Functional Orthopedics

We all know how important our joints are — they help us move, work and play. But years of intense sports, injuries, and underlying diseases can make the joints deteriorate, leading to joint pain and a reduced range of motion. Functional orthopedics involves using non-surgical treatments to stimulate joint regeneration and healing.

Harness Your Body’s Healing Powers

The musculoskeletal system is responsible for the movement of the human body and for providing stability to the bones and joints. This system comprises the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissues. As we grow older, sports injuries, diseases, and lifestyle factors can lead to the deterioration of the joints and bones, leading to joint pain, reduced range of motion, and other painful conditions.

Functional orthopedics deals with the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions that negatively affect your life. It specifically focuses on the function of the joints and bones and aims to alleviate your concerns with non-surgical treatments. Functional orthopedics catalyzes your body’s innate healing processes to heal joint problems and injuries and improve your range of motion.

Benefits of Functional Orthopedics:

  • Improve alignment of the body
  • Recover from injuries quicker
  • Alleviate joint pain
  • Improve range of motion
  • Stimulate natural regeneration
  • Avoid needing surgery
  • No downtime or recovery period
  • Improve overall quality of life

PRP Therapy

One of the most promising treatments in functional orthopedics is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy involves taking a small sample of the patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge. This separates the blood into different components, including platelets, which are injected back into the patient. PRP therapy treats various conditions, including tendinitis, arthritis, ligament injuries, rotator cuff tears, and joint injuries.

The human blood contains numerous components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelets, in turn, contain a high concentration of growth factors responsible for most of your body’s healing processes, such as cellular regeneration, tissue regeneration, and blood clotting.

When you’re injured, for example, the growth factors in your blood rush to the injured site to stimulate blood clot formation and cellular regeneration.

PRP therapy works by harnessing your body’s innate healing properties. When the growth factor-rich platelets are isolated and injected into the injured joints, your body kickstarts the healing process. Over time, the growth factors in the PRP serum stimulate tissue regeneration to heal your damaged or injured joints, leading to improved functionality. Since this procedure relies on substances derived from your body, there are no major risks.
