A number of peer-reviewed studies have shown that PRP is often powerfully effective with healing various injuries. Just how effective it is depends on the area being treated and the patient’s overall health. Whether the injury was caused by an accident or trauma (acute) or has developed over time (chronic) also plays a factor in the effectiveness of Platelet Rich Plasma injections. Some of the conditions that have shown great improvement after being treated using Platelet Rich Plasma injection include:
- Knee Arthritis
- Acute Ligament and Muscle Injuries
- Chronic Tendon Injuries
Platelet Rich Plasma injections have been known to beat out the competitive techniques, such as hyaluronic acid in several tests. Other remedies that have shown promise with healing injuries and after surgery include bone marrow stem cell injections and, of course, traditional orthopedic surgery.
