What is PRP:

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative treatment for injuries to tendons, muscles, and ligaments.
PRP is a treatment that uses the bodies natural healing processes to treat an acute or chronic injury in a magnified and enhanced way.

How is it done?

A vial of your own blood is drawn and spun down in a centrifuge. The red blood cells are removed and what is left over is a concentrated dose of platelets suspended in plasma. This resulting PRP is a concentrated dose of your own growth factors and cellular signals your body uses to heal and regenerate tissue. Your PRP is then injected into the problematic area re-initializing a healing process in a magnified and enhanced way. This process is great for tendonitis, muscle tears, and ligament injuries.
