Blood is composed of a fluid component called plasma that can be separated from the small, solid components (red cells, white cells and platelets). PRP simply means the prepared plasma has more platelets per volume than the patient’s own whole blood. The concentration of platelets can be two to ten times greater (or richer) than the patient’s blood and thus more factors. During tissue injury the platelets aid in clotting blood and as the “first responders” to injury, they contain over 1, 500 proteins including anti-inflammatory and growth factors. These factors aid in initiating the healing response at a site of injury and when used as a knee injection can improve the balance of the inflamed knee environment. What are PRP injections? To prepare PRP injections, blood is drawn from the patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and are concentrated by spinning at high speeds in a centrifuge. The concentrated platelets and the plasma portion are then ready for injection. There are many ways to prepare PRP.
