PRP injections also help with conditions associated with cartilage damage and arthritis. PRP therapy works by using the body’s natural healing process; it is a concentration of platelets with growth factors that are taken from the patient’s own blood and then injected into the damaged tissue to promote tissue repair and accelerate healing. The use of PRP could help a patient avoid further damage to the joints, tissue, and ligaments as well as reducing the need for further surgery. PRP has been shown to help with faster recovery times, and reduce inflammation and other complications depending on the severity of the injury. Professional athletes regularly use PRP in order to seek a faster and longer-lasting recovery from their injuries.
