Platelets are blood cells found in the bone marrow. These contain protein which is effective in blood clotting and wound healing. These qualities are what make them very valuable component in several treatments including PRP Therapy.

Do you know platelets work inside the body? Once they are released in the bloodstream, they would circulate in the body for 7 – 10 days. The platelets would accumulate at the site of the injury and form a clot. After this, it will release growth factors to speed up the healing process. Just how powerful is PRP? Concentrated PRP contains at least 1 million platelets per 6 cc’s. Ideally, platelet concentrations in the 3-5 million ranges are better since higher concentration of platelets means more growth factors and theoretically faster healing.

To put it simply, PRP contains and releases several growth factors that stimulate the healing of bone and soft tissue. If you are looking for an all-natural way of healing the body, PRP therapy is for you.
