Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) - In this procedure, Dr. Matt draws blood from a horse. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the blood components. This process distills a portion of the blood to a platelet concentration which is five times richer than normal blood while removing the red and white blood cells.
PRP provides growth factors which enhance healthy cells to the tissue injury, forms new blood vessels, forms new connective tissue, and regenerates skin growth.
PRP can be use to treat:
