What is PRP? PRP, or platelet-rich plasma is a natural regenerative medicine treatment for pain relief that utilizes a person’s own blood. PRP injections are effective for easing a range of different painful conditions by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms and helping to repair damaged tissue.

What is a PRP Injection?
A PRP injection is created by spinning a sample of your own blood in a centrifuge. As the blood spins at high speeds, the platelets separate from the red blood cells. The platelets are highly concentrated and contain healing properties that can aid in tissue regeneration and pain relief.
Once the platelets are collected, they are made into injections and introduced back into your body to areas that are in need of healing. PRP is a natural treatment that gets to the root cause of your pain for long-term results.
The problem with a lot of conventional treatments is that they only focus on the symptom, which is the pain, and not the cause of the pain. If you continue to mask the symptoms with medication, it never addresses what is causing the pain and the cycle will continue. This type of pain management is never effective on a long-term basis.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
When you have PRP injections, they promote healing by fixing the underlying conditions that are causing you pain. Platelet-rich plasma therapy promotes healing by encouraging proliferation, remodeling and inflammation in your cells and tissues. Once the cause of your pain is no longer there, the pain has no reason to be there either and your healing will be complete.
This natural treatment doesn’t take up much time out of your day and requires very little downtime so you can get back to your day. The fact that it is made from your own blood means that the chances for rejection are almost none.
There are no dangerous chemicals or questionable ingredients and the procedure is minimally invasive and consists of little more than a needle.
