Autologous blood therapy
Injuries to muscles, tendons, ligaments and bony structures as well as osteoarthritis can be effectively treated with the help of so-called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
Studies have shown that the growth factors contained in human blood can positively influence various healing processes. These findings are used in the application of this autologous blood therapy to achieve improvement in terms of pain progression and mobility.
Hyaluronic acid therapy is an alternative to autologous blood therapy for osteoarthritis.
Procedure of the autohaemotherapy
After taking a small amount of venous blood (10ml) (usually from the arm vein), a special separation procedure (centrifugation) is performed.
Here, the part of the blood can be obtained that contains the body’s own regenerative and anti-arthritic components. The resulting endogenous solution is injected into the affected joint or around the affected tendon. A specially developed double syringe ensures sterile collection and sterile injection of the growth factors.
