The next few weeks are bound to be full of activity and excitement for more people of all ages, but for those suffering with arthritis, these can also be painful days. Overexertion, not getting the rest you need and changes in your diet can affect your well-being and cause arthritis flareups. Fortunately, you minimize flareups with good habits and effective treatment.

When Pain Relievers Don’t Work

It would be wonderful if every time you had a problem with arthritis you could take a pain reliever and the pain would be gone. That is not always the case. For arthritis pain in the ankle, knee, hip and shoulder, there is an alternative treatment that can keep you moving and relatively pain-free. This treatment uses your own blood plasma rich with platelets to help heal painful areas affected by arthritis.

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP treatment, is directed into the joints that are giving you problems. Unlike pain relievers that affect your entire body and may or may not work, PRP treatment is a minimally invasive technique that works in the precise area where it is needed.

Beyond Pain Relief

When you are hurting, of course you want the pain to go away. Pain relievers are made to do just that, treat the symptoms and dull the nerves or block the nerve signals to the brain, so you no longer feel the pain. The conditions causing discomfort remain the same, and in fact, over time they can get worse, since the cause is not being addressed, only the symptoms.

PRP treatments do not only address the symptoms, they slow the progression of osteoarthritis. These treatments also inhibit inflammation in the joint. Inflammation is one of the major causes of arthritis pain and discomfort. PRP treatments also work to stimulate the formation of new cartilage and increase the synovial fluid in the joints. These work together to ease joint friction and provide pain relief.

This holiday season, give yourself the gift of pain-free movement. Ask your doctor about PRP treatments for your osteoarthritis. Contact Advanced Healing Institute for more information. Call us today to schedule your appointment for consultation.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went in to to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

Dr Reza is FANTASTIC. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. I was in such pain. He diagnosed the issue (Bursitis) and clearly understood everything about it from A-Z. So efficient and understanding, not to mention making the procedure painless. I barely slept a hour the night before, saw Dr. Reza at 5pm and was feeling a million times better by 7pm. It's been 36 hours and I went from practically a frozen shoulder in pulsating pain to gaining back 70% of my movement range and most importantly "NO PAIN". just stiffness which is the normal symptoms as kindly explained to me by Dr. Reza. Everything is as promised, I am fully confident that I will be back to 100% range of motion within 3 days. I'm still gonna take it easy and slowly stretch my shoulder back to full strength. Without his service, I would probably be feeling like I was hit by a truck laying in bed miserable. Thank you very much Dr. Reza for helping my aging old bones. Cheers!

I can’t say enough about how intelligent Dr. Reza Dehdari is! I came to him to read my MRI for my ankle and he found a tear that multiple Doctors missed!!!! Simply incredible and I trust him throughly. Thank you so much!

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Dr. Reza Dehdari you are an amazing person. Thank you for going the extra mile on my shoulder after three Doctors told me I needed surgery. You took your time and explained everything about what to expect and to be patient while I heal. And that’s exactly what I did was heal, I can’t thank you enough for what you did for me.

Within the last 6 months I've suffered two minor injuries on the same knee which have restricted my mobility and caused me a lot of pain. I've seen an orthopedic dr.,, a pain management dr., and a sports medicine dr., all of which simply told me either surgery or learn to live with the pain! I've heard about PRP as an alternative with a high percentage of success. Thus, I made an appointment to see Dr. Dehdari, and was pleasantly surprised by his high level of knowledge, professionalism and thoroughness. Dr. Dehdari reviewed my MRI (previously ordered by the Orthopedist) explained the extent of my injuries, took X-Rays and an ultrasound to carefully determined if I was a good candidate for PRP. I can only say that I wish more doctors will give you the time, attention and care that Dr. Dehdari provides. Thank you Dr Dehdari, thank you for such high work ethics and patient care. Many thanks to his staff as they are as attentive and caring as Dr. Dehdari. It has been only 24 hrs since I received my PRP treatment and my pain levels have drastically gone down! I highly recommend Dr. Dehdari.
