PRP treatment for long-lasting pain relief

The body’s natural reaction to an injury is to send platelets from the blood to damaged tissues to initiate healing. Platelets store a vast array of growth factors which are released at the site of injury through cell signals received from the injured tissue to mediate healing.

How does PRP treatment work?

PRP treatment is carried out by injecting a concentration of platelets directly into the injured tissue. This stimulates the same healing response in a much more potent form. The autologous PRP treatment uses your own concentrated platelets and growth factors to stimulate and enhance the body’s own healing response to treat acute injury, inflammation or chronic degenerative disease.

The treatment can encourage healing and reduce inflammation and is therefore an effective method of treating musculoskeletal conditions.
