What does platelet rich plasma therapy involve?
Platelet rich plasma therapy leverages the natural healing abilities of the patient’s own blood cells. The treatment process is relatively simple. First, a small blood sample is taken from the patient. Then, using medical equipment known as a centrifuge, the sample is processed to separate the growth factor-rich cells from other blood components. These cells are then concentrated and injected into the injured area of the patient to stimulate the body’s healing mechanisms and, in turn, reduce symptoms and improve mobility.
