Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
We know the body has the power to heal itself in many ways. Each day, scientific research furthers our understanding of this self-healing process and ways we can better tap into it. One way of helping the body heal and repair itself is through platelet rich plasma therapy.
How Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Works
The blood is rich in platelets, which contain valuable growth factors. Growth factors have been shown to repair bone, muscle, regenerate cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. They have also been found to aid in wound healing, and improve appearance by regenerating tissues and reversing the signs of aging.
ThriveMD offers platelet rich plasma therapy, using the patient’s own blood, to treat these conditions non-surgically. This FDA-approved therapy involves drawing blood from the patient and then, using a special device, separating the platelets from the other cells in the blood. This platelet-concentrated blood product and the growth factors derived from the platelets in this special process is then injected back into the patient at the desired site where it stimulates the body to heal; repairing the injured site, and growing new tissue.
