Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Doctor and patient

Platelets are best known for their importance for blood clotting. PRP contains concentrated platelets which release many growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF), epidermal growth factor (EGF) and interleukin 2 (IL-2). PRP can also help promote collagen production. These growth factors and collagen production can help to treat painful areas.

After a simple blood draw, we are able to concentrate the amount of platelets in the sample.  and then inject those platelets into the area that causes pain.
