Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical treatment for tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries. Platelets are cells of the blood and are best known for their function in blood clotting. In this procedure, a certain amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The components of blood are then separated, and thus concentrated, in a process called centrifugation. The fraction of blood that contains the platelets is collected and injected into the site of injury. As PRP is taken from the patient’s own blood, the risks associated with PRP injections are minimal! To learn more about PRP Therapy, watch the informational animation video down below!
