PRP therapy is the injection of plasma in the form of injections. For the procedure, the doctor at the Prima Vertebra clinic takes a little blood from the vein from the patient. Then the blood is scrolled in a special centrifuge. As a result plasma is separated from erythrocytes, the concentration of platelets increases in it. Platelets are blood cells that stimulate tissue repair. After treatment in a centrifuge, the concentration of platelets in the plasma increases by 30% compared to conventional blood.
The resulting light liquid is injected with a thin needle into the affected area. For example, during the procedure PRP therapy for the joints of the prick is made directly into the joint cavity. Platelets, getting into tissues, intensively isolate growth factors. This contributes to the restoration of tissues near the joints and spine. The procedure lasts no more than 15 minutes.
