PLASMA RICH IN PROTEIN
The aim of using these therapies is to achieve a fast and efficient repair of damage taken on our tissues. Sometimes this restoration deliver us from a surgery and other times in the surgery help us to accelerate and enhance to repair mechanisms and integrate the patient as soon as possible to normal life.
Platelets are rich carriers of growth factors (proteins which regulate the processes of tissue repair and growth and cellular differentiation, which are essential for tissue repair). They release these factors through a small granules inside and they initiate series of processes that lead to healing.
This type of treatment is indicated in multiple indications…fractures, wounds, ulcers, tendon ruptures, muscle injuries, chronic tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, epicondylitis, degenerative joint injuries. There are multiple scientific publications in which it is recognized that the fc stimulate and accelerate the processes which finish with the healing of the injury. They also have the ability of reversing the inflammatory and painful phenomenons, they accelerate healing and repair of muscle tissue preventing future breakage, they help to increase the fracture healing, they help to repair the mechanism of inflammation associated with arthritis that causes pain and joint effusion.
This therapy is also used in other medical specialities, such as dermatology, aesthetic medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology…getting good results.
We use our own plasma (biological gold) to regenerate and repair our injury.
Always by medical diagnosis and supported by other joint therapies depending on each injury.
The process of obtaining is through a blood extraction of a similar patient to an analytic and the amount will depend on the locations to infiltrate.
In the caseoftrauma:
They require three or more injections according lesion, with a rest interval of about one or two weeks between them. After PRP infiltration, the patient can lead a normal life by keeping a rest of 24 to 48 hours of sport or heavy exertion, recommendation depends on the injury and the guidelines instructed by the doctor, this will be accompanied by a rehabilitation treatment because the two therapies are complementary between them.
For other specialities, the protocol is usually similar but each professional indicates the therapeutic combinations and guidelines to follow.
The procedure is painless and do not require anesthesia except in exceptional circumstances where the injury or the treatment area require it.
