Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelets are commonly found circulating within healthy blood and perform two main functions. The first function is stop bleeding within recently damaged tissue.  The second function is to signal healing cells over to an injured area in order to coordinate an effective healing response in injured tissue through the release of various growth factors.


Platelet Rich Plasma therapy harnesses the effective qualities of platelets with a fairly simple process: Blood drawn from a patient is placed in a centrifuge, which separates blood cells and platelets. The result is highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is injected into the specific area of the body that needs repair. The tissues around the area of repair react to the growth factors signaled by the platelets. The presence of growth factors induces a cascade effect, where the area surrounding the injection site is flooded with nutrients and repairing cells, and the process of cellular growth and repair is initiated and maintained.  Overall the introduction of platelets into a damaged musculoskeletal region amplifies the body’s natural ability to heal without surgery or pharmaceuticals.
