Knee PRP Injections As a Much Better Alternative To Surgery
What Are PRP Injections
PRP, also called platelet-rich plasma, is a relatively low-pain, low-risk procedure that uses your own blood to stimulate growth in injured tissues. Recent evidence suggests that PRP may be an effective treatment in managing pain associated with knee osteoarthritis.
Growth factors are found in platelets in your blood. PRP operates under the theory that injecting growth factors from the blood into an injured area will cause new tissue to form. That is supposed to reduce inflammation in the tissue. When growth factors interact with local cells, they signal them to initiate cell division and migration. This promotes tissue formation.
You may be a good candidate for PRP if your symptoms of arthritis of the knee are not manageable through conventional methods such as anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, and physical therapy. Or maybe you got surgery in the past, and the pain never seemed to disappear or ease.
PRP injections are considered experimental, however. That means that they may not be covered by insurance. It also means that there is limited research on the safety and effectiveness of this treatment. Work closely with your doctor before starting any experimental treatments.
