Your blood contains four ingredients: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma.
Your platelets play a crucial role in clotting your blood, but they’re also a source of powerful healing resources, namely growth factors, or proteins. When you’re injured, your platelets arrive on the scene to stem your bleeding through clotting. At the same time, they also release growth factors, which accelerate rebuilding and repair on a cellular level.
But your body works at its own pace, which is where PRP therapy comes in. By isolating your platelets and redirecting them to your damaged tissue, our doctors provide a much-needed boost to speed up the inflammatory cascade and subsequent healing.
Since PRP is prepared from your own blood, it causes no concern for rejection, infection, or disease transmission.
