How does PRP work
To understand how it works, we need to look at the role that platelets play when the body sustains an injury or trauma. When the body sustains an injury, surgical or traumatic, it starts a chain reaction and platelets are often among the first cells on the scene to take charge along with a number of growth factors. If injury leads to bleeding, the platelets will first obtain hemoestasis – ie stop the bleeding. However, that is not enough as the injury needs to be repaired. The platelets directly or indirectly lead to the release of various substances, signal molecules and cells that will form a vital part of further repair and healing. In normal whole blood, the concentration of platelets is 150,000-400,000 platelets per microlitre of blood with an average of around 200,000 platelets/mcl.
