Plasma is 90% water and contains proteins, nutrients, electrolytes and antibodies needed for bone, cartilage and joint health. Platelets restore, heal, regenerate, and have growth factor properties. The combination of platelet and plasma injections into the joints regulates cell division, stimulate tissue regeneration, and therefore promote healing.
Platelet and Plasma contain growth factors that aid in the healing process of chronic injuries over a short time. Platelet and plasma is obtained from the patient’s own blood making it an optimal and natural substance to initiate the healing response within the joint.
