Platelet Rich Plasma Injections Promote Healing in Your Body

The platelets in your blood play an important role in how your body heals wounds and other soft tissues. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections use the platelets from your own blood that are isolated and concentrated using a centrifuge. Then the PRP injections can be given to the patient to help promote healing in the body of soft tissues such as:

  • Tendons
  • Ligaments

Once your blood has been put through a centrifuge, the platelets are injected into the injured or damaged tissues. The PRP injections promote the growth of cells to repair the tissue. Clinical studies on PRP injections have shown that it can help improve a patient’s function and decrease the pain in their joints. It’s been shown to be helpful in joints such as:

  • Elbow
