PRP therapy is a procedure that results in treatment with one’s own blood plasma enriched with platelets. This is one of the most modern methods of treatment of joints, ligaments, bones, and tendons
How much is PRP treatment?
A small amount of the patient’s blood (20 ml) is taken from the cubital vein. Utilizing a special centrifuge, the blood is separated into layers. Plasma and platelets are extracted with a syringe, which are then injected into the pathological focus (pain point, sore joint, injury site, etc.). Through concentrated biologically active plasma factors in damaged bone, cartilage, tendons, healing and recovery processes are stimulated. Clinical results show increased mobility in the joint while reducing pain.
arthrosis of the joints (the most effective therapy in the initial stages)
tendonitis, ligamentitis (inflammation of the Achilles tendon, inflammation of the patellar ligament and other ligaments and tendons of various joints)
periarthritis of various joints
epicondylitis (“tennis elbow”, golfer’s elbow)
pain syndrome in the area of the shoulder joint (subacromial impingement, capsulitis, humeroscapular periarthritis).
plantar fasciitis (heel spur)
conditions after operations on the joints, menisci, ligaments
injuries and overload of tendons, muscles and ligaments in sports.
in the plasma obtained during the procedure there are no foreign chemicals, with the exception of anticoagulants on the walls of the syringe, which minimizes the risk of allergic reactions and side effects
autoplasma is used in many areas of medicine, used both in monotherapy and in complex treatment
autoplasma helps to reduce the time of rehabilitation after injuries and surgical interventions, increases the period of remission
blood clotting disorder
fever over 38°C
herpes, a viral infection in the acute stage
the use of heparin drugs, earlier than a day before the use of PRP
The course of treatment includes from 3 to 5 sessions. The doctor will accurately determine the number of PRP treatments after the consultation.
For 2 days, limit the intake of fatty foods and alcohol, and refrain from smoking.
2 weeks before the procedure, stop the use of hormonal drugs.
It is desirable to have with you the results of a general blood test with the determination of platelets (10-14 days old);
5 hours before the procedure, do not eat, drink only water;
Stop taking aspirin, NSAIDs, anticoagulants one day before the procedure.
Before the procedure, it is good to rest and sleep, avoid stressful loads.
We do not recommend immediately after a treatment session to go to the sauna, bath or solarium.
The use of human blood preparations began in the first half of the 20th century, when, in order to increase immunity and reduce the recovery period after extensive operations or severe, prolonged illnesses, the patient was injected intramuscularly from two to 10 ml (according to the scheme) of his own fresh blood taken from the cubital vein. This treatment was called “autohemotherapy”.
Now platelet-rich plasma has almost completely replaced autohemotherapy. The procedure has a number of advantages that make it unique:
The drug contains a person’s own proteins, therefore it does not cause rejection: there is no allergy to it, as to foreign biological preparations (for example, vaccines), and other immune reactions
It is always available and equally effective, so therapy can be extended if necessary or repeated after a certain time.
The method is the most natural, since plasma, unlike medicines, is not integrated into metabolic processes from the outside, but only stimulates the normal functioning of the body, enhancing and accelerating those processes that are already taking place in the body all the time.
Full hardware equipment that allows not only to produce an enriched plasma preparation, but also to quickly carry out resuscitation in emergency cases
Extensive experience in the use of this method in patients of different ages
Experienced and attentive doctors, high level of service
Possibility to carry out preliminary diagnostics, consultation and procedure in the same place
Convenient branch location
