After an injury, your body sends messages to recruit cells, hormones, and clotting factors to repair the damage. In fact, you have seen this many times before. For example, even a simple injury results in inflammation (redness, swelling, and heat), which is your body’s mechanism to bring more blood, and therefore more platelets with healing properties to the area.
However, if a major injury occurs, sometimes the body does not have enough tools to completely repair the area. In turn, the combination of regenerative scaffolding and PRP treatments create a solid mesh to fill the empty injured space. Your body also uses a protein called fibrin to seal off the injured area. Through the innovation of modern medicine, our surgeons use the Hula Cup (which is a device used to concentrate your platelets and fibrin proteins). This combination supports the injured area quicker and get you back to your daily activities.
