There exist several research indicating that injecting areas of tissue damage or inflammation with high concentration of platelets, it can relatively speed up the healing process at the wounded area.
So what occurs is a small blood sample is taken from the person being treated and put into a centrifuge or other specialized device that spins at high speed. This process is used to separate platelets from other blood components. The concentration of platelets is then injected into the area of the person's body that needs to be healed. The reason being that the injection contains a high concentration of platelets, which can be from 5 to 10 times more than the untreated blood, doctors put forward that the platelets will speed up healing.
