Are you tired of living with chronic knee pain? Are you avoiding activities and missing out on life due to the limitations imposed by your knee injury or arthritis? Fortunately, there is a solution that can help preserve the cartilage and ligaments in your knee: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Unlike traditional steroid injections that can further damage the cartilage in your knee, PRP therapy utilizes your body’s own healing properties to alleviate pain and improve function. PRP therapy has been shown to be effective in treating knee pain caused by both injury and osteoarthritis (OA).
In fact, a study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that PRP injections significantly reduced pain and improved function in patients with knee OA.
At Better Life Clinics
, we specialize in regenerative treatments such as PRP that provide a better quality of life for patients with knee pain or injury without drugs and surgery. We like to mix it up by adding HA (gel) which provides relief from acute discomfort while allowing the precious tissue to repair itself through regeneration methods employed on-site at our clinic using your own blood!
The procedure for platelet-rich plasma therapy is quick, easy, and has the potential to improve your quality of life! We take a blood sample from you in our office. Using an FDA-cleared centrifuge system the PRP will then be extracted and concentrated. It is then injected into your knee joint for it to start healing it with its healing factors.
All while being pain-free. The whole process takes less than an hour, but results start to show after just a few weeks. That’s because it can take time for tissues to grow and provide support – this is where HA gel comes in! It helps relieve your pain while the PRP regenerates new ones so you have relief on both fronts at once.
Who Can Benefit From PRP for Knees? PRP is a great option for patients with knee pain because it treats issues such as arthritis, tendinitis, and other injuries. It has been shown to help those who have had surgeries on their knees or damage from certain sports activities like football where there isn’t much cartilage left behind.
It has the ability to stimulate connective tissue healing and repairs the damage done by injury or illness within the joints themselves! If you’re suffering any of the following, PRP may be your best option: Your movement feels blocked off by inflammation daily tasks become harder than usual due in part to your joints becoming stiffer/more inflexible If you are tired of living with knee pain and are looking for a solution that can potentially delay or even eliminate the need for surgery PRP is a great option for patients who are looking to get relief from their knee pain.

While the results from PRP injections will vary depending on a patient’s individual symptoms and lifestyle, your program may include other treatments like acoustic wave therapy, physical therapy or exercises that can help reduce pain in addition to this procedure. Imagine a world where your sore knee felt better than it ever has before.
