Orthopedic Conditions – Available Treatments

Most diseases in the human body are associated with orthopedic conditions. Starting from stress to most serious illnesses, almost every human experience some form of orthopedic condition in their life span. Orthopedic disorders include disorders in the bones, joints, muscles and connective tissue as well as ligaments and cartilage. These conditions are popular to be treated with braces, casts, medications, therapy, rehabilitation, injections and surgery.

Braces can be used to compensate an injured joint in order to help support weak muscles. Knee braces, elbow clasp, ice and heat wraps and walking aids are used for this purpose. Casts are usually used as post-surgical immobilization. Rehabilitation is used as the primary treatment for orthopedic treatment as well as an adjunct to another treatment. Physical therapy, stretching techniques, exercises are a few methods used for rehabilitation. The common most medication used for this type of conditions includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.

Commonly used injections for orthopedic treatment is cortisone. Injectable cortisone is produced synthetically and it is injected into an area of inflammation. However, cortisone is not a medication to relieve pain but only to treat inflammation. A more effective injecting therapy method introduced by Dr. Purita is PRP therapy and Stem Cell therapy which has healed many of the orthopedic conditions without surgery.

PRP therapy is less aggressive and less expensive than surgery while it heals tissue with minimal or no scarring at all. PRP therapy helps regenerate tendons and ligaments but a quick fix should not be expected. PRP therapy stands for Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy where higher concentrations of platelets are introduced to the site of the injury. During PRP therapy a sample of the patient’s blood is drawn from the arm and placed in a centrifuge to separate platelets from the other blood components. This concentrated platelet rich plasma is then injected to the area of the specific condition. The purpose of this medication is to jump-start and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing process.

Stem cell treatment is a treatment carried by the use of bone marrow. The bone marrow is gathered from the back of the patient’s pelvis with a syringe that is attached to a tiny needle under local anesthesia. Then the bone marrow is placed on a centrifuge that spins with high speed separating the stem cells and the platelets. This bone marrow aspiration concentrate is then introduced the injured area for recovery.

Any patient with a tendon or an injury in the ligament who was treated with traditional methods and not received relief can try out Dr. Purita’s method for recovery. Approximately 86% of patients treated for orthopedic conditions with PRP therapy and Stem cell therapy has responded to be satisfied with this method but it is important to proceed with this remedy with prior advice from your physician.
