I've done it for my knee three years ago after a injury and haven't had problems since the injections.

I always have PRP injections for any type of oral surgery and I always have outstanding results - rapid healing, less pain. I would certainly consider.

Look into Hyaluronic acid.
This is available as an oral supplement, and is also given as joint injections.

It has many many excellent reviews at iHerb.com.
Google Hyaluronic acid knees for info.


Also, try PEMF.

The PRP is from your OWN blood, right?
