Arthritis is a common condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints. It can be debilitating and significantly impact a person’s quality of life, making it difficult to perform daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs, or even gripping objects.
While there are medications available to manage the symptoms of arthritis, many people are looking for more natural and long-term solutions.
One promising treatment option offered at Envista Medical is regenerative medicine, which aims to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Regenerative medicine has the potential to significantly improve the quality of life for people with arthritis by providing a permanent solution to the underlying cause of the condition.
One type of regenerative medicine that has shown promise in relieving joint arthritis pain and inflammation is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy involves the injection of a concentration of platelets, which are cells found in the blood that are involved in the healing process, into the affected joint.
The platelets release growth factors that stimulate the repair of damaged tissue and reduce inflammation.
PRP therapy has been shown to be effective in relieving pain and improving function in people with osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and other joints.
It is a relatively quick and minimally invasive procedure, with most people experiencing little to no downtime afterward. Many people report significant improvements in their symptoms after just one or two PRP injections, and the effects can last for several months to a year or more.
PRP therapy is safe, with few risks and side effects. Our doctor will sit with you and answer any questions you may have about the regenerative medicine treatments we offer at our clinic. Our doctor will consider your specific condition and medical history to determine if PRP therapy is an appropriate treatment for you.
Regenerative medicine, specifically PRP therapy, may be a promising treatment option for relieving joint arthritis pain and inflammation. It has the potential to provide long-term symptom relief and improve function, allowing people with arthritis to lead a more active and pain-free life.
