Platelet rich plasma

With PRP therapy, we amplify and focus your body’s own healing power.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses your platelets to treat an injury.

Your body uses platelets to clot blood, like when a cut scabs over, and to promote healing. It’s well-known platelets help cuts to scab but they also contain proteins called growth factors that stimulate healing.
