How PRP is helpful in relieving knee pain?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that is done for treating various conditions.

During PRP treatment, PRP is created from a sample of your own blood that eliminates the risks related with allergic reaction. At the point when PRP is injected by pain physicians in Kondapur into an injury site, similar to a damaged knee joint, tiny proteins known as growth factors trigger natural healing responses in restoring the damaged knee joint tissue.
