At one time or another, most everyone has experienced some type of knee problem. It’s not surprising as the knee is the largest joint in the body and essentially supports the body itself. Traditional treatments for knee pain have included anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections or even surgery. As the professional sports community already knows, platelet rich plasma therapy is a promising, natural treatment option for virtually anyone suffering from knee pain.
Common Knee Conditions
Knee pain has a number of causes, resulting from normal wear and tear to overuse or even injury. Regardless of how it happens, knee pain can be debilitating, affecting your day-to-day functioning.
One of the most common knee conditions is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone which can cause pain and stiffness.
Other conditions such as chronic tendonitis, as well as cartilage and ligament damage are also common.
The goal of any treatment is to reduce pain and improve function; however, medications and steroid injections may not always provide enough relief. And, surgery comes with inherent risks, plus often lengthy rehabilitation.
How Can Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Help?
PRP therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that repairs joints without surgery. The treatment works by isolating your body’s natural healing factors and delivering them right where you need them. IMAC Regeneration Centers is the leading PRP therapy clinic in the nation. We use a form of platelet rich plasma known as “Pure PRP,” due to its high concentration of platelets and the growth factors retrieved in the harvesting process. The process works by taking a tube of your own blood, spinning it in a centrifuge, and then injecting the activated platelets into your damaged tissue. Clinical studies have shown that PRP has improved function and decreased pain to joints, muscles and connective tissue.
