WHAT CAN BE TREATED WITH REGENERATIVE MEDICINE - PRP (INDICATIONS):

  • Knee osteoarthritis (gonarthrosis), hip osteoarthritis (coxarthrosis), shoulder osteoarthritis (omarthrosis), ankle and hand osteoarthritis (e.g., rhizarthrosis);

  • Joint injuries: cartilage injuries, meniscus injuries, anterior cruciate ligament or collateral ligament injuries;

  • Tendon injuries and inflammations: shoulder periarthritis, epicondylitis, epitrochleitis, knee and hand tendonitis (trigger finger, De Quervain's syndrome), Achilles tendon pain;

  • Muscle injuries: muscle strains or sprains due to sports or work-related activities;

  • Osteoarticular and myotendinous overload: for athletes and occupational overuse.

FISIOGARDA relies on the most advanced technology, which allows performing the treatment in a single administration, ALWAYS WITH THE PATIENT'S OWN BLOOD, without the need for repetitive cycles or the use of external blood sources. This is made possible thanks to the state-of-the-art machinery used, which can achieve significantly higher concentrations of active cellular components, on average three times higher compared to other machines on the market.

The single somministration and the use of the patient's own blood minimize the risks, even for patients who cannot undergo other treatments due to conditions such as diabetes or cardiac issues. In fact, regenerative medicine also finds indications in patients with multiple pathologies, advanced age, and complex home-based therapies.

The PRP treatment involves a standard blood draw, which is immediately processed in a specific machine that extracts the sought-after and biologically active component (platelet-rich plasma - PRP). The resulting liquid (a few cc) is then injected into the treatment area by the specialist using a regular injection.

The treatment is performed in a single session, and patients can attend without the need for an accompanying person. After the session, the patient can immediately resume all activities within their tolerance.

A FEW GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT REGENERATIVE MEDICINE AND PRP TREATMENT

Regenerative medicine is a rapidly evolving field that focuses on the use of advanced techniques and therapies to promote the regeneration and repair of damaged or diseased tissues. In orthopedics, a key approach used in regenerative medicine is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

PRP therapy involves extracting the patient's blood, separating the platelets, and injecting the enriched plasma into a specific area of the body that requires healing. Platelets are small cells present in the blood that contain growth factors and other essential proteins for the healing process. The primary goal of PRP therapy is to accelerate the healing process, stimulate tissue regeneration, and reduce inflammation. This therapy is often used to treat muscle, tendon, and joint injuries such as tendinitis, anterior cruciate ligament injuries, and osteoarthritis.

The indications for PRP therapy depend on the nature and severity of the tissue injury or damage. For example, PRP can be used in chronic muscle or tendon injuries that have not responded to conservative treatments such as physical therapy or corticosteroid injections.

Regenerative medicine in orthopedics, using PRP, offers new possibilities to promote the healing and regeneration of damaged tissues. It is important to note that the use of PRP in orthopedics is still under study and may not be universally accepted as a standard of care. However, this therapy can be considered as a treatment option with a very low clinical risk, allowing for the treatment of patients who cannot benefit from other methods due to comorbidities or ongoing pharmacological treatments.
