What is PRP Treatment?

PRP Therapy, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, is a type of treatment that speeds up the healing process for some certain injuries. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment is first used to cure muscle, bone, and joint injuries, especially for tennis players and athletes. Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Rafael Nadal, Stephen Curry are some of the professional sportsmen who have been treated with PRP.

In PRP Treatment, the patient’s own blood is used and the platelets are removed from the blood and injected into the skin. Platelets are small cells that contain clotting and growth factors. Due to the large number of growth factor in the platelets, PRP stimulates healing.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy has gained attention as it hastens the healing process of the injuries of the professional sportsmen. Afterward, it has been started to be used in OrthopedicsDentistryPlastic Surgeries and in Hair Transplantation.
