Treatment with PRP
In the past, serious knee injuries have been treated with surgery, long term use of medications and physical therapy. With recent scientific breakthroughs, sufferers have advanced medical treatments available to them which include PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell therapy. PRP is a non-surgical therapy that is highly favored by orthopedic surgeons. Blood is drawn from the patient, and the platelets which contain growth factors and anti-inflammatory components are injected into the injured site. This therapy has been successfully proven to reduce recovery time, improve joint flexibility and rejuvenate damaged tissue.
Treatment with Stem Cells (Regenerative Therapy)
The use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’S) which are derived from the body’s own bone marrow or adipose tissue, is an advanced treatment used in conjunction with PRP. These cells also aid in the reduction of inflammation and rejuvenation of the injured ligamentous structures.
