Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injection treatment whereby a persons own blood is used. The blood is spun down in a centrifuge to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, Platelet Poor Plasma and Buffy Coat). Platelets are very small cells in the blood that are involved in the clotting and healing process.

When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the treatment area they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells and growth factors to repair the damaged area.
As a result, new collagen begins to develop. As a collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the damaged area. When treating injured, or damaged tissue, they can induce a remodeling of the tissue to a healthier and younger state. The full procedure can take minutes to an hour.

Prolozone therapy is prolo-therapy followed by ozone injection technique that is excellent for many forms of musculo-skeletal, degenerative and arthritic pain.  In many cases Prolozone actually corrects the pathology of the disorder.
