PRP Injections Provide Effective Arthritis Pain Relief
PRP injections are a cutting-edge treatment for arthritis pain. Many people with arthritis try many different pain relief options before they find something that really works for them. Some of these options include steroids, which can have harsh side effects or even surgical options. PRP injections can prevent you from ever having to go through surgery or deal with difficult prescription medication side effects.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections are a life-changing answer for many people debilitated from the effects of arthritis. It is fast, safe and you can receive the injection right in the clinic. These injections are specifically targeted to work right at the exact site of your pain. In fact, Dr. Dehdari, our board certified radiologist, is specially trained in the most proficient ways to place the injection. He guides the PRP treatment with the aid of ultrasound guidance technology.
The PRP procedure is quite simple. A small blood sample is taken from the patient. This is placed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood so rapidly the platelets separate from the other cells in the blood. The platelets are then injected right into the area of concern. Because the PRP is so densely loaded with platelets, it accelerates the healing process dramatically. In a regular blood sample, the percentage of the powerful platelets are only in about 6% of the blood. The platelet-rich plasma contains as much as 94% platelets. This highly concentrated plasma is packed with growth and healing hormones to spur the regeneration of healthy tissue. PRP injections can regenerate tissue, including muscle, cartilage, tendons and bones.
PRP Can Offer Relief for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis has some similar symptoms to osteoarthritis. Both types of arthritis cause joint pain and stiffness, as well as redness, swelling and damage. When osteoarthritis is at work, the cartilage in a joint will show signs of wear and tear, leading to painful symptoms. With rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s immune system goes on the attack, destroying the membranes that surround and protect the joints. This condition typically attacks in pairs of joints. Both knees will begin to deteriorate or both elbows will show signs of damage. Rheumatoid arthritis is an immune system malfunction. This type of arthritis can include fatigue, fever, loss of appetite or anemia. A single patient could experience all these difficult symptoms at once, along with chronic pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is often treated with additional medication, along with NSAIDs and corticosteroids. These additional drugs can be from a class known as disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and/or biologic agents. However, PRP can offer relief to patients with rheumatoid arthritis as well as osteoarthritis.
While every patient responds to treatment differently, PRP injections could offer you the pain relief you have been missing. Whether you are diagnosed with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, PRP could end your pain with just a single treatment.
