PRP for Joint Injections

Your body has an innate ability to heal itself. Some of these processes, such as the stimulation of cellular repair, can be greatly enhanced with modern regenerative medicine. The use of PRP gives people an opportunity to restore healthy function to joints and reduce the need to undergo surgery or other invasive procedures.

What is PRP?

PRP is “platelet rich plasma,” a natural blood product that can stimulate the grow styledth and healing of injured tissues. PRP is derived from your own blood. It is called platelet rich plasma as the blood platelets are concentrated in the product. Platelets have an abundance of the natural grow styledth factors found in the body that stimulate healing and regeneration.

Joint injections with platelet rich plasma is performed by first taking a blood sample, just as you would in a blood test. The sample is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. The PRP is then carefully and accurately injected into the damaged joint. The PRP injections work over time, stimulating natural healing to painful or damaged joints. PRP has been used in the medical field for wound healing for many years and is an effective treatment to aid in the regeneration and health of damaged joints.

What is plasma?

Our blood cells travel rapidly through the body, including white blood cells and platelets. The blood plasma is the liquid medium in which they travel, providing the oxygen, immunity, and proteins necessary for repair and healing.

What are platelets?

The plasma is rich in platelets, tiny blood cells that perform specialized functions for the body, including blood clotting, warding off diseases, and tissue regeneration. After an injury, chemical signals are sent that cause the platelets to accumulate in the injured area. The platelets will then form a clot to block the injury or ruptured area and stop bleeding. The platelets also contain grow styledth factors, which stimulate the regrow styledth and regeneration of various types of tissues, such as those found in blood vessels, muscles, cartilage, and tendons. These grow styledth factors are the key to the results that can be achieved with PRP injections for joint healing.

How does PRP for joint injections work?

PRP for joint injections is performed by:

  • Taking a small blood sample from which the platelet-rich plasma is derived
  • Using ultrasound if necessary to determine the exact location of a tear or injury to a joint
  • Injecting the PRP into the damaged area with the assistance of ultrasound when needed

The PRP then takes effect by sending signals to the body to initiate regeneration of the damaged tissue of the joint. This could be in a torn ligament, tendon, or damaged cartilage. Joint cartilage has deteriorated from arthritis can often have that deterioration slowed with injections of the grow styledth factors in platelets.

The injured area is stimulated to regenerate by the grow styledth factors, healing and repairing the area naturally. Additional benefits include reducing inflammation and stimulating increased lubrication of the joint. The extent of the damage plays a large role in how effective PRP will be as a treatment option, which can be discussed with our team at Angel Longevity.

Is PRP for joints an effective option over surgery?

PRP has been used quite extensively in the treatment of osteoarthritis, particularly for damaged knee joints. The degree of results on patients varies based on:

  • The extent of the injury or advancement of arthritis
  • Your body’s natural healing capacity and response to treatment

In the early stages of arthritis and for minor injuries to joints, or their cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, PRP has proven to be very effective. Some conditions, due to their severity, may not respond to the PRP injections as well as others. The first step is an assessment of your condition, so the most effective treatment can be applied in your case.

PRP for Joint Injections — Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for PRP to work?

It can take between two weeks to three months to achieve the improvement after treatment with PRP.

Can PRP regenerate cartilage?

It is theorized that PRP can regenerate cartilage and there is some evidence to suggest that as many people suffering from osteoarthritis have had the deterioration of their cartilage slowed or halted through the use of PRP.

Can PRP help arthritis?

PRP has been shown to help arthritis in many people, by reducing inflammation, increasing lubrication in the joint and potentially stimulating the healing or re-grow styledth of cartilage.

How painful is a PRP injection?

This depends on the area receiving the injection and your own pain tolerance. Many people find the injections to only involve a mild level of discomfort.

How long do PRP joint injections last?

This is another factor that is unique to you, as a patient. PRP is taken from your own body, so therefore it is a unique treatment and everyone’s response will be different. With that in consideration as well as varying severity of conditions that are treated, the effects of the injection will have varying longevity. Some people may require treatments with PRP more frequently than others to experience relief from symptoms, and some may achieve a great deal of relief with a single treatment.

Covid19 and Your Immune System – A special message from Our Founder, Dr. Anju Mathur

Dear Patients and Friends,

Update March, 22nd:

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur

Ingredients:

  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.

Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
