Putting Off Knee Surgery? Consider Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection Therapy
If you had a knee injury, or suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee and have been told you need replacement surgery but are scared to have it done, ask your doctor about platelet-rich plasma injection therapy instead. This non-invasive treatment is performed by injecting a high concentration of platelets into the affected joint and tissue. This will stimulate tissue repair and increase healing using your body's own processes for healing. The results are permanent. Here are just a few benefits of having this treatment.
One of the biggest benefits is the rapid reduction of pain. You should experience a reduction in pain the same day as you have the treatment done. There will be no need for a recovery time the way there is with surgery. As the treatment continues to stimulate tissue growth and healing, your pain will be reduced until you do not feel it at all anymore.
Because your body will be healing and growing healthy tissue, you will find that you can move easier. As the joint becomes stronger you will have better mobility and will not have to rely on things like walkers or canes. While you might not be able to run or dance like you did when you were younger, it is possible that you will be able to do some of this from time to time. Of course, with time and exercise, you may find you can get back to almost normal. Keep in mind that even with knee replacement surgery it is not recommended that you run or do a lot of things that affect your knees without slowly working our way up to it.
No Chance of Surgical Complications
There are a number of things that can go wrong during and after surgery. In addition, you will have a scar. Platelet-rich plasma injection therapy services are non-invasive and safe. You will not need to worry about anything going wrong or having an incision to take care of while recovering. In addition, you will not have any metal or other foreign materials in your body.
It would be best to have this therapy done as soon as you are injured or at the first sign of joint damage. However, if you are just now finding out about this option and have been putting off having surgery done, talk with your doctor about how this option could help you.
