PRP Treatment For Athletes

In simple terms, PRP Therapy is an injection therapy made up of an individuals own blood sample that has been spun to the point where the blood becomes rich in healing. This solution of concentrated platelets and growth factors is then then injected into the injured area to promote healing. PRP therapy relieves pain without the risks of surgery.
