Non-Surgically Repairing Knee Injuries With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Knee damage and injury severely disrupts a person’s lifestyle and if one is involved in sports or exercises, will greatly hinder there ability to participate in these activities. After an ACL, LCL, or MCL tear, many doctors first recommend surgery. Knee surgery is both invasive and risky and using non-surgical Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, it is possible to heal knee injuries without the use of surgery.
While there is a high success rate, this treatment cannot guarantee your full recovery but at the same time, offers a great chance to accelerate the repair of the injury and afterwards, only physical therapy may be needed to complete the healing process. In this way, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is being used as a safe and effective alternative to knee surgery.
PRP is being used through professional sports as well. Famous athletes like Kobe Bryant, Matt Forte, Tiger Woods, Victor Cruz and many more have used PRP Therapy to help them recover from an injury and highly praise this treatment technique.
PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood. The platelet of PRP are found in the blood and are healing cells used by the body. The platelets are made into PRP and PRP contains over 30 growth factors to actively repair tissue and blood vessel damage.
Dr. Benjamin Bieber has treated patients with ACL, LCL, and MCL tears with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and has had great success helping his patients significantly relieve pain, improve mobility, and accelerate recovery. Often times, during a traumatic injury such as a ligament tear, there aren’t enough healing properties in the body to provide a full repair.
This is why surgery is recommended to finish off the repair. Unfortunately, surgery is extremely invasive. PRP offers a non-surgical solution to boost the body’s ability to heal itself using the body’s own properties. In this way, this treatment is a homeopathic remedy for a advanced injury. Importantly, this is a great treatment to try before undergoing surgery. If it doesn’t, than surgery is always an option but it is better to treat something without surgery if you can.
Dr. Bieber also applies Stem Cell Therapy, which, in combination with PRP Therapy, is a more potent and powerful combination to heal traumatic knee injuries. In other words, Dr. Bieber has multiple natural treatments that serve as effective and safe alternative to surgery and can help you repair your knee.
