PRP (PLATELET-RICH PLASMA) THERAPY
WHAT IS PRP (PLATELET-RICH PLASMA) THERAPY?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, commonly known as PRP therapy attempts to take advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bone. The procedure takes a small amount of a patient’s blood, isolates the platelets and injects the growth factors they release directly into the injured area stimulating the release of stem cells from vessel walls, where they promote the body’s natural healing response of further augmenting repair.
