A small amount of blood is taken, and is specially prepared to extract your own plasma, which is the golden liquid part of your blood. The plasma contains your own growth factors, the building blocks of your tissue. This plasma is then injected, sometimes by itself and sometimes with other compounds, directly into the injured area of the shoulder. This process provides an immediate concentration of growth factors to the damaged muscle cell for repair and rejuvenation, and stimulates a cascade of healing cells, which work to remove old damaged tissue and grow and protect new muscle tissue. This is technically a ‘rebuilding’ of that muscle tissue. With the proper exercise and movement protocol, this tissue can then grow stronger and return to normal function, and the cycle of inflammatory degeneration is broken. It is important to note that you must also manage any poor biomechanical factors or actions which caused the initial injury, to prevent it from reoccurring.
