Platelet-rich plasma injections may lead to improvements in tissue healing

Platelet-rich plasma injection (PRP) is an emerging therapeutic procedure in medicine and rehabilitation for the treatment of both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. It involves collecting blood from the patient's arm, separating the platelets via centrifuge and injecting it back into the patient's injured tissue area to augment (or facilitate) the body's natural healing response.
