Platelet Rich Plasma regenerative injections are highly sort after by clients wanting a better chance at fixing tendinous and other connective tissue complaints. PRP can be used for cartilage, ligaments and tendon repair. The PRP is a natural process involving the client’s own blood, which is then modified to enable enhanced healing properties before being reinjected into the injured area. Steroid injections are also available.
