What is platelet rich plasma therapy?
Platelet rich plasma therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that focuses on restoring damaged tissues rather than simply addressing symptoms. This treatment leverages the body’s natural mechanisms to stimulate healing in injured joints, ligaments, or muscles without the need for surgery or heavy drugs. The treatment process is relatively simple; a small blood sample is taken from the patient and processed in a lab to separate growth factor-rich blood cells from other blood components. From there, the growth factor-rich cells are concentrated and injected back into the patient’s injury site. In many cases, platelet rich plasma therapy can help accelerate the healing process and provide relief from painful conditions like osteoarthritis and ligament tears.
