Arthritis makes life a daily struggle for tens of millions of people in America. Conventional medical has no way of reversing arthritis. The best they can do is alleviate the symptoms of pain, stiffness, and loss of the full range of motion. But what if the body could actually reduce the inflammation and reduce the level of pain without drugs? What if the body knew how to help correct deterioration of cartilage and joints?
Actually, the body may experience significant progress concerning arthritis when given the right support. At Physical Medicine of Oklahoma, we treat arthritis patients from all over the greater Oklahoma City area. We have multiple methods of providing support and encouragement to the natural healing powers of a body with arthritis.
While every person’s body and situation vary, here are the different pain relief treatment methods we may choose for a person with arthritis.
- Chiropractic care to reduce the stress on joints
- Physiotherapy to improve joint mobility and the suppleness of muscles
- Nutrition to help activate the body’s own ability to fight inflammation
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to help rejuvenate joints and potentially heal cartilage and reduce inflammation
The Remarkable Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Advancements in medical science have resulted in a type of advanced treatment option that we can offer patients with arthritis that may help reduce the inflammation. It involves the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This treatment gives the body what it needs to focus on intensive healing right in the area of injury or pain.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment concentrates the most active healing elements of the patient’s own blood — tiny cells called platelets — and then returns this rich concentration to the affected joint or tissues. Platelets are activated by the body’s defenses when there is an injury or inflammation, so when an area of the body receives this concentration of these healing cells, they can be used to focus on restoring cartilage, rebuilding tendons or ligaments, and recovering the suppleness and vigor of youth.
