Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a treatment to accelerate healing of tendon injuries and osteoarthritis naturally. The PRP procedure uses a patient’s own blood components and growth factors to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues. The body’s natural reaction to an injury is to send platelets and white blood cells from the blood to the damaged tissues to initiate healing. Your body’s platelets store numerous growth factors which are released through signals from the injured tissue.
New advancements in medicine now allow us to concentrate platelets and white blood cells from your blood, and encourage this growth factor release as we inject the solution directly into injured tissue, simulating this same healing response in a much more potent form. By enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity, this treatment has been shown to lead to a more rapid, more efficient, and more thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state.
