PROLOTHERAPY and PRP
Prolotherapy is the general name for local injection methods applied to the areas where the ligaments attach to the bone. Using special needle tips, solutions specific to the disease are applied to tissue that is damaged or whose function is impaired. Stem cell and growth factors are stimulated at the injection site and tissue repair is aimed. The prepared solutions may be a nutrient-like mixture that creates a special stimulus, as well as PRP or CGF sera prepared by centrifugation from the person’s own blood. In the treatment of common musculoskeletal pain, such as herniated disc, neck hernia, knee calcification, meniscus tears and shoulder injuries; It is a treatment method that can be successful by providing permanent healing of the main damage causing pain. Rest, drug therapy, is an important healing option that must be evaluated before surgery in acute and chronic pain that does not pass with physical therapy.
