As osteopaths we are trained to keep our patient’s treatments as non-surgical as possible. Our philosophy is based on preservation and prevention, alongside overall wellbeing. For these reasons, we believe Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is ideally sited, as it is natural treatment that's facilities self-repair. After all, the osteopathic profession was founded on the basis of the body’s powerful capacity to self-heal.
Here’s why we think PRP Injections are a great source of treatment for our patients.
1. PRP is natural and holistic
Osteopaths treat the patient as a whole, rather than just the injury. With platelet rich plasma, this promotes the body’s own healing mechanisms to facilitate repair and recovery.
2. PRP is a musculoskeletal mechanic
Osteopaths primarily deals with musculoskeletal pain and injury. Here at Dynamic Regenerative Medicine in Solihull and Birmingham we know PRP Injections are slowly becoming the first-line treatments for musculoskeletal problems. For example, some researchers believe PRP should be first-line treatment for Knee Meniscus issues. In 2016, researches from the University of Missouri, published the results from a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial on PRP for osteoarthritis, concluding that PRP provided safe and significant benefits. Further quality data also has been published on knee arthritis and chronic tendinitis since.
3. High potential of PRP
PRP is used for many things, this because it’s mechanism is generic and it can be safely assumed that if it works in musculoskeletal care. Further studies are now underway comparing PRP to cortisone injections, short and long term. If you’re keen on hard evidence, have a look at these the randomised trials as well as other studies in the NCBI database.
Dr. Peter Lewis, a fellow of the American Academy of Regenerative Medicine, and the clinical director of the Surecell Group, who’s administered over 100,000 PRP injections to 12,000 patients says, “More than 80% of the patients who undergo PRP treatments enjoy very good results. Even people who’ve been told they’d need surgery have a 70% chance that Platelet-Rich Plasma will help them.”
Here at Dynamic Regenerative Medicine in Solihull and Birmingham we believe in the beneficial effects of PRP treatment. For this reason we are offering this treatment for a wide range of conditions whether it be related to sports injury of general occupation.
