PRP Therapies | Boynton Beach, FL
PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy is injection techniques that are used to promote repair and reduce inflammation naturally. The targets of PRP injections are typically joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
When a typical blood draw is spun down in a centrifuge at the right speed you get a layer of plasma (a normal component of whole blood) that is rich in platelets, hence PRP. When platelets are activated in the body they release healing proteins called growth factors. Injection of PRP can accelerate tissue and wound healing. PRP has been used for over twenty years safely and effectively in a variety of fields including dentistry, ophthalmology, orthopedics and many other surgical specialties.
