Research on the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma, commonly abbreviated “PRP,” is constantly ongoing. A new compilation study on the use of PRP for knee pain from arthritis was recently published and further endorses the use of PRP and its superiority over steroid injections and hyaluronic acid for pain relief and increased functionality 6 and 12 months post injection. If you’re experiencing knee pain, contact One Neuro and schedule your evaluation today for consideration of PRP!
