Orthopaedic medicine is a field in medicine devoted to the evaluation, diagnosis and non-operative treatment of painful musculoskeletal problems.
At the Orléans Clinic of Orthopaedic Medicine we are involved in the non-surgical management of problems affecting all the joints in the body and the whole spine (neck, thoracic and low back).
With the treatment modalities we use at the clinic, we have an excellent success rate in managing persistent and recurring pain problems, such as:
The modalities of treatment used at the Orléans Clinic of Orthopaedic Medicine vary depending on the problem.
These procedures enhance the healing process and offer better and faster recovery of damaged tissues from injuries and/or degeneration for many musculoskeletal conditions.
During prolotherapy treatment, an irritant solution, usually dextrose, is injected into the damaged tissue. This procedure causes the irritation necessary to initiate the healing cascade. These treatments are administered monthly. Normally, after 2 treatments, a gradual improvement in discomfort is noted. Maximum recovery is achieved after 4-6 treatments. Patients usually notice discomfort and stiffness for 2-3 days following a treatment. These discomforts are usually controlled with acetaminophen.
PRP is a more advanced regenerative procedure. In order to initiate the healing cascade, the patient's platelets are injected into the joint or damaged tissue. Platelets are cells found in the blood that contain a large amount of growth factors necessary for healing. During treatment, 60-120 ml of the patient's blood is taken and manipulated to concentrate the platelets. This has the effect of increasing the concentration of growth factors by up to 600%. This concentrate of platelets and growth factors is then injected into the damaged tissue to initiate the healing process. It takes on average 2-4 treatments, administered monthly, to achieve maximal recovery. In comparison to prolotherapy, healing is quicker with PRP.
