Some forms of pain, like those associated with an old injury, respond well to regenerative medicine techniques like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. PRP uses your own blood to heal your pain.
The platelets in your blood naturally contain a healing agent called Growth Factor 1 (GF1), which promotes regeneration. During a PRP treatment, your blood is drawn, centrifuged to multiply GF1, and reinjected in the painful area of the body. Your rejuvenated blood goes to work in helping your body heal itself.
