Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment
Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment involves using your own platelets to hasten healing in your body. This treatment is becoming much more widely used, primarily because it has been adopted by high-performance athletes as they recover from injury or surgery. During this treatment, the doctor will numb the area that is injured, then draw blood from your vein. The blood is centrifuged to separate platelets from plasma. The platelets are then injected into the body at the site(s) of pain.
