PRP Therapy (Overview)

Platelet rich plasma therapy can help injured joints and other problems. It uses platelets and platelet factors in your own blood to reduce pain and speed up healing. Platelets are "first responsive" to an area of injury. They release platelet factors which signal the body about the injury and attract other cells to the area to help heal the injury, including stem cells. PRP is the own body's healing ability concentrated down. It can be injected into injured area of muscles or joints, like the knee, shoulder, hip, to decrease inflammation and pain to promote healing.
