PRP for Knee Arthritis

Posted On 20/09/18

People of all ages love an energetic life. Nobody wants to sit at home all day staring at the ceiling. Everyone loves to travel, to go out, to hike, to go for a nice walk in the park, to go see a distant relative etc. Travelling is something that everybody loves irrespective of age. But sometimes certain diseases make it difficult for some people even to walk because of joint pains.


Young people can get a knee injury due to accidents but older people have age-related knee issues. In both cases, walking becomes a herculean task. Majority of the older generation have to deal with arthritis or joint pain almost always. Climbing a flight of stairs or walking or sitting down might become extremely difficult for people with joint pains or arthritis.

Arthritis is the main disease affecting the knees of older people which is due to old age. The sharp pain in the knees makes it difficult even to move around in their house. An infection is also one of the causes for a joint pain in the knees. It is possible that some kinds of knee pain can be treated well by using rehabilitation methods rather than surgery. But for worse cases, surgery is the best option to get rid of joint pain or Arthritis.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Knee Arthritis

Platelet-Rich Plasma(PRP) means processed blood plasma, which are concentrations of plasma with platelets from which red blood cells and white blood cells are completely removed. This concentration of plasma, taken from the patient’s own blood is injected into the injured area to remove the pain and to heal it completely. The platelets are rich in proteins called growth factors, which helps in the healing process and speeds it up. PRP injections can be used to heal chronic tendon injuries, acute ligament injuries or knee arthritis.
