Platelet-rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections help the body along with its natural healing process. A doctor or medical professional will draw a small sample of blood and process it in a centrifuge to separate the blood cells from the platelets. The separated platelets are then injected into a numbed area of the back.
Platelets contain many healing properties such as growth factors, proteins, and cytokines. When a high concentration is introduced into a damaged area, it helps the body heal properly.
