What Is The Difference Between Cortisone & PRP Injection, and what is the most effective?
To simplify, cortisone is an anti-inflammatory treatment that is used to reduce inflammation. The positive with cortisone is that it is good at reducing pain, but the negatives are that it generally is only short lived and is not a good long term solution for managing pain and injury. Although relatively good at reducing pain short term, another downside is that cortisone is a steroid treatment which can have negative implications for weakening tissue health and further contributing towards tissue degradation and degeneration. PRP on the other hand is a pro-inflammatory treatment that works to simulate a repair process of damaged tissue, generally strengthen tissue health. Many clinical studies comparing cortisone and PRP are finding PRP treatment to be safer with better long term outcomes in pain reduction and improved tissue healing, along with improved function. A few recent examples below:
Here at the Dynamic Clinic, we provide both treatments. We are very proud to say we are the UK’s leading provider of advanced PRP treatment and have been providing this fantastic treatment with ongoing success for almost 10 years, providing over 13,000 treatments to date. We are hugely proud of the significant help and success this has provided to many people, literally changing lives.
Furthermore, we offer the best quality and concentration of PRP at very affordable prices. This is for two reasons, 1) we are the UK distributor for PRP iStem, which allows us to significantly reduce prices, and 2) we truly believe that that payment has to be justifiable as you are using patient’s own cells.
