Stimulating your body’s ability to heal

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment used for a variety of common pain and orthopedic conditions. PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from your own blood, rich in growth factors that can expedite the healing process of acute and chronic injuries. Growth factors are biochemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. By injecting PRP into areas of an injury, the goal is to stimulate and optimize your body’s ability to heal by supporting and enhancing growth and regeneration, a process that slows down significantly with aging and is a contributing factor also to a lot of chronic conditions. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors.

PRP and stem cell therapy often times have synergistic effects that enhance the effect of one another for repair.

PRP has extensive uses in repair of joints and musculoskeletal conditions.

Human growth factors have been widely studied and today there are clinical applications of several individual growth factors. Autologous platelets are an excellent source of growth factors due to their biological properties and their endogenous origin. They are now the main source of growth factors used to facilitate wound healing. It has been shown that the application of a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) enhances early wound healing.
