Zhang Jianbo said that by using high-concentration platelet-rich plasma (PRP) proliferative treatment, by injecting high-concentration platelet plasma, the body’s repair response is activated and the soft tissue regains its self-healing ability. Can start.
After the injection, Mr. Cai combined it with exercise and rehabilitation of the quadriceps and gluteal muscles. By now, he can go up and down the stairs normally, and his knees no longer hurt and no longer stuck.
Zhang Jianbo pointed out that the self-healing mechanism of human body injuries depends on platelets. Platelets release a variety of growth factors that promote tissue healing, induce angiogenesis and collagen synthesis, so PRP is suitable for soft tissues, such as:muscleThe repair and regeneration of tendons, ligaments and cartilage, and the higher the platelet concentration, the higher the growth factors, and the better the repair effect.
During the treatment, 10 to 20cc of the patient’s blood is drawn, the platelets with the highest concentration are extracted, and then injected into the affected area of the patient.Zhang Jianbo said that the advantage is that the concentration of platelet growth factor is higher And the repair speed is fast, and it is an autologous product, so it will not be rejected and does not contain any antigen or antibody.AllergiesNo steroid related problems and side effects.
Applicable symptoms include:JointCartilage, muscle, tendon and ligament repair, if people have shoulder and neck pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow, mom’s hand, trigger finger, degenerative arthritis, plantar fasciitis, ligament injuries, tendonitis, frozen Shoulder etc. are all applicable items.

The thighs can be called the second heart of the body, supporting the body weight, running, sitting and other complex activities. It is essential to develop exercise habits and maintain muscle strength on a daily basis to avoid physical damage caused by loss of muscle strength. ,
