Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is increasingly being applied to treat arthritis in patients. With the surge in younger people developing arthritis from sports-related injuries, there comes a gap between physical therapy and invasive surgery.
Patients are drawn to a minimally invasive procedure such as PRP because of its natural properties and known effectiveness in professional athletes. However, it’s important to note that there is a wide variety of various PRP preparations across the globe lacking a standardized approach. Also, some clinics that do not focus on PRP but offer it as a small aspect of their practice, may not have the necessary training and protocols.
Given these variabilities with a lack of standardization, results can vary. It’s important to see experienced providers that have published research or dedication of a significant aspect of their practice to providing PRP and other cell therapies with patient outcomes data collection.
