What is PRP?
Platelet-rich-plasma therapy (PRP) is a form of regenerative medicine that can promote the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue by increasing the number of reparative cells your body naturally produces. PRP therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.

Key advantages of PRP injections are reduction in need of anti-inflammatories or stronger meds, limited side effects since the injections are created from your own blood, and provides a minimally invasive solution to an acute or chronic injury or ailment causing pain and discomfort.
