The PRP treatment is a sort of cocktail of many beneficial proteins that aid repair and regeneration in tissues such as tendons and bone. It involves cutting-edge technology with the bodyÃ¢s natural ability to heal.
Platelets have been found to release healing Ã¢growth factorsÃ¢ into the bloodstream. PRP proteins also work to reduce inflammation and ease pain.
