Our team of doctors cares for our athletes, to help them recover and to prepare them for new successes.

At the clinic we conduct:

  • Diagnostic processing
  • Ultrasound of the locomotor system for sports injuries
  • Specialist examinations
  • PRP therapy
  • Non-surgical treatments of sports injuries.
PRP  

Since 2013, our sports medicine specialists have introduced a new method of non-surgical treatment of sports injuries of the tendons, muscles, and cartilage, known as PRP (plasma cell therapy). This method has helped our sports medicine and ultrasound diagnostics team have a more detailed approach to treatment and faster recovery of athletes.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE OF THE PRP THERAPY

After taking 10 ml of blood, it is processed in a centrifuge to isolate the patient’s plasma. After that, the doctor isolates the growth factors from plasma and applies them to the treated area by a special technique.

NON-SURGICAL METHODS

ACP (Autologous Conditioned Plasma) – The method of regeneration of cartilage is used to treat chronic degenerative changes of tendons, acute ligament injury, muscle injury, intraoperative healing, and regeneration of superficial cartilage damage.

Synocrom – hyaluronic acid application in the wrist.

Blockade – application of a corticosteroid and anesthetic, under ultrasonographyc control

AUTOLOGOUS THERAPY (ORTHOKIN)

The autologous therapy system is a unique way of treating pain in the joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries without the addition of drugs, using one’s own “good” proteins that are injected into the affected region.

It is a completely biological method, using one’s own endogenous proteins and treatment factors. At the beginning of the process, the blood of the patient is taken and treated under special conditions, to later be returned as an injection into the painful area.

By treating the patient’s blood, 5-6 ampoules of blood for the treatment are gained and are administered to the patient once a week, depending on the indication, in the joint or another region of the locomotor system, as well as for cartilage restoration.

Indications for autologous therapy:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knees, hips, shoulders, legs, and ankles
  • Traumatic joint injury of the cartilage
  • Lumboischialgia
  • Traumatic rupture of musculature
  • Pathological changes of tendons and ligaments
  • Other inflammatory and post-traumatic conditions.
