PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by natural production of stem cells. PRP involves concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP has been used in surgeries to promote cell regeneration since 1987,and a growing body of evidence shows it is a viable treatment for tendinosis. Not until recently, though, have experts researched and debated whether or not platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are an effective treatment for osteoarthritis..
