What are PRP injections?
To prepare a platelet-rich plasma injection, 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 mixed with nutrients are then ready for injection.
What are the benefits of PRP injections?
- Help delay or avoid major surgery
- Help with healing after a surgical procedure
- Recovery is faster than a surgical procedure
- Treatment may be in the office as an outpatient procedure
- They are natural substances found within the body rather than drugs or chemicals
- No side effects
- Long time results
What Is Knee Osteoarthritis?
Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative type of arthritis. This “wear-and-tear” condition usually occurs in people aged 50 years and older but can occur in younger individuals as well.
With osteoarthritis, the cartilage in the knee joint will wear away gradually, becoming frayed and rough. This then decreases the protective space between the bones resulting in bone rubbing on bone and producing painful spurs or projections.
Why Should Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis Consider PRP Injections?
Platelet-rich plasma knee injections can help heal painful knee injuries and conditions, by using the patient’s own blood sample. This is how they differ from other traditional methods of managing osteoarthritis knee pain like cortisone injections, anti-inflammatory medicines, surgery, and physical therapy.
PRP injection knee osteoarthritis therapy can help reduce inflammation in the affected area by restoring hyaluronic acid, a clear substance in the body that repairs damaged or aging tissues, through growth factors in the platelets. They signal cell division and migration, eventually promoting tissue formation.
Where in the Body Are PRP Treatments Injected?
PRP injections are administered directly in the affected area where the joint, ligament, or tendon is damaged. PRP treatment can also be injected in areas where the patient feels pain.
What are the precautions and guidelines before PRP?
Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medicines one week before the PRP treatment.
Prepare the possibility of using crutches up to two days after the injection.
Have someone drive them home.
Other Conditions can be treated by PRP?
PRP treatments can also help patients who suffer from lower back pain, tennis elbow, degenerative joint disease, and even hair loss. The growth factors in PRP can help stimulate accelerated hair growth.
