One of the most recent in a series of regenerative therapies offered by the clinic, PRP is a remedy to knee pain that has zero negative side effects. Cortisone shots, on the other hand, are known to negatively impact the immune system, metabolic function, blood pressure, blood sugar, as well as worsen joint and tissue degeneration.

There have been many studies on the best alternatives to high-dose cortisone injections for knee pain, and PRP stands out as a leading treatment option. The injection is made from the platelets found in the patient’s own blood.

This tissue contains growth factors known as cytokines that have a positive effect on healing muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and cartilage. Additionally, they facilitate the reduction of knee joint pain and inflammation.

The injections must be administered by a trained professional such as Dr. Silva, who is uniquely qualified to do so for conditions of the spine and peripheral joints such as knees. He is the only doctor in the Pacific Northwest that is fellowship-trained in Interventional Orthopedics.

Anyone looking to avoid knee replacement surgery, medication, and the negative effects of cortisone shots should consider PRP injections. Dr. Silva has helped countless people get back to living active, pain-free lives while maintaining optimal health and immune systems.

A satisfied patient said: “I injured my knee 2 years ago. Before that I was pretty active with hiking, running, playing soccer, and playing with my kids. After the injury, the pain made the simplest activities very difficult. Arthroscopic surgery didn’t help and after 4 opinions from ‘conventional’ orthopedists, I was left feeling that the rest of my life would be spent managing pain and watching people do the things I loved. Then my physical therapist suggested I see Dr. Silva. I had PRP about 2 months ago and my life has changed. I am 100% pain-free for everyday activities and the things that are still challenging are getting better. Dr. Silva gave me my life back, and most importantly, he gave me the hope that keeps me motivated to keep working to get stronger. I would recommend Dr. Silva to anyone.
