6 comments on “PRP Injections for Knee Osteoarthritis

  • When you get PRP in knees how long do you need to stop anti inflammatories?????

    • Long as possible.. few weeks. Unless you are on Aspirin as directed by your Cardiologist or Primary care — in those instances it may not be safe to stop it.

  • Are PRP injections also being used for shoulder inflammation and arthritic conditions

  • I had this done in Aust under stem cell and the cost was $8000. It did work really well for 18 months and I think I may have to go back again as the pain has returned although it’s not too bad at the moment. I don’t have any cartilage, snapped crucial liagment and the Lars liagment they put in as completely toon as well. To have the stem cell done here you have to go to hospital
