PRP Therapy

PRP Therapy Saginaw Valley Equine Clinic

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting edge way of treating age old athletic injuries involving soft tissue tendons and ligaments. After taking a sample of the patient's blood, in minutes a high-speed centrifuge separates and concentrates plasma rich in platelets from red blood cells. This PRP, along with its associated growth factors, is then immediately injected into the soft tissue lesions creating what some call a "super-clot" that serves to help create a biologic scaffold upon which the body's own cells migrate. These cells produce new collagen fibrils along lines of tension in the structure being treated. Sometimes even used in conjuction with stem cell treatment, PRP is a treatment that uses the horse's own cells and molecules to stimulate more rapid and stronger healing in a variety of structures.
