Plasmolifting PRP Practice in Orthopedics
The abbreviation PRP is derived from the English-language name of the platelet rich plasma technique, which translates as "platelet-enriched plasma". The essence of the method is that blood is taken from the patient, placed in a centrifuge and plasma is separated, which contains a high concentration of platelets. It turns out a "cocktail" rich in special biologically active substances – growth factors. It is injected into problem areas (in our case, into the intervertebral disc), and growth factors activate regeneration processes.

In fact, PRP therapy is a kind of plasmolifting. It is most popular in cosmetology. But recently it has been used with great success to treat diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The method is indicated for arthrosis, tunnel syndromes, tendinitis, dysfunction of the sacro-hip joint. The effectiveness of PRP therapy for spinal pain has also been fairly well studied.
PRP therapy has significant advantages over classical methods of treating spinal pain:
It does not just eliminate the symptoms, but affects the cause of the pathology. Growth factors contribute to the recovery and healing of the intervertebral disc.
The method helps patients who have been unsuccessfully treated with NSAIDs, blockades and physiotherapy for a long time.
After a course of treatment, a long-term effect is achieved, while painkillers act only for a relatively short time.
The method is highly safe and has a minimum of contraindications. After all, the patient's own plasma is used as a medicine. It does not have negative effects on the body, does not cause allergic reactions.
Some patients, thanks to the use of PRP therapy, manage to avoid surgical interventions on the spine.
The positive effect comes quite quickly. Usually the patient feels a noticeable improvement within 4-6 weeks.
