Platelet-rich therapy is common among athletes since it helps in recovering from injuries. However, this is not its only use.

How PRP Therapy Works
The platelets have a vital role in the human body, including enabling blood clotting, which prevents more bleeding in case of an injury. Also, it has proteins that assist wounds in the process of healing.
Many people often wonder how therapy works. Well, a little blood sample is removed from the patient’s body, then placed in a unique device that spins at a fast rate.
Through these, platelets are set aside from other components in the blood. The platelet’s concentration is injected into the organ of the patient’s body that needs to be treated.
