Treating Knee Pain with Platelet-Rich Plasma

advanced-wellness-20A recent study conducted by researchers from Hospital for Special Surgery found that Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment improved pain and function for patients with knee osteoarthritis, with 73% of patients seeing delays in the progression of the disease. While previous studies have found that patients with osteoarthritis can lose nearly five percent of cartilage per year, this study discovered that a majority of patients had no further cartilage loss following the treatment.

PRP is a new treatment option aimed to relieve knee pain without the risk of surgery. When the soft tissue of the knee is inured, the body reacts by delivering platelets back to the injured site to attract stem cells and begin the natural healing process. With PRP, this process is intensified as a high concentration of platelets is delivered to speed up healing.

The procedure is conducted by drawing a small sample of blood, which is then placed in a centrifuge that quickly spins the blood, separating the platelets from other components. The concentrated PRP is then injected into and around the injured area to activate growth factors and stem cells, which help to repair the injured tissue. Because the procedure is conducted using the patient’s own blood, the risk of infection or allergic reaction is extremely low. The procedure is usually performed within one to two hours and pain relief occurs within three to four weeks, continuing to improve over a period of three to six months following treatment.
