Joint Replacement Surgery Delayed? You Have Alternatives!

If you’re suffering from joint issues or tendon injuries, your first choice for treatment might be joint replacement surgery or even medication. While these options have their uses, they also come with risks and disadvantages, such as extensive recovery time or even medication dependency. Even worse, delaying any sort of treatment can have substantial negative impacts on your overall health. Some negatives that come along with delaying your treatment include:

  • Worsening of your condition
  • Increased stiffness of joint, limiting mobility
  • Weakening of surrounding muscles, which may never regain the same strength
  • Favouring of healthy joints due to pain, which strains the rest of the body
  • Obesity, aging, and reduced physical activity can result in more serious issues like cardiac disease, if joint conditions are not treated

Recent events make it especially challenging to receive the treatment or joint replacement surgery you need for your joint pain. However, if your surgery or treatment has been delayed, there are other options available. Kentrum Clinic offers solutions that allow you to treat your pain so you don’t have to wait and risk your condition worsening.

What Is My Alternative to Joint Replacement Surgery?

An alternative that is minimally invasive and does away with medication is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Everybody’s blood contains plasma in addition to red and white blood cells. They are important for forming blood clots. Plasma also contains growth factors, which are important for regenerative medicine in helping to regenerate and relieve your condition. By concentrating and reinserting plasma into the affected location of the body, your plasma is being transferred in great quantities to the part of the body where plasma is needed the most to start the healing process. The growth factors stimulate cell growth to allow your tissue to repair. Once repaired, your pain will fade away and you will be able to regain your normal range of movement.

Our PRP treatments are simple procedures and can take place within an outpatient clinic setting. A small amount of your blood is extracted and placed into a centrifuge, which separates and concentrates the amount of plasma. This is then reinserted into the target area.

Within a few weeks, the effects of PRP will start to be felt. You may experience a pain reduction and an increased range of motion in the treated area. PRP procedures are outpatient, which means you can simply walk out of the clinic after the therapy to allow you to recover at home.
