PRP injections are an effective way to heal your body from injuries and reduce your pain that might not be possible without the additional help of the platelet-rich plasma. It works by harnessing your body’s natural ability to heal itself by sending chemical alerts to the area, activating the healing process.

Platelet-rich plasma injections use the healing properties in your blood called plasma. Plasma is an almost clear serum with a high number of platelets, proteins, and growth factors. This plasma is introduced into the injured tissue. Once the PRP injection is administered to the affected area, it starts to fast-track the healing process.

How are Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections Made?

  • Your blood will be drawn.
  • Your blood sample will then go through a process, called center fusion, where it will be spun at high speeds. This will separate the red blood cells and the plasma.
  • The plasma will then be made into injections and administered in areas that need healing.

The platelets start working as soon as they are injected by releasing powerful growth factors to start the process of tissue repair and attract healing cells to the area. This helps to speed up your healing time or promote healing in older injuries, helping you achieve pain relief faster.

This safe alternative to surgery uses your own blood to help revive and renew damaged tissue. Since it is created from your own cells, the body will not reject PRP injections.
