How does Platelet Rich Plasma help joint pain

The body’s ability to heal is remarkable. As part of our suite of Restorative Medical services, the Longevity & Stem Cell Centre offers Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP), a powerful therapy that uses concentrated, enriched blood platelets to aggressively target areas of the body in need of growth.

 

PRP treats common sports injuries

Commonly used for sports injuries, PRP has had proven results in treating Shoulder, Elbow, Knee and Ankle pain.

 

Clinical Research

Since 1987, PRP has been utilized by Orthopedic Surgeons to promote tissue rejuvenation. In a 2013 clinical study by D. Patel, it has been reported that “Knees treated with 1-2 PRP injections saw a reduction in pain and an improvement in function at 6wks and 3 months while the control group saw an increase in pain/stiffness and a decrease in knee function (ie: their condition(s) worsened over time). A second 2013 clinical study by C. Halpern noted that most patients experienced less pain and noticed no progression of knee degeneration as confirmed by MRI 1 year post PRP injection.For those who have undergone and failed Physical Therapy, anti-inflammatory medication therapy and/or steroid joint injections, PRP injections may be the natural remedy to bring about a relief in pain and an increase in joint function.
