Platelet-rich plasma is a concentration of your own blood platelets. We collect a sample of your blood and spin it down to separate the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets. Platelets play a critical role in healing wounds and soft tissue injuries by activating stem cells to regenerate new, healthy tissue. An injection of platelet-rich plasma gives your body a natural boost to accelerate the healing process. Many patients report pain relief in addition to rapid healing.
