Why Consider Knee Pain and PRP Injections

Traditionally, physiotherapists treated chronic osteoarthritis (OA) knee pain using cortisone injections, surgery, and physical therapy. Your blood contains vital growth factors. Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) triggers the growth of new tissues on injured areas by increasing the growth factors' concentration. The East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center applies various treatment options to relieve knee pain. We have vast experience serving patients from Saint Cloud.

What is Knee Pain and PRP Injections?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are a unique treatment which involves withdrawing blood from a patient. The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge to create a solution with a high concentration of platelets. They inject the solution back into an injured area. Platelets contain chemicals that enable your body to heal naturally. Knee pain and PRP injections are for people suffering from knee injuries and disorders.

What it can help

PRP injections are useful in treating knee osteoarthritis. A Saint Cloud doctor draws a blood sample from a patient and puts it in a centrifuge to separate blood platelets from plasma. They inject the platelet-rich fluid into an injured area to stimulate cell regeneration. They offer better results than viscosupplements and corticosteroid shots.

Why Do Chiropractors Use PRP Injections for Knee Pain?

Prolotherapy is a renowned non-surgical injection treatment. It treats mild and moderate joint injuries and osteoarthritis. Typically, it involves an injection in an injured area that triggers your body to heal naturally.

In PRP treatment, a physician injects a concentrated solution of your platelets to increase your growth factor concentration. It stimulates cartilage regeneration hence relieving knee pain. The East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center administers knee pain and PRP injections to St Cloud patients. Some patients require three treatments which are up to six weeks apart. It offers a long-term pain relief solution.

Most experienced chiropractors apply different chiropractic techniques including physical therapy and soft tissue therapy to treat persistent joint pain.
