As we have already noted, the effect after the procedure will last about a year or more. It depends on the rate of the patient's metabolic reactions. The instant result will also not take long to wait. The inflammation that persists in the joint will begin to fade within a few hours after the plasma therapy. At the same time, the pain will disappear. After a few days, the patient will begin to notice significantly increased mobility in the joint, the absence of discomfort when moving.
In different cases, different frequency of plasmolifting courses is recommended. For example, for osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis, doctors recommend PRP therapy at least 2 times a year with the support of drug therapy and physiotherapeutic methods of treatment. Adhering to such a scheme, it is possible to significantly postpone the timing of surgical intervention. Or even completely abandon surgical methods of treatment.
Among other things, in the case of arthrosis and osteochondrosis, a course of PRP therapy of the joint can significantly reduce the drug load on the liver and kidneys. And this often causes complications in patients with diseases of the musculoskeletal system. In addition, plasmolifting affects the cause of pain, and does not eliminate symptoms, as happens with the widespread use of NSAIDs. And, most importantly, plasmolifting is able to start regenerative processes in tissues, and not only eliminate inflammation.
The only disadvantage of plasma therapy is the need for injections into the joint cavity. For some patients, this may seem somewhat repulsive. However, the benefits of this procedure, its high efficiency, zero risks and the possibility of avoiding global surgical intervention with its help outweigh all fears.
