Platelet Injections is an intriguing in-office procedure that allows doctors to inject Platelet Injections into an injured location while also stimulating our bodies’ natural ability to recover. Doctors can extract Platelet Injections from a patient’s own blood using Platelet Injections therapy.

Platelet Injections contains a high concentration of growth factors that can help the body mend itself and reduce pain in a specific region.

How Does Platelet Injections Work?

Platelet Injections is human blood that has been isolated from the blood cells using a centrifuge. The blood in our bodies is made up of 93 percent red blood cells, 6 percent white blood cells, and 1 percent plasma and platelets. Platelets are our bodies’ inherent defenses that aid in the healing process. Platelets are sent to the wounded area as the body’s first response to tissue injury. These cells are well known for their clotting capabilities, but they also naturally provide an extraordinary healing component for muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints.

We use concentrated numbers of healing platelets and distribute them to regions of the body that need rapid healing utilizing Platelet Injections therapy. Platelets initiate the healing process by attracting Regenerative Therapy to the damaged site. We can inject these natural healing platelets into tendons, muscles, ligaments, and joints with Platelet Injections therapy because we can pinpoint the specific location of the lesion.

Platelet Injections therapy is a practical, time-saving, and effective outpatient treatment option. Many patients return to their usual lives with little to no recovery time due to low downtime and rapid procedures. The number of injections varies depending on the particular condition of each patient, but usually ranges from two to six injections spaced out over time.

After the first or second injection, patients usually notice a significant reduction in discomfort.
