Get rid of pain faster by using your own platelets


Rich Plasma (PRP) is a thirty-year-old procedure used by dental surgeons to help patients heal faster. It is a popular procedure among elite athletes. It is now more widely used for patients with tendon, muscle, ligament injuries, and to reduce arthritis/osteoarthritis pain.

How PRP works is still a mystery. What we know is platelets are rich in different proteins and hormones that stimulate cell growth and repair them to heal injuries and reduce pain. If you have tried everything and you are still in pain, ask your healthcare providers if that procedure is a possibility for you. Ohw magazine, Okanagan Health & Wellness magazine, winter 2015, p.16
