Common Conditions that Cause Knee Pain

Knee pain is a prevalent issue that can affect anyone at any age. The more common pains are most often caused by wear and tear from performing everyday tasks such as walking or bending down.

If you’re an athlete, injuries could be more severe such as a torn meniscus. Whatever the case may be, experiencing pain in your knees can be an annoyance and incapacitating.

  • Ligament tears
  • Inflammation
  • Joint pain
  • MCL tears
  • Knee tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Dislocation of the knee cap

How To Relieve Knee Pain Naturally

When seeking options to relieve painful knees, the first few things that may come to your mind may be prescription pain relievers or surgery. While these may work, they come with a laundry list of side effects and possible complications. Surgery is invasive and can come with a lengthy recovery period.

How to Relieve Knee Pain Naturally Lake Mary Fl

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections is a medical procedure that utilizes the platelets of your own blood, making it natural and low risk. The process begins with a blood draw that can be performed at your doctor’s visit. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge to extract the platelets.

This process creates a high concentration that is then injected directly to the knee that is experiencing pain. Platelets are effective at healing because they are rich in proteins and growth factors that are important in recovery. Concentrating these platelets increases the healing properties in order to achieve the best results.

PRP injections are a popular treatment because not only will you experience knee pain relief, but there are no risks or side effects since it uses components that your own body has created.
