PRP FOR JOINTS, LIGAMENTS, MUSCLE AND MORE
PRP for joints is gaining traction as a therapeutic agent that takes advantage of the natural healing properties of a patient’s own blood to repair damaged joints, ligaments, muscles, cartilage and even bone. It’s a pain management solution whose time has come. The beauty of this therapy is that PRP treatments require neither extended stays in hospitals nor a prolonged recovery stage.
PRP is short for plasma-rich platelets. Blood is made up of red and white blood cells and platelets which travel through the bloodstream in a watery medium called plasma. Plasma contains proteins, nutrients, antibodies and other components.
