Treating Neuropathy At The Source With Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma is derived from a small sample of your own blood, which is spun through a centrifuge to separate the healing platelets from the other components present in the sample. When these platelets are concentrated into a potent, golden solution, they can be injected directly into your area of need to heal your body from its neuropathic pain rapidly. Because this solution comes from your own blood, there is little to no chance of adverse side effects or complications.

No matter the cause, PRP therapy is a viable treatment option that can help get you out of pain and help you find relief from your peripheral neuropathy symptoms.
