What is PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is an FDA-approved treatment that harnesses the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Here’s how it works:
- A small blood sample is taken from the patient.
- The sample is processed in a centrifuge to separate growth factor-rich cells from other components of the blood.
- The cells are then concentrated, sometimes with a mix of an anesthetic to help numb pain, and injected into the patient’s injury site.
This therapy delivers a high concentration of healing platelets to help stimulate the healing process, promoting the growth and repair of connective tissues in the knees, shoulders, hips, and other areas of the body. Because the patient’s own platelets are used, PRP therapy is considered to be a natural and safe treatment.
