What is PRP therapy?
PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy leverages the restorative abilities of growth factors that are found in blood platelets. The treatment process is relatively simple:
- A small blood sample is taken from the patient.
- The blood sample is processed to separate platelets from other blood components.
- The platelets are concentrated and increased during a process called centrifugation.
- The concentrated blood platelets are then injected into the patient’s injured joint or tissue, sometimes with an anesthetic, to help stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and reduce pain.
The results of PRP therapy may vary, but this treatment is widely recognized as a safe procedure with minimal side effects as the patient’s own blood is used.
