Knee Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection for Knee Pain & Arthritis
Premier Clinic offers knee Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment for those with knee pain or arthritis.
Injections of PRP for knee arthritis is a clinic based procedure where a small amount of blood is collected from you. The blood is prepared in a special apparatus placed into a centrifuge and then injected back into the knee.
PRP has recently received a lot more attention as a treatment to minimize or alleviate the pain associated with arthritis of the knee.
Research shows that patients who received PRP injections for osteoarthritis of the knee responded better than their counterparts who received Hyaluronic Acid injections alone.
Most patients begin to feel better two to four weeks after treatment.
