PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP injections is a medical treatment that involves injecting a concentrated solution of the patient’s own blood platelets, which are rich in growth factors, into a specific area of the body to promote healing and reduce pain. Platelets are a type of blood cell that helps the body form blood clots and heal injuries. PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of conditions such as tendonitis, arthritis, and sports injuries. The procedure involves drawing blood from the patient, separating the platelets from other blood cells, and then injecting the concentrated platelets into the affected area. The growth factors in the platelets can help stimulate tissue repair and reduce inflammation.
Cortisone injections are a shot of medicine that doctors give to reduce swelling and pain in a specific part of the body, like a joint or muscle. The medicine is a type of hormone that the body already makes to help control inflammation. The injection delivers a stronger dose of this hormone to the affected area, which can help relieve symptoms faster and more effectively than pills. Cortisone injections are often used to treat conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, and other problems that cause inflammation.
Many versions of viscosupplementation are available such as Singal, NeoVisc and SynVisc One. It is a procedure that involves injecting a gel-like substance into a joint to help reduce pain and improve movement. It’s usually used for people who have arthritis in their joints, which causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. The gel-like substance contains a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, which helps to cushion and lubricate the joint. The treatment can involve several injections over a few weeks or months (depending on the type of viscosupplementation used) and it can help to reduce pain and improve movement for some people. While treatment can be effective in reducing pain and improving joint function for some individuals, it is not a cure for osteoarthritis, and the effects of the treatment may wear off over time.
