Often associated with platelet-rich plasma therapy, orthobiologics uses the human body’s natural platelets and involves the injection of the patient’s concentrated source of platelets. This does not involve surgery and is minimally invasive.
World-famous athletes have used orthobiologics for many years, and the treatment is now affordable and available for everyone.
How Does OrthoBiologics Work?
The procedure begins by obtaining a small sample of the patient’s blood which is then placed in a high-spinning centrifuge machine. The spinning separates the blood into different components: plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. This concentrated source of biological substances is then injected into the patient.
Additional injections (3 injections) may be needed to maximize results, but they are done over months. The entire process takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes per injection, and most patients can return to their normal daily activities shortly after receiving the injection.
