Orthopedics

The revolutionary method of pain release, tendon, muscle and bone regeneration

Platelet-rich plasma is the basic component of the natural defense and regeneration of the body in all injuries. It is a great potential for tissue repair during the healing process, thanks to the so-called growth factors that particularly affect the reconstruction of muscles and tendons. Thanks to this, some orthopedic conditions can be cured without operating.

Thanks to the application of PRP, patients with orthopedic issues may avoid long convalescence, pain, and discomfort. PRP is great for treating such conditions that required long-term use of drugs, physical therapy and even surgery, like sprains of the knee, knee bending, chronic tendon injuries and many more. Musculoskeletal injuries are the most common cause of severe, chronic pain and physical disability and account for the majority of all sport-related injuries.

The areas of PRP treatments and recommendations:

tennis elbow

golfer’s elbow

heel spurs

knee jumper (inflammation of the ligament of the right patella)

runner’s knee

injuries / damage to the tendons, muscles and ligaments,

degenerative changes of the Achilles tendon

injuries and overload changes

numerous diseases and injuries of the joints – hip, knee, elbow, etc.

in fractures and non-union after fractures (so-called false joints)

in order to accelerate the healing process of soft tissues – healing wounds

osteoarthritis

tendonitis of the foot

blepharitis of the greater trochanter

tendinopatie of the rotator cuff of the shoulder, the scapulo-cone

muscleregeneration

Therapy supporting treatment:

loss of joint cartilage: post-traumatic and degenerative

after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), meniscus sewing, repair of joint cartilage

bone dysfunction

hard to heal wounds, sores

postoperative: after tendon repair eg Achilles

Platelet-rich plasma accelerates the healing process of soft tissues stimulates the reconstruction of muscles, tendons, and joints. PRP is injected into damaged area or tissue. For example, in the case of chronic Achilles tendonitis. The mixture of PRP and the local anesthetic can be injected directly into the diseased tissue. Over the next few days, the patient may experience pain in the area around the injection, which, however, over time pass and the patient begins to feel the beneficial effect of treatment.
