Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is a relatively new treatment for muscular and skeletal injuries which accelerates and enhances healing via the body's natural inflammatory process. It utilises a component of blood from the same patient, containing a higher concentration of growth factors compared to nromal blood, which is injected into the injured area to accelerate and enhance healing. When compared to cortisone injections, PRP shows slower but nonetheless greater long term improvements and less injury recurrence.
