PRP Therapy (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy has been around since the mid-1990s

In a nutshell, a PRP injection delivers a high concentration of endogenous (your own “home-grown”) platelets to an area of injury. IT IS YOUR OWN BLOOD THAT IS USED
To understand the therapeutic value of PRP injections, you need to have a basic understanding
of the make-up of blood. Blood is composed of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
It’s these platelets that are the injury’s “first-responders” and help revascularize an injured area, construct new tissue, and stop the bleeding.
Because platelets play a significant role in the healing of tissue, reintroducing a high
concentration of platelets directly into the injured area may enhance the healing process.
