The Science of PRP Therapy
The human body is composed of 93 percent red blood cells, 6 percent white blood cells, and 1 percent platelets. Platelets are great for stopping blood loss through blood clotting, but they’re also used by the body to aid in healing injuries as well as regenerating new tissue.
Because the body’s initial reaction to an injury is to send platelets to the injured area, PRP can successfully stimulate repair by the release of growth factors as well as attracting stem cell to the site.
PRP injection therapy involves separating the platelets from the red blood cells through the use of a machine called a centrifuge. The entire process of drawing the blood from the patient and spinning it down into a concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma solution takes about thirty minutes.
