Platelet Rich Plasma "PRP"
Platelet Rich Plasma "PRP" is blood plasma enriched with platelets. PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue. The blood is pulled from your own horse and processed that day to produce a small quantity of plasma rich in platelets. This PRP is then injected directly into the lesion using ultrasound guidance.
