How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Help?
When you first experience a soft tissue injury, your body responds by delivering platelet cells to the damaged area. Platelets, which are packed with growth and healing factors, initiate repair while attracting the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy intensifies the body’s ability to heal by delivering a higher concentration of platelets.
How is PRP Therapy Performed?
We draw a small sample of your blood (similar to a lab test sample), and place it in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds. This separates the platelets from other components.
We then inject the concentrated platelet rich plasma into and around the point of injury, which jumpstarts and significantly improves your body’s ability to heal. Since we use your own blood, there is no risk of transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
