Combining Hyaluronic Acid Treatment with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment for Osteoarthritis

Here at Dynamic Osteopaths in Solihull we are performing the treatment of platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment in combination with Hyaluronic Acid (HA).

It is thought that Hyaluronic Acid (HA) therapy may be more effective when supplemented with platelet-rich plasma treatment rather than alone in treating primary osteoarthritis, according to a study to be presented at the 2018 World Congress on Pain, in September 2018. In this clinical trial, medical scientists looked to establish whether a combination of platelet-rich plasma and hyaluronic acid therapy would have synergistic effects for the treatment of primary knee osteoarthritis. Both therapies have been used separately to improve cartilage health and modulate inflammation. A total of 74 patients with knee osteoarthritis received platelet-rich plasma alone or in combination with hyaluronic acid. They were assessed 1 week and 1 and 3 months after treatment for pain intensity and functional improvement. It was concluded that - Intra articular treatment of platelet-rich plasma in combination with hyaluronic acid therapy provides better pain relief and improvement of functional status than platelet-rich plasma therapy alone in primary knee osteoarthritis.
