Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy and Its Numerous Benefits

Public figures and athletes are using it to help with boosting recovery, yet there is so much more to PRP than meets the eye.

To briefly explain what PRP therapy is, it uses a patient's blood to allow the body's natural growth factors. In this form of therapy, doctors isolate the plasma and inject it into damaged tissues. The blood plasma consists of specific proteins that promote blood clotting as well as cell growth.

PRP therapy also has cosmetic benefits in addition to helping with recovery. It can aid men and women with tackling the issue of hair loss and can also be used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis (a well-known degenerative joint condition), soft tissue inflammation in the body, repetitive stress disorders, and more. As the treatment comes from the blood of the patient, the possibility that the body will refuse the PRP medication will be eliminated.

If you are considering PRP therapy in 2020 to address a condition for which you may be struggling, please contact us and we will help you decide whether it is the right decision for you.
