PRP for Osteoarthritis
The search for ways to improve osteoarthritis pain continues. I believe eventually we may figure out the proper use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to decrease pain. HERE is a study evaluating different kinds of PRP preparations. It appears PRP containing fewer white blood cells works better when injected into joints than injections with higher concentrations of white blood cells.
