Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a procedure that is increasingly being used in the treatment of injuries to tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints, such as chronic tendon problems and sprains. In the past, such injuries tended to be treated with medication, physiotherapy or sometimes surgery. PRP injections can also be used to treat osteoarthritis in certain circumstances.
Platelet-rich plasma offers an effective and minimally invasive alternative, using your own blood to promote healing. It is a form of regenerative medicine, which focuses on harnessing and amplifying the body’s own natural healing abilities.
