PLATELET RICH PLASMA INJECTIONS
Platelet-rich plasma makes it possible to heal painful injuries, using a person's own blood.
Platelet-rich plasma injection, or PRP injection, is used to support tissue regeneration. PRP is used for a variety of common orthopedic conditions. PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from your blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process of chronic injuries. Growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. By injecting PRP into areas of an injury, the hope is to stimulate and optimize your body's ability to heal the chronic conditions. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, other blood cells important in healing, and growth factors. Dr. Dupon offers Platelet rich plasma injections in Lafayette, LA.
