Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a high concentration of the patient’s platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Using each patient‘s individual healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems has a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.
Some of the key advantages of PRP injections are the reduced need for anti-inflammatories or stronger medications like opioids. In addition, the side effects of PRP injections are very limited as they are created from your blood. Your body will not reject or react negatively. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, arthritis, and spine condition.
