For Osteoarthritis Pain: Regenerative PRP Therapy Can Help

April 28, 2022

If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis (OA), you’re not alone! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 32.5 million adults are affected by OA. Furthermore, following diabetes and dementia, osteoarthritis ranks third among rapidly rising and disabling conditions. 

While the umbrella term “arthritis” refers to over 100 rheumatic conditions affecting the joints, osteoarthritis is by far the most common form— accounting for the highest percentage of personal, societal, and economic burdens associated with the disease. 

Today, regenerative medicine offers new options in care 

For many seniors suffering from osteoarthritis, joint replacement surgery has long offered the promise of relief, restored function, and improved quality of life. Although surgery represents an excellent choice in care, today, it is not the only option. As advances in regenerative medicine evolve, a non-surgical and less risky alternative is available that can help delay, and sometimes avoid, joint replacement surgery.

At Palmetto Pain Management, our goal is to provide non-surgical, minimally invasive, and natural solutions to reduce and alleviate chronic pain at its source. Today, regenerative platelet-rich plasma (PRP), derived from a small sample of your blood, offers demonstrated safety and effectiveness for the relief of osteoarthritis symptoms in the knee, shoulder, hip, & spine.

PRP offers a completely natural approach for addressing damaged and diseased tissue. It contains a cocktail of inflammatory mediators, growth factors, and platelets that stimulate cell turnover and new cell growth and catalyze the healing/reparative response. With precise and targeted injections of PRP, our doctors can put the beneficial cellular components where they are needed most and will have the maximum therapeutic value.
