Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has become an increasingly popular choice for many people that are looking for all-natural pain relief and recovery assistance. This revolutionary treatment offers a wide variety of benefits for many health conditions and aesthetic applications.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP Therapy offers many patients all-natural pain relief – but how exactly does it work? To begin explaining PRP injection treatment, let us define two elements of your blood:
Platelets: Very small blood cells (cell fragments) in blood that are involved in clotting and repairing damage in blood vessels.
Plasma: The carrier of the three components of the blood – white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Plasma carries water, salts and enzymes and transports nutrients, hormones, and proteins to the parts of the body that need it.
Your own blood has healing properties – this is what PRP treatments begin with. Platelet-rich plasma injections harness the platelets and plasma in your blood to help heal degraded or damaged tissue and reduce pain.
PRP injections are made from a sample of your blood, which is spun to concentrate the platelets. These platelets are then combined again with plasma and injected directly into the area of the body that needs help with healing. This mixture contains growth factors (from your platelets) that stimulate tissues and cells to regenerate, replacing damaged cells with renewed cells.

Health Benefits of PRP Therapy
Since PRP therapy harnesses the natural healing properties that already exist, the treatment is considered to be all-natural and highly beneficial with significantly less downside than traditional medicine. Some benefits that our patients experience is reduced downtime for recovery, leaving many patients able to continue with their normal activities right after treatment. There is also little risk of rejection since the treatment simply comes from a patient’s own blood. For many patients, PRP treatment for pain and recovery means that there is no need for reliance on painkillers as well.
