The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the International Cellular Medicine Society have determined the following about joint pain:
The following has been determined about PRP joint treatments:
The first step of PRP Joint treatments is to consult with the doctor to determine if the treatment is right for you. In PRP, blood is drawn from patient’s vein and centrifuged using an advanced and efficient Emcyte centrifuge which produces 7-9 times the concentration of platelets that a normal centrifuge can produce. These platelets are combined with a small concentration of red blood cells and injected into the joint . This process can be repeated every 4 weeks. Patients may experience mild pain after injecting PRP , but this can be controlled by applying cold compresses and taking Tylenol as needed. We recommend that patients not take NSAIDs after treatments. Joint improvements can take 12 weeks, and patients may need treatment once a year to maintain the joint and to prevent degeneration.
