Plasmolifting PRP Tubes
Effectiveness in arthrosis.
When to wait for the result depends on the purposes of PRP application and indications for treatment. In any case, it does not develop instantly. PRP is not an analgesic drug. Platelet-rich plasma only enhances tissue regeneration, and this process takes quite a long time.
With arthrosis of the knee joint, the maximum effect develops 3-6 months after the start of treatment. Only some patients report a decrease in pain after the first injection. For the rest, the first results are achieved within a month from the start of therapy.
Our website offers, among other things, the so-called PRP-Tubes for the production of platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
In comparative studies, PRP shows much better results than intra-articular administration of glucocorticoids. These differences are especially noticeable in gonarthrosis of the 3rd degree. Pain syndrome in patients with this method of treatment is less pronounced. In addition, PRP has a more favorable effect on cartilage – plasma stimulates its regeneration, while glucocorticoids, on the contrary, have a chondrotoxic effect.
According to the data, 80% of people were satisfied with the results of the treatment after a series of injections of platelet-rich plasma for osteochondrosis. The results were evaluated after 5 weeks. Another study showed that the results of treatment were evaluated as positive by 67.3% of patients six months after PRP therapy for arthrosis of the knee joint. In the control group, this indicator was only 4.3%.
Another study calculated the average amount of time that passes from the moment of the first injection to the therapeutic result. As such, patients considered a decrease in clinical symptoms. This period was 17.63 days.
It should be noted that PRP has two main effects: anti-inflammatory and reparative. When interviewing patients, only a short-term symptomatic effect is taken into account. It develops faster after the introduction of platelet-rich plasma, but it also goes away faster after the completion of the course of therapy. The first results of treatment are due to hyperplasia of the synovial membrane and modulation of cytokine levels in the articular cavity.
