PRP is a simple process that uses the blood's healing mechanism to boost the body's healing potential. Plasma contains growth factors and platelets.
When using PRP to relieve knee pain, plasma is extracted from the patient's blood turned into an injection. The PRP is then injected into specific areas of the knee. The PRP then goes to work, helping the body heal underlying damaged tissue. By healing underlying damage to the tissues in the knee, the patient can experience pain relief by correcting the pain source.
