Your body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. As part of that process, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to a site of injury. Platelets are known to release a variety of factors that respond to tissue injury, where they initiate and promote healing. By concentrating platelets and plasma at the site of injury, Dr A.J. Cummings has the potential to enhance the body’s natural capacity for healing with PRP. Dr A.J. Cummings treats patients from Peoria, Morton, Pekin, Springfield, Bloomington Normal, Chillicothe and other cities.
PRP can be used in Cosmetic Medicine as well as in orthopedic injuries.
