Platelet-rich plasma, PRP, can amplify the body’s ability to repair itself & can help push through a healing process that might be stuck. Find out if PRP is right for you!
What is PRP?
Your blood consists of solid cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, which are suspended in a liquid called plasma. The platelets contain hundreds of “growth factors,” which are proteins that play a vital role in the body’s natural healing process.
Being able to separate these components is nothing short of revolutionary. Once separated, there is a distinct difference between the blood cells and platelets allowing for a high quality therapeutic modality. The future is here.
