With PRP in hand, the doctor injects it into the site of the injury, which causes the body’s immune system to enter high alert and quickly react to the injection. White blood cells will flow in and begin to remove damaged cells, a natural part of the healing process to prepare for further healing. Stem cells begin to multiply, repairing the injury that has been suffered by the affected tissue. Again, the healing process is very natural, and simply spurred on and influenced by your own blood being moved to another part of the body that normally doesn’t see quite as much of it.
Patients can often go home the same day following PRP Therapy. While multiple injections over time may be necessary, this is an excellent way to reduce and relieve pain in several areas of the body.
