How Orthogen P helps you to avoid surgery for knee arthritis?

Osteoarthritis is the common form of arthritis, which occurs when the cartilage that protects the bones wear away. This would make the bones rub together, which will cause severe pain, swelling, difficult to move, and sometimes it could form into bone spurs. Usually, people aged above the 40s would develop osteoarthritis. Women are more likely to develop osteoarthritis as compared to men.

There are various reasons which cause knee arthritis, such as:

  • Age
  • Excess weight
  • Sports
  • Hereditary
  • Repeated stress injuries 


Notice the signs before it gets severe, and those include: 

  • Swelling
  • Pain increases with physical movements or activities
  • Knees would be stiff
  • Feeling of warmth in the joint 

Medical care

The main aim is to reduce knee pain and get the mobility back. Doctors would suggest few home therapies and might have to undergo surgery if it gets worse. Before the surgery, one could always try the following: 

  • Reduce weight
  • Physical activity
  • Keep ice packs to reduce swelling
  • Wear a knee brace
  • Pain relievers
  • Injections
  • Physical therapies 

Knee surgery will be performed during severe circumstances when all the other treatments fail.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is one of the effective treatments for osteoarthritis. Plasma helps the blood to clot when there is a wound or a cut. It contains proteins that promote the growth of new cells. PRP has been produced by separating plasma from the blood of the patients and then concentrating it. Injecting PRP into the damaged cells will help the body to grow new cells and promote the healing of damaged cells.
