Your Pain Free Life is Possible with PRP + Viscosupplementation
"My advanced shoulder arthritis was causing significant pain and loss of function. My Doctor told me that I was not a surgical candidate so I thought I would have to live with the pain. Thankfully a combined PRP / HA injection changed my life. Now I'm able to do things that I never thought I would ever do again."
Combined PRP + VISCOSUPPLEMENTION
Viscosupplementation is a safe nonsurgical approach to the management of knee, hip and shoulder arthritis. Licensed for use in Canada since 1999, this gel-like substance known as hyaluronic acid (HA) is marketed under a variety of names including Durolane, Orthovisc, Synvisc and Monovisc among others.
When injected into an arthritic joint under guided ultrasound, HA acts as a joint lubricant and a shock absorber. For many clients, an HA injection results in a reduction in joint pain and an improvement in function for approximately 6-9 months. If desired, clients may repeat HA therapy every 6 months on an ongoing basis.
While the use of HA therapy alone is often effective, combined PRP and HA therapy has been shown to have an even better results. In a recent research study comparing outcomes associated with the use of HA, PRP or a combination of both, the researchers identified that combined HA and PRP therapy results in a more rapid improvement in symptoms.
Clients most likely to benefit for combined PRP and HA therapy include those with advanced osteoarthritis of the shoulder, hip and knee.
