Joint Pain and Plasma Injection
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that harnesses the body’s ability to heal itself using joint plasma injections.
Dr Joshua Huang provides plasma injections at Doctors On Clyde.
Platelet-rich plasma has been used to treat:
- chronic pain conditions
- Injuries throughout the body including the knees, elbows, shoulders and other joints
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- sprains and strains
From Medical News Today:
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is built on the notion that these growth factors can support healing. The process, which uses the person’s own blood, involves separating the blood cells from the plasma, the liquid part of the blood. The process increases the number of platelets, which are then put back into the plasma.
This plasma now contains a higher than usual concentration of platelets, which a doctor can inject into an area damaged by disease and injury. Research has shown that platelet-rich plasma can help with knee pain, and may be particularly helpful for those who have had no success with other treatments.
