WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a concentrated solution made using a patient’s own platelets. After being injected into the person’s body, it promotes healing of the injured areas, including, tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Plasma is a component of the blood that contains special factors, which support blood clotting. Blood also contains proteins, which are essential for cell growth, thus speeding up the healing process.
PRP treatment, including PRP therapy in Spring Hill, has been proven to be effective, AND it’s approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Many famous professional athletes like Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal have received PRP treatments for various injuries and conditions such as sprained knees and chronic tendinitis. PRP has been credited by some athletes because they claim it allowed them to return to their game more quickly.
