PRP or platelet therapy or plasma therapy
A new way of treating diseases is by removing active cells that participate in the repair of tissue problems and injecting them into the joint at a high concentration, controlled and appropriate for the same problem.
Applications of PRP PRP in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation:
Accelerate healing of bone fractures or cartilage lesions such as arthritis.
Cruciate ligament repair (subject to partial rupture) and knee meniscus injury.
Helps repair partial rupture and chronic damage to the shoulder and Achilles tendons
Reduce elbow muscle inflammation (so-called “tennis elbow” or “tennis elbow”) reduce inflammation of the shoulder tendons etc. ……
In some diseases of the motor system, one of the therapeutic methods is to inject drugs into the joint or around the patient’s tissues, also called PRP therapy. Injections into the motor tissues are always performed by a specialist physician. The purpose of these injections is often to reduce joint inflammation, thereby reducing pain and swelling.
Intra-tissue injection is a delicate practice and requires skill. If the drug is not injected in the right place, it will not have a beneficial effect. According to the principles of medical science, in many cases arthritis or soft tissue injection is not the first step in treating the patient. Rather, simpler methods are used and, if unsuccessful, are treated with arthritis or PR therapy.
