What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) & Ostenil?
There is now considerable medical evidence to suggest that combined PRP and Ostenil injections are far more effective at reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis than corticosteroid, PRP or Ostenil delivered as a single treatment option. This advanced combination treatment can reduce pain better, improve function and also last much longer.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an advanced regenerative medical treatment, which utilises your own blood plasma. Plasma contains a high concentration of platelets. Platelets contain cytokines (the body’s natural chemical messengers) and numerous natural growth factors, which stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
PRP utilises the body’s natural healing processes to regenerate and repair, bone, tendon, muscle, ligament, cartilage and other soft tissue conditions. PRP therapy can be used as a non-surgical treatment for osteoarthritis, for example; in the knee.
We believe that this is the most effective non-surgical treatment for Arthritis of the knee available.
