PRP Therapy Explained
Your blood has platelets and plasma already in it. That’s what your blood consists of, among other things. PRP is taking your own blood, crafting it into platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it back into the problem areas. Platelets already help to form clots and stop bleeding. However, they can also promote healing and increase the growth of new, healthy cells to decrease healing time.
Your blood would be collected, utilized to create the platelet-rich plasma, and then put back in through injection into muscles, joints, tendons, or wherever the trouble area is.
Many conditions can be helped with PRP therapy. For example, this approach can benefit those dealing with age-related inflammation, elbow issues, joint or tendon problems, and even hair loss.
