Orthokine® therapy is one of the methods of treating osteoarthritis and inflammation. It is also used to support treatment after surgery, to prevent pain, and to prevent arthrosis.
Osteoarthritis is the most common disease of the musculoskeletal system. It usually affects knee, hip, shoulder and spine. The result of osteoarthritis is pain during physical activity and stiffness in the joint. In the course of an exacerbation, when the pain is intense and felt during rest, additional inflammation may develop.
Orthokine® therapy consists in injecting the patient with special protective proteins obtained and separated from blood collected earlier. As a result, the mixture of autologous Orthokine® serum proteins does not contain any substances foreign to the body.
It is a completely safe and effective method of treatment, proven by numerous clinical studies. The therapy has been applied for over 10 years. It is not addictive and can be repeated. The attending physician decides about the length and number of administrations (injections).
