PRP Therapy for Whiplash

If you have whiplash, platelet-rich plasma therapy may help. It uses natural growth factors from your own blood to help your body heal itself. PRP can help your neck feel better and function better. A small volume of your blood is taken from a vein.  It is spun in a high-speed centrifuge. This separates it into platelets, plasma, and red and white blood cells. The platelets are then concentrated and mixed with some of the plasma. This solution is the “platelet-rich plasma.” The doctor injects this solution into your damaged and inflamed tissues. Over time, this mixture increases  the ability of your body to repair and rebuild damaged tissues
