Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy For Horses
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy offers a safe, fast and easy solution for increasing the speed of healing in tendon and ligament injuries, wounds and even arthritis. It can be used in acute, chronic and non-healing wounds and injuries. PRP has been used for years in human medicine with great success. PRP is collected from your horse’s blood and is injected into the affected area. It contains concentrated platelets and other growth factors that help regulate inflammation, promote tissue repair, influence formation of new cells, stimulate vessel formation, reduce scar tissue formation and provide an analgesic (pain-relieving) effect.
