Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative therapy that combats inflammation and enhances your body’s natural ability to heal. If you’re dealing with an injury or chronic pain condition, PRP may be the solution you’re looking for.
Platelets are a component of our blood cells that are primarily responsible for regulating our blood’s ability to clot properly, but they also play a vital role throughout the healing process. When the body experiences a traumatic event, platelets immediately get to work. Naturally, the more platelets that are available to address the trauma, the faster and more effective the healing process becomes.
Platelets accelerate the healing process by first quietting inflammation, and then, stimulating the restoration and repair of damaged cells.
Thanks to the high concentration of growth factors and cytokines, platelets are highly effective in delivering proteins and peptides to the affected area to kick-start the immune system so that healing can take place.
Through advanced technology, we’re able to conveniently prepare your PRP injection in our clinic using just a small sample of your blood. Using your blood sample, we’ll separate the blood to separate your platelets into the plasma that will then be injected into the area that’s causing you pain. The injections are very safe, and pose little to no risk of adverse reaction.
