What is the recovery like after knee injections?
Steroid and regenerative injections for the knee require little or recovery time. There may be some soreness at the injection site, which usually resolves on its own within a few days. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen or aspirin, after regenerative treatments, as they can block the intended healing response.
What can I expect with PRP knee injections in Houston, Texas?
Most knee injection treatments require a single injection. This is true for steroids, PRP, and BMAC or stem cell injections. In contrast, prolotherapy may require 15 to 20 injections into the knee joint and surrounding tissue. If you have PRP injections to treat knee pain, a small amount of your blood will be drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the red and white blood cells before the injection is performed. Before BMAC treatment, we remove a small amount of your bone marrow and spin it in a centrifuge to create a concentrate that is injected into the affected area.
