Solving Arthritis Pain with PRP Treatment

Learn the Pros and Cons of PRP Treatment for Arthritis

There is no question about it, arthritis is debilitating. It utterly transforms the way you live, often resulting in intense chronic pain that prevents you from engaging in the activities that you love. While there is currently no cure for this degenerative disease, there are treatments, such as PRP treatment, that can improve the quality of life.

PRP Treatment to Relieve Arthritic Pain

Studies have shown that PRP treatments have successfully relieved osteoarthritic pain in the knees and have high potential to relieve arthritis in other joints as well.

Some theories about why PRP is such an aid to relieving arthritis is that it is an inhibitor to inflammation which slows down the progression of osteoarthritis. It also can stimulate the formation of new cartilage and increase the production of natural lubricating fluid in the joint, thereby easing painful joint friction. Finally, it contains proteins that alter a patient’s pain receptors and reduce pain sensation.

Whatever the reason, PRP treatments have shown to provide many benefits to arthritis. But there are also some concerns for its treatment benefits, learn more about the pros and cons of this treatment.
