What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses a patient’s own blood components to stimulate the healing response in damaged tissues. In response to an injury or tissue damage, your body naturally recruits platelets and white blood cells from the blood to initiate a healing response. Under normal conditions, platelets store numerous growth factors which are released in response to signals put out by the injured tissue.
In this treatment, blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a special processing unit, which separates platelets, white blood cells and serum from red blood cells. Those cells are then injected into the joint or tissue under a sterile procedure, stimulating a healing response in a more powerful way. By enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity, the treatment may lead to a more rapid, more efficient, and more thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state.
