Because PRP accelerates your body’s ability to heal and regrow tissue, it has been successfully used by professional athletes to address musculoskeletal injuries, including injured ligaments, tendons, and muscle – not just for healing but for pain relief.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves injecting you with a concentration of platelets sourced from your blood. Once PRP is injected into the site of your pain, the growth factors jumpstart your body’s natural healing mechanisms, repairing damaged tissues and reducing inflammation. As inflammation levels and swelling go down, your pain is reduced. PRP therapy is an excellent option when other methods like steroid injections or oral pain medications have failed.
PRP can also be used in conjunction with Trigger Point Injections.
