How does PRP work?
Blood is mainly a liquid called plasma, however, it does contain red cells, white cells, and platelets which are solid components. Platelets, known for clotting, also contain hundreds of growth factors, which are vital in healing injuries in the body. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is plasma with 5 to 10 times a richer (or greater) concentration of growth factors – so it is that much more healing to injuries.
How does it work? Laboratory studies have shown that because PRP contains an increased concentration of growth factors it can potentially speed up the healing of an injury, which is invaluable to athletes. To prepare PRP, blood is drawn from a patient. Then the platelets are separated from the other blood cells and their plasma concentration is enhanced during a process called centrifugation. After centrifugation, the enhanced plasma is then combined with the remaining blood and will be injected carefully into the targeted area.
