Osteoarthritis Treatment with PRP Therapy

The Benefits of PRP Injections for Knee Pain

What is PRP?

PRP is a type of regenerative injection therapy that uses your own blood platelets to speed up the healing process. It is designed to reduce inflammation and pain in the affected area while also stimulating tissue regeneration and promoting natural healing. The procedure involves collecting a sample of your blood, isolating the platelets and using them as medicine. The concentration of platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into the knee joint where it can reduce inflammation and pain.

How do PRP Injections Help with Knee Pain?

The benefits of PRP injections for knee pain are numerous. Injecting PRP directly into the joint releases growth factors that can heal damaged cartilage, reduce inflammation, and increase blood flow to relieve pain and promote healing. The result is a healthier joint with improved movement and greater range of motion. Additionally, the platelets used in PRP also contain certain substances that reduce scarring on the area so you achieve better long-term results.

What are the Benefits of PRP Treatments?

The benefits of PRP treatments are significant. Patients can enjoy improved movement in the knee, increased range of motion, and dramatic pain relief. PRP injections also stimulate healing and prevent further damage thanks to the release of growth factors into the joint. Furthermore, these treatments are safe and virtually free from side effects since they use your own body’s cells and products..

How Long Does It Take for PRP Injections to Take Effect?

The results of PRP injections can typically be seen within 4 to 6 weeks of the treatment, though they may take longer in some cases. Most patients experience significant improvement in their knee pain after receiving three treatments, spaced fairly evenly apart. Additionally, PRP treatments have proven to provide long-term relief for many patients over a period of 1-2 years.

Are There Side Effects or Complications From PRP Injections?

Overall, PRP injections are considered safe, with minor side effects such as temporary swelling and tenderness at the injection site. The vast majority of patients report that they do not experience serious side effects or complications during or after the treatment. Patients should always have a discussion with their doctor before undergoing any type of medical treatment to discuss potential risks.
