Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Injection for Early Knee Osteoarthritis - Result you can't believe

The treatment, also known in the field of the platelet rich plasma therapy and sometimes referred to as PRP therapy or autologous conditioning plasma (ACP) therapy, aims to use blood’s healing abilities to repair damaged cartilage muscles as well as ligaments, tendons, or even bones.

Platelet-rich plasma is derived from a part of blood that the patient has. It is the treatments using PRP to treat patients contain plasma that has a higher quantity of platelets than is found on normal blood.

What is plasma?

Plasma is liquid component of the blood. It is the medium used for transporting red and white blood cells, as and other components that circulate throughout the bloodstream. Plasma is mostly water however it also has sugars, proteins glucose, antibodies and sugars along with other elements.

How do you define a platelet?

Like red and white blood cells, they are an integral part of blood. Platelets don’t have any restorative or healing properties , instead they release growth factors and different protein molecules that control the division of cells and encourage the regeneration of tissues and promote healing. Platelets are also helpful in helping the blood to clot. Patients with a low number of platelets or a lack of platelets might be more susceptible to bleeding due to an injury.

What makes platelet-rich plasma beneficial in a way?

Platelets are a form of blood cell. They are most famous because of their ability to aid blood clotting. They also contain a variety of growth factors, or proteins.

Plasma therapy that is high in platelets stems from the notion that growth factors aid in the healing process. The process, which makes use of the patient’s blood is a method of segregating plasma cells from blood, which is the liquid part of blood. This procedure increases the amount of platelets. Then, they are reintroduced to the plasma.

The plasma has now been found to contain more than usual amounts of platelets. This is what a physician might inject into the area that has been damaged as a result of injuries or diseases.

Plasma-rich platelet treatment in Thane can help with knee pain, and is especially helpful for those who haven’t had success from other treatments.

What is the platelet-rich plasma therapy accomplish?

  • Lower inflammation while slowed down the progression of osteoarthritis.
  • The growth of cartilage is stimulated by the stimulation.
  • Increase the manufacturing of fluids that naturally occur in the joint, thereby reducing the friction in joints that cause pain.

  • Instability and discomfort in several joints.
  • Injuries throughout the body, like knee injuries, elbow, shoulder and other joints.
  • osteoarthritis
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • chronic pain chronic pain
  • Strains and strains, sprains and strains

What is the platelet-rich plasma function?

A medical professional will draw the blood sample from your body. They’ll put your blood into a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood at different speeds until it’s divided into layers. One layer is plasma which is high in platelets. The plasma layer could be as much as three times the quantity of platelets in normal blood.

 

The platelet-rich plasma will be injected into your affected region. The doctor will treat the area using local anesthetic. The pain may increase in the following two weeks. It could take a few weeks before you notice any improvement.

After the PRP Injection: Immediate Follow-up Care

After your treatment, your doctor might recommend you:

  • The area is then iced for 20 minutes every two to three hours over the initial two days after the procedure. Some redness and swelling can be seen immediately following the procedure.
  • Be aware of any activities that put stress on the area of the treatment
  • It is possible to elevate the joint during the night when you lie down in a position where your knee (or the joint affected) raised on two pillows.
  • Don’t take any anti-inflammatory pain medication other pain medications may be prescribed by a doctor.
  • Check with your physician prior to begin an exercise routine that is vigorous like running or cycling.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Effects on ......

Osteoarthritis on Knee

In the instance the case of PRP treatments to treat knee pain research has demonstrated that certain kinds of treatment using platelet rich plasma can be efficient in treating knee osteoarthritis.

The treatment of knee osteoarthritis isn’t easy because of the insufficient ability of knee cartilage to regenerate. There is no treatment for osteoarthritis. The focus of treatment is on reducing symptoms and decreasing the need for knee surgery.

Chronic Tendon Injuries

Platelet-rich plasma may be useful in the treatment of tendon-related injuries which are persistent such as tennis elbow. But, when it comes to the event of other tendon injuries , such as knee injuries in jumpers specialists suggest treatment using platelet-rich plasma is not likely to be as effective as conventional treatment.

    Before and After Knee Replacement Surgery

    FAQS

    Knee replacement is required for advanced arthritis of the knee joint, producing painful limitation of movements and restriction in activities of daily living. Knee replacement as a solution should be offered when all non–surgical methods of treatment failed and painkiller medicines and injections also failed to reduce the Knee and hip pains.

    Knee replacement can be total or unicondylar, depending on the number of compartments involved. Among the total knee replacement, there are two popular designs- Cruciate Retaining, and Posterior Stabilized. The decision for the design is best taken by the operating orthopedic surgeon based on the integrity of ligaments. Patella resurfacing as a routine is a debatable subject.

    Yes, most knee replacement surgeries are minimally invasive, with numerous benefits to the patient, including smaller incisions, less tissue trauma, bleeding and post–operative pain, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and earlier return to work and activities — in weeks rather than months. Advantages of Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery. Patients Start walking in few hours of surgery. Patients start climbing the staircase from second day of his surgery.

    The most significant risks include Infection, Deep vein thrombosis,and Aseptic loosening of implants. The risks correlate with the co-morbid medical condition, and must be discussed with the patient before surgery.

    A single knee replacement takes approximately 90 min- 2 hours. Both knee replacement surgery takes approx 2-3 hours.

    Years ago, knee replacement surgery was reserved for elderly patients due to a high complication rate and lack of implant durability. Modern techniques have allowed orthopaedic surgeons to base surgical decisions on a patient’s pain and disability, and not necessarily chronological age. Most patients who undergo knee replacement are between the ages of 50 and 80, but surgeons evaluate patients individually and primarily on their physiologic age and demands.

    Patients can resume his/her light work after discharge from the hospital, no need for rest.

    Patients are given epidural anesthesia for surgery, and post op pain relief. They are expected to follow instruction from physiotherapist regarding muscle training.
