Platelet Rich Plasma

by Admin on May 18, 2012

Platelet rich plasma is injection technique that is being used morefrequently to treat tendons and soft tissue injuries. Usually this is carried out by removing a small amount of a patient’s blood, spinning it in a centrifuge in order to separate the platelets from the other parts of the blood. These concentrated platelets are next injected back at the site of the patient’s soft tissue injury. The theory behind this is that the growth factors that platelets usually secrete can aid tissue recovery from the injury.
