|Last year I had a torn meniscus and when the doc fixed it, he later told me that I have arthritis. He also said that I have bone on bone. I was told about this PRP treatment and was wondering if that would help with the problem? And is it covered by insurance? And where to get the shot done? I have trouble with stairs and that is part of my job doing stairs, if this continues I will not be able to do my job down the road. Any help sure would be great.|
|There have been recent studies to show that PRP may provide sympomatic relief for grade 2 or 3 knee OA. It is unknown whether it would work for grade 4 as you describe. It is usually not covered by insurance but this varies by state and insurance carrier.|
