Osteoarthritis is the most common form of the degenerative joint disease that features the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma) is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes the healing properties of platelets from your own blood to help jumpstart the healing process and oftentimes delivering profound pain relief. Equinox Integrative Wellness Center is the most reliable and leading name in providing the effective PRP For Osteoarthritis.
Symptoms Of Osteoarthritis!
Osteoarthritis is found most frequently in aged people, although it can occur at any age. It most commonly affects joints in the knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, ankles, and hands. These symptoms often begin with joint stiffness and discomfort and can be alleviated with periods of rest. The tissue surrounding the joint can become increasingly inflamed, and eventually lose some or almost all range of motion without the treatment.

How Does Platelets Rich Plasma For Osteoarthritis Work?
Step 1. Collect Blood- It’s the primary stage of PRP therapy, in which 30-60ml blood is drawn from the patient’s arm for the further treatment.
Step 2. Separate The Platelets- The blood collected in the initial step of therapy is then positioned in a centrifuge which revolves and separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components.
Step 3. Extract Platelet-Rich Plasma- After separating the platelets, there are platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells. 3-6ml platelet-rich plasma is extracted for the further processing.
Step 4. PRP Injection For The Injured Areas- During the last phase of the treatment we increase the growth factors up to eight times which promotes temporary relief and stops inflammation by using the concentrated platelets.
