Hi to all.
Has anybody tried any of the various therapy options using PRP therapy or for that matter stem cell therapy. I am given to understand that it is quite the new thing in Australia where they extract and use your own cells.
Regards

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your post to Helplines. We cannot endorse commercial processes or products so cannot comment on a particular branded product.

    There is a lot of research activity around stem cell treatments, so if you are interested you might want to keep an eye on the news stories. Particularly Arthritis Research UK's news. Here's a recent story from them about stem cell work (though not the same kind that you are enquiring about).

    If you'd like some support or general information about self managing arthritis, do call our free phone (0808 800 4050) or come back to us here.

    Kind regards

    Guy (Helplines)
