Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are growing in popularity with celebrity athletes like Tiger Woods and others.
These shots, come from your own blood. They are often used to treat sports injuries. We've also seen success with healing wounds after surgery.
Plasma allows the red and white blood cells and platelets move through your bloodstream. Platelets are the blood cell responsible for your blood clotting. They play a critical role in your body's healing.
We use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on injuries or damage to tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and skin.
In addition to helping injured tissue heal, some studies show PRP injections reduce pain and boost the body's mobility. It is especially useful for people with rotator cuff injuries.
