Dr. Maegan Knutson has been using Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP) injections to relieve pain in patients with chronic orthopedic injuries.
One patient, Robert from Marysville, WA, shared his experience with PRP at Lighthouse Natural Medicine and we thought we share his PRP success story.

Can you tell me about your injury?
My elbow pain was from repetitive use for many years. They were so sensitive that I couldn’t even rest my arms down on armrests.
I also have a sport injury on Right knee from 25 years ago. I then over compensation with the Left knee. Plus, my job requires me to squat and bend a lot which doesn’t help my knees either. After years of doing the same repetitive motions, it has really taken a toll on my body.
What other treatments did you try first?
I tried anti-inflammatory medications, massage and stretching as well as pain medications and creams.
Why did you choose Platelet Rich Plasma injections?
I was desperate for help but didn’t want surgery.
Did the injection hurt?
I felt a slight pinch at first then a warming sensation.
Did you experience pain afterward?
How long did it take before you started to experience relief?
Almost instantly for both joints.
How many treatments have you had so far?
