Why untreated knee and hip arthritis is linked to insomnia

It is natural to think that joint pain would keep you awake at night, and this certainly is considered a contributing factor as to why at least half of people suffering with osteoarthritis (OA) don’t sleep well. Research however also shows that the two conditions could in fact co-exist, with the quality of sleep actually affecting the symptoms of OA the next day by changing the way your body processes pain.

PRP therapy for knee arthritis – is it an effective treatment?

Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is an emerging treatment for osteoarthritis, most commonly used for arthritis of the knee, but it can be effective on other joints too. The therapy works on using the natural healing properties of your own blood to treat damaged tissue, and whilst it is not considered a mainstream treatment yet, it is showing promising results in reducing symptoms of this joint disease.
