Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma Shoulder, Knee and Hip Treatment
Stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies are two of the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments offered to patients today. These therapies are often used to treat shoulder, knee and hip pain as a result of arthritis, traumatic ligament injuries, meniscus tears, and other conditions such as overuse of degenerative disorders.
Benefits of Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Traditionally, if a patient has experienced a serious knee injury or suffers from pain caused by issues like arthritis or meniscus tears, they may need to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery. In some extreme cases, the patient’s doctor may even recommend total knee replacement. However, these are major surgeries which carry a number of risks. Not to mention, after these procedures, patients are required to attend regular rehabilitation as part of their recovery.
Shoulder pain can be caused by arthritis, rotator cuff tears, and other conditions. Traditional shoulder surgery can be difficult due to the complexity of the shoulder joint. Recovery can be difficult, painful and can require a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility.
Hip pain can be difficult to deal with on a daily basis. People tend to suffer from hip pain due to arthritis, common injuries, hip bursitis, and other problems related to the hip joint. Hip surgery or replacements are other options that a patient can choose from. These surgeries can be very traumatic and can be followed by months of pain and discomfort.
Stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapies can help patients minimize shoulder, knee, and hip pain and regain strength and mobility without all the downtime. In fact, most patients are able to return to activity shortly after the procedure when they feel up to it.
