Many people suffer from joint osteoarthritis and chronic lower back pain. When pain killers can no longer help or when surgery cannot be performed because of the body condition, there are new possibilities of a treatment. There are patients who can’t have surgery because they can’t tolerate treatment with glucocorticoids or who don’t want to take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs every day.
Orthokine therapy, done in Lithuania, is a unique biological therapy technique, used to relieve joint pain and inflammation or chronic back pain, to treat ligament and muscles after injuries. This therapy is unique, since only the patient’s own proteins and other natural materials are used to promote healing. A serum created with special laboratory equipment helps restore sensitivity and proper functionality of the affected body part. During the procedure, the patient’s blood sample is treated with special laboratory equipment and a concentrated autologous serum is extracted. The serum is then injected back into affected areas of the body. The serum is injected 1-2 times a week, and normally only 3-6 injections are required. The total duration of the treatment depends on the severity of the disease and the patient’s general condition. The effect of this treatment is felt for approximately half a year to two years, in some cases for as long as six years.
This therapy is perfect for those who need to rebuild muscles or tendons activity after injury, or in case of a prolonged post-surgery healing process.
