Services / Traitement de plasma riche en plaquettes (PRP)
Do you suffer from discogenic, facet back pain, or from a tendinopathy that resists to standard treatments (physiotherapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, local cortisone injection)? Are you considering an alternative treatment to surgery? Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) regeneration and repair therapy could be an option for you.
People suffering from sports injury or other
Do you suffer from tendon, ligament or muscle damage that can’t be fixed by conventional treatments? For any tendinopathy or other lesion resistant to conventional treatments (anti-inflammatory drugs, physiotherapy, cortisone injection, etc.), treatment with PRP at the pain site can help healing and reduce recovery time. This treatment is also increasingly recommended shortly after an injury, especially for people looking for effective treatments without cortisone.
People with osteoarthritis or chronic pain
Do you suffer from osteoarthritis or joint pain and want to avoid chronicity? PRP is the treatment of choice to accelerate the recovery process and stimulate the healing of joints, notably those affected by osteoarthritis.
People with a diagnosis of discogenic low back pain or facet back pain
Have you been diagnosed with discogenic or facet back pain? Our platelet-rich plasma treatment can help you. PRP is infiltrated as a regeneration and repair treatment for damaged discs or facets before considering surgery or any other type of treatment.
What is the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is a procedure that consists in infiltrating the affected joints, tendons, nerves or discs with a part of the patient’s own blood plasma. PRP is obtained by taking a blood sample from the patient. The sample is then placed in a device that separates its different components. The platelet-rich layer is collected and used for the injection later on. The treatment enables the regeneration and repair of damaged connective tissues.
What are the Steps of a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Platelets are found in everyone’s blood. Their main function is the clotting of the blood but they also contain growth factors that are effective in speeding up the recovery process and stimulating the healing of various injured connective tissues. The first step of PRP treatment is to take a blood sample from the patient in order to collect the platelets.
The extraction of PRP
During the sampling, the blood is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. We are therefore able to keep only the plasma, which contains a large quantity of platelets and of growth factors. These are efficient in speeding up the healing process of the injured connective tissues.
