Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, has become commonly talked about for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, especially chronic ones.
Many famous athletes — Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, Kobe Bryant, to name a few, have received PRP for various problems, such as sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. Some athletes have credited PRP with their being able to return more quickly to competition.

Platelets are blood cells important for clotting, but also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.
PRP is the portion of blood that has a high concentration of platelets — and, therefore, a high concentration of growth factors.

To speed healing, the injury site is treated with the PRP preparation, usually via injection. Typically, PRP is tried for conditions like chronic tendinitis, bursitis and arthritis. Especially when more traditional treatments have failed.
