If you're looking for a natural way to accelerate your body's natural healing process, you may have heard of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy.
What is PRP?
PRP is a concentration of platelets and growth factors in your blood. Platelets are responsible for clotting your blood and contain growth factors that help your body heal. When injected into an injured area, PRP can accelerate healing by stimulating new tissue growth.
To create PRP, a small sample of your blood is taken and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood rapidly, separating the platelets and growth factors from the other blood components. The resulting PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets and growth factors that can be injected into the injured area.
