We are excited to announce Mission Naturopathic Clinic is now offering PRP Treatments!
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is produced from a person’s own blood. It is a concentration of platelet cells which are critical for blood clotting. These platelets contain many factors that are essential for cell re-building and regeneration that is required for the healing process!
How does PRP work?
PRP can be used for a number of different reasons. After a blood draw is obtained from a patient, a portion of the blood and the platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation.
The increased concentration is then added back into the drawn blood, ready to then be injected into the particular affected site. Because PRP contains growth factors that heal damaged tissues, it works by naturally triggering localized inflammation, collagen production, and other regenerative processes.
What is PRP used for?
This procedure can help with treating hair loss, improving skin elasticity and wrinkles, unresponsive chronic pain and injuries, tendinitis symptoms, trauma or sports related knee or leg pains, torn ligaments, sciatica, a bulging herniated disc, as well as osteoarthritis!
