Plasma, consisting of proteins and water, makes up a major proportion of blood and acts as a medium to transport the necessary blood components such as red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
PRP injections are prepared by taking 30- 60mls of your own blood and spinning it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into the affected area, be that injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces. Growth factors or healing proteins consists of tissue repairing ingredients that block pain receptors and activate anti-inflammatory responses within the injured site.
Ultrasound imaging is sometimes used to guide the injection to the right spot.
