You can give it a try.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Although platelet-rich plasma
(PRP) injection has been suggested to have a promising effect in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis
, the proposition still requires further studies for confirmation. Nevertheless, you can give it a try. Platelets contain significant amounts of cytokines and growth factors which are capable of stimulating cellular growth, vascularization, proliferation, tissue regeneration, and collagen synthesis. Delivery of high concentrations of cytokines and GFs to damaged tissues by PRP is considered to have a beneficial effect on tendon and cartilage tissue regeneration. Please note that the effects of these treatments are short term and their local and systemic side effects cause frequent problems. PRP injections
aim to promote cartilage repair
and relieve osteoarthritic symptoms, potentially delaying the need for joint replacement
surgery. Try it. No specific suggestions.
Let me know if I could help further.
