What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet rich plasma injection (more commonly known as PRP injection or PRP therapy) is a treatment that involves injecting a small amount of one’s own blood into slowly healing soft tissue injuries in order to speed up the body’s own healing process.
So, what are platelets? Platelets are a part of our blood which aid in clotting and tissue healing. They contain and can release a number of growth factors, special biologically active proteins that play an important role in tissue healing and regeneration.
Platelets rich plasma or PRP is designed to accelerate your body’s healing of musculoskeletal injuries naturally, without subjecting you to significant risk or adverse effects.
