Within the range of therapeutic possibilities for these disorders, we find: manual therapy with physiotherapy and osteopathy, acupuncture, hygienic-dietary measures, medications, ozone therapy, rhizolysis, kyphoplasty, dynamic fixations, nucleolysis and nucleoplasty, percutaneous or minimally invasive fixation, spinal cord decompression, arthrodesis or fusion.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Platelet Rich Plasma is an autologous biological material, that is, it is obtained from the patient's own blood, taking a sample through a venous puncture, which is later centrifuged to separate the different components (white and red blood cells, platelets, plasma ). A portion of the spin contains platelet-rich plasma, which are the cells involved in clotting. They have a large number of substances called growth factors that promote cell migration and division.
These factors have the potential to stimulate the reparative response of damaged tissues, as for example occurs in tendinosis, in which this procedure is highly indicated. In recent years, the potential benefit of PRP in the treatment of chronic and acute injuries to the musculoskeletal system (tendons, ligaments, and muscles) has been recognized.
PRP, being autologous, has a minimal risk of causing immune reactions or transmission of infectious or contagious diseases. This treatment does not require hospitalization or anesthesia and the estimated time per session does not usually exceed 30 minutes.
