PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from your blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process of chronic injuries. Growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, uses injections of a concentration of a patient's own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient's own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
PRP offers no instant pain relief, but regenerates healthy tissue which takes anumber of weeks. Most patients are able to return to work the day following the procedure.
