ORTHOKINE® BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT
ORTHOKINE therapy is a modern, extremely effective and safe method of treating
osteoarthritis and degenerative changes in the spine, sports injuries - muscles, joints, tendons,
ligaments. It supports regeneration processes after operations, in pain caused by pressure on
the roots and nerve trunks of the spine before and after surgery. It uses the natural
(biological), own (autologous) abilities of the body - to the damaged place (e.g. knee joint or
spine joint) we administer proteins multiplied in the preparation process, including the largest
amount of the protein that blocks the receptor for Interleukin-1. The power of its own natural
anti-inflammatory proteins inhibits the inflammatory process that causes pain (Il-1Ra). The
entire therapy consists in stimulating the patient's cellular reserves to produce cytokines
derived from his own blood.
Preparation: for 24 hours the patient must refrain from drinking alcohol, coffee, tea. Anti-
inflammatory drugs should be discontinued. After collection, blood is incubated on special
substrates at 37 degrees Celsius for 6-9 hours, then centrifugation, separation of the multiplied
proteins and administration, usually 4-6 times; after preparation, the protein is frozen and
heated to body temperature before subsequent administrations (hence blood is collected once
for 4-6 administrations).
Therapy indicated after operations of the cervical and lumbar spine, with compression
of the nerve roots. It has an anti-inflammatory effect, works like a steroid blockade, but
without steroids and much longer.
ORTHOKINE is indicated in, among others:
inflammation of the joints, e.g. knee, hip, elbow, shoulder (degenerative disease)
damage to the articular cartilage,
sports injuries (tendons, muscles, ligaments), tennis and golfer's elbow, jumper’s knee
degenerative diseases of the spine with compression of the nerve roots in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar sections, diseases of the intervertebral joints.
