Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Chronic Knee Pain

When suffering from chronic knee pain, one treatment that may definitively help is PRP (platelet rich plasma). A simple procedure where the doctor extracts some sample of blood and after a centrifugation process, plasma is obtained. This plasma mixed with some white cells is then injected into the infected area. The therapy motivates the body’s own immune system to react and repair damage tissue; therefore, heal. Make sure to consult your doctor and evaluate with him the benefits as well as the expectations you may have versus the possible outcomes before receiving the treatment.
