MESQUITE, TX, September 04, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Chronic knee pain is categorized by long-term pain, inflammation, and sensitivity in one or both of an individual's knees.
It is most often brought on by physical conditions or diseases such as:
Unfortunately, unlike temporary knee pain (most often from an injury), chronic knee pain rarely goes away without treatment and can even worsen over time, leaving pain sufferers discouraged. While many patients are lead in the direction of knee replacement surgery, there are other options that should be considered that do not involve highly invasive surgeries, pain medications, and long recovery periods.
At Mesquite Chiropractic & Injury, we specialize in platelet-rich plasma injections to remediate chronic knee pain and get our patients back to living mobile, enjoyable, pain-free lives. With this treatment, one of our medical professionals will draw a small blood sample to isolate the plasma—a substance highly rich in curative properties. When PRP is injected into the knee, it kickstarts the body's own natural healing ability.
What to Expect
The process will typically only take a few hours from beginning to end, with most patients able to leave the clinic shortly thereafter. Although it is important to remember that everyone heals at different rates, many patients have experienced relief within a few weeks after injection, with pain and inflammation decreasing continuously over the span of a few months. For many, PRP can last for years and can even facilitate permanent repair.
Even better, these advanced biological treatments, such as PRP, remove the complications and painful recovery times that accompany knee replacement surgeries. Other than chronic knee pain, PRP is suitable for treating other common knee conditions as well, including runner's knee, tendonitis, and water on the knee.
