They, along with other athletes and any person living an active lifestyle can benefit from Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) when it comes to injuries and chronic pain. If you are looking to avoid surgery, additional surgery or to speed up the recovery from a recent surgery, PRP is an option to consider.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?
If you are like many other people, PRP is not something you are familiar with. The therapy procedure can be described in 3 easy steps. First, blood is taken from the person who is being treated. Next, the blood is put into a device and spun at high speeds. Lastly, the area of the body needing treatment is injected with a concentration of the platelets. The therapy takes under an hour from the time the blood is drawn until the time it is injected.
