PRP Therapy for Knee Pain

Affecting individuals of all ages, knee pain is a common complaint and may be the result of a ligament or meniscal injury, mechanical problems within the knee, tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis or other type of degenerative knee condition. Even so, when individuals experience pain, including swelling, stiffness and instability of the knee, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-traditional, yet effective technique to reduce pain and improve mobility by using a patient’s own blood platelets.

Under the theory that injecting growth factors from blood into a damaged area will cause new tissues to form, PRP treatment begins by extracting a small sample of a patient’s blood. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge where it is separated into red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. The platelet rich plasma is ultimately re-injected into the area of pain or injury to accelerate healing. Proteins and growth factors within the PRP call to attention the body’s natural healing mechanisms, which significantly reduce pain and amplifies the formation of regenerative cells.

Stem Cell Treatments for Knee Pain Relief

Conventional options for treating knee pain rely upon activity modification, pain relievers, steroid injections, arthroscopic surgery or perhaps total knee joint replacement. However, regenerative therapies emphasize the power of the body’s own stem cells to heal and repair damaged and diseased tissues, joints, ligaments and tendons.

Adult stem cells have the ability to differentiate themselves into other cells. Yet, age and the severity of an injury affect the number of stem cells that “report” to an area of damage. To combat this concern, stem cells are extracted from specific areas of the body (bone marrow, fat tissues or blood), so they can be isolated and re-introduced in high quantities to the exact areas of pain and injury.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Knee pain, injuries and degenerative conditions involve a complex structure of bone, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and blood vessels. In addition, age and lifestyle play a role in the severity of knee damage and pain. Even so, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections remain a safe and effective alternative for intensifying the body’s healing and reparative mechanisms.

Specifically, meniscus tear repair has responded quickly to the presence of PRP when injected into the injury site, which speaks to the efficacy of platelet rich plasma in treating conditions that would have previously required more invasive means.

At Modern Aesthetica in Santa Monica, Dr. Daniel Moghadam believes that unlike steroids and traditional painkillers that only help to soothe pain temporarily, PRP therapy addresses the root of the problem for a full and complete recovery and enhanced mobility. Taking an individualized approach, Dr. Moghadam administers PRP treatments as part of a commitment to restorative care that optimizes health and wellness.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!

I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!

Michael D.

Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.

I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.

I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!

Stacey R.

I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
