Platelet-Rich Plasma

 

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelets are a component of an individual’s whole blood. They are isolated by a quick process and reinjected into the site of injury. Once injected, these healing powerhouses release and recruit growth factors and stem cells that are crucial for tissue repair.

Heal your body the natural way — and stop your pain.

Why We Need PRP

Ligaments and tendons do not have an abundant blood supply, making it difficult for injuries to heal completely or properly. The growth factors released and recruited by PRP promote blood supply and collagen synthesis to the injured area.
