Knee pain is a common problem that can be caused by a variety of conditions, such as osteoarthritis, injury, or overuse. Many people with knee pain turn to surgery as a solution, but not everyone is a candidate for surgery or wants to go through the invasive process. Thankfully, there is an alternative treatment option that is non-surgical, effective, and has a faster recovery time: Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy.
PRP therapy is a non-surgical treatment that involves taking a sample of the patient’s blood and then processing it to concentrate the platelets. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the affected knee joint. The platelets contain growth factors that promote healing and repair of damaged tissue.
PRP therapy has been found to be effective in treating knee pain caused by:
- Ligament Injuries
- Strains and Sprains
In a study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, PRP therapy was found to be effective in reducing knee pain and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis. Another study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research found that PRP therapy was effective in reducing knee pain and improving function in patients with chronic patellar tendinitis.
PRP therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery for knee pain. It is a non-surgical treatment that can help to repair and regenerate damaged or diseased knee tissue.
