Innovative and reliable therapy for different injuries in Orthopedics
PRP is an innovative therapy that has had a greater acceptance in recent years as it is presented as a reliable option for various injuries in Orthopedics and rheumatologic diseases. This treatment consists of a concentrate of platelets, growth factors, and cellular components from the same patient, which are responsible for accelerating the natural process of repair and regeneration of damaged tissues and joints; especially muscle (tendons and ligaments), cartilage (intervertebral disc), bone, among others.
The product is obtained from a small amount of blood, which is processed according to high quality standards that allow us to concentrate between 3 and 5 times the normal amount of platelets, this growth being theoptimum for therapeutic use. Once the product is finished, the specialist applies the PRP directly on the damaged area, which in turn stimulates the tissue and promotes blood vessels formation and collagen production, encouraging the natural process of repair and regeneration of the body, and resulting in the strengthening of that area.
This treatment exhibits several qualities that make it one of the best choices against tissues damaged by wear, accidents, repeated trauma, overuse or misuse of joints, as well as for people needing to benefit from their regenerative activity. An advantage to this treatment is the safety represented by the use of elements from the same individual, which excludes any risk by some external agent. In addition, the permanent effect of the results, since the purpose of PRP is the complete regeneration of tissue and not the suppression of pain or another temporary solution.
