Your body’s own help for Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a symptom of age, they said. You should accept it, they said.
At an age beyond 60 every second person complains of painful joints. Even young persons may suffer from Osteoarthritis. Mostly hips and knees are affected. Osteoarthritis has many causes. Factors such as genetic predisposition, overweight and intensive load at work or sports play a significant role. Pain and reduced joint mobility are the most common symptoms.
Today, the biological causes of Osteoarthritis are much better understood. It is not just the mechanical cartilage wear but a complex disease that may affect anybody. The aggressive messenger protein Interleukin-1 (IL-1) plays a pivotal role in the development of Osteoarthritis. It stimulates joint inflammations. Although sometimes imperceptible, chronic joint inflammation results in joint pain and cartilage destruction.
Protective messengers (protective proteins) protect the cartilage.
The biological antagonist of IL-1 is ideal for a gentle and natural Osteoarthritis injection therapy. The protective protein is called Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist (IL-1Ra). It displaces the aggressive IL-1 and has a pain reducing, anti-inflammatory and cartilage protecting effect.
The Orthokine-therapy takes advantage of this. The protective protein, IL-1Ra, is a natural component of your blood. It is increased concomitantly with several other protective messengers during incubation. The emerging conditioned blood serum is prepared and will be injected in the affected joint.
Since 1997 patients have been treated successfully with the Orthokine-therapy. In studies, Orthokine conditioned serum impoves joint pain and function. The continuing process of cartilage destruction in the join is slowed. This also applies for the joints of the spine.
Orthokine conditioned serum also treats back pain
Back pain is the most common reason for consultation. Often slipped disc or disc protusion are the cause. Pressure on the nerve causes inflammation. Pain is the result (eg scatia). The Orthokine-therapy can successfully fight inflammation locally. It can relieve pain as well as improve the nerve damage. The treatment is absolutely natural, 100% autologous and is clinically proven.
How does the Orthokind-therapy work?
Blood is aspirated from your vein with the special EOT-syringe.
Incubation of the blood filled EOT-syringes at body temperature (37’c). Protective proteins are being synthesized.
‘Autologous Conditioned Serum’: Blood serum with the newly formed protective proteins is separated from the blood clot.
1-2 times per week you receive an injection into the joint or to the inflamed nerve.
Back pain treatment consists of up to four local injections, while joint treatment may require up to eight injections.
