PRP Injection Therapy
PRP stands for Platlet-Rich Plasma, which is a form of natural therapy to help the body restore itself from injury faster.
What is Plasma?
Whole blood contains a liquid portion, which is where you find the plasma. Largely made up of water and proteins, it serves both the red and white blood cells to circulate throughout the body.
How do you use PRP to heal the body?
PRP is completed via injection and is of your own platelets to accelerate the healing process of any injury and improve any musculoskeletal problems; e.g. ruptured or torn tendons, ligaments, muscles or joint tissue, as these are the hardest and longest to heal.
How does it work?
Similar to when you have blood work done, you fill a few tubes where the plasma is able to be separated and activated. Once this process is complete, it is then injected directly into the pain point where this process helps to repair and restore the cells your body and initiate a speedy recovery, especially post surgery.
Depending on the area you are targeting, and the severity of the damaged area, PRP injects can take around 30 minutes per area.
