PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that contains a high concentration of your body’s natural healing powers. Made from a sample of your blood, PRP therapy is used by many health care providers to promote healing of injuries, alleviate chronic joint pain, rejuvenate the skin, and restore hair loss.
Health and Happiness in the Boro is dedicated to providing you with the most innovative treatments and therapies available and offers PRP therapy as a treatment option for chronic pain conditions.
PRP therapy works by providing your diseased or damaged tissue with the healing properties needed to stimulate or accelerate the natural regenerative process. Normally when you have an injury, your blood delivers a high concentration of platelets to the area to stop the bleeding.
In addition to blood clotting, platelets also contain growth factors and specialized proteins that stimulate the repair process to heal damaged tissue.
For your PRP therapy, the team at Health and Happiness in the Boro draws a sample of blood from your arm. Then, they spin the blood in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and healing properties from the other components in your blood.
They inject the PRP directly into your diseased or damaged tissue to get the desired results.
