Joint Restoration is a relatively new technique that uses the growth factors in your own blood to accelerate healing of damaged tissue. It is most commonly used for ligament and tendons strains and sprains. It is also popular to decrease the pain and promote healing of joints with osteoarthritis. A small sample of the patients’ blood is drawn and the platter rich component is removed. This component also contains the body’s growth factors used in healing damaged tissue. The concentrated formula is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting the healing process. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection.
