Platelet rich plasma, most commonly known as “PRP”, is a regenerative medicine treatment that involves injecting a concentrated solution of platelet derived natural healing factors.
Platelets are specialized types of blood cells that are first and foremost involved in forming a clot to stop bleeding after an injury. In addition, platelets contain a host of healing proteins and growth factors that help to initiate repair of damaged tissue.
How do we harness the natural healing properties contained in these growth factors and proteins within the platelets.
- Draw blood
- Process blood in centrifuge
- Concentrated solution obtained
- Final concentrated solution is injected
- Injected platelets release growth factors and healing begins
“Between sports, body building and growing older, my knees were really bothering me. Walking up stairs or stepping off uneven surfaces was quite painful and my lower body performance in the gym was suffering. After only my first set of PRP knee injections I had nearly 100% pain-free movement in both knees!”
