PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Blood plasma that is enriched with platelets contains protein growth factors that initiate wound healing which enhance the access of healthy inflammatory cells to areas of injured tissue. They also help to encourage the formation of new blood vessels and connective tissue.

What's the Process?

A blood sample taken from horse and immediately processed to separate blood plasma rich in platelets from the red blood cells.

This PRP with its associated growth factors is then immediately injected into the soft tissue lesions creating what some call a "super-clot" that serves to help create a biologic scaffold upon which the body's own cells migrate and produce new collagen fibrils along lines of tension in the structure being treated.
