Our blood is normally made up of 93% red blood cells, 6% white blood cells, 1% platelets, and plasma. The platelets contain a class of proteins, called growth factors, that are key to healing damaged cells, muscles, tendon, ligaments.
During the treatment, a little of your blood is extracted and processed (spun) in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets so that they are concentrated in the plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected back into the area treatment is required.
