For some time now, there has been an alternative to conventional therapies for the treatment of arthrosis or injuries to muscles, tendons and ligaments. Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) can be used to relieve pain in osteoarthritis and accelerate healing of injuries to the musculoskeletal system. During the healing process of an injured tissue, a number of different interlocking processes take place in the body.

These processes are regulated by the so-called growth factors - signal substances which are released by the blood platelets or thrombocytes. Thrombocytes are constantly present in the blood and are activated, for example, in the event of injury. They then release the growth factors at the site of the injury in order to start and promote the healing process. If the body's own blood is now processed accordingly, this effect can be specifically intensified. It has been proven that the ACP procedure significantly increases both the number of thrombocytes and the concentration of growth factors. The positive influence on the course of pain and the healing process has been intensively investigated and confirmed in recent years. Platelets always play a decisive role in an injury, both in hemostasis and wound healing. 


Aging processes, genetic predisposition, but also excessive one-sided stress or accidents can lead to wear and tear of the joint cartilage. This wear and tear is known as arthrosis and can affect any joint. With the onset of arthrosis, the following occurs complaints such as unpleasant pulling in the joint, stiff joints in the morning or even start-up pain. As many examples in our practice show, ACP therapy can lead to good results in all degrees of arthrosis with individual differences.


A frequent cause of injuries to the musculoskeletal system is biomechanical overloading or incorrect loading. The musculature reacts with strains or fibre tears. Tendons can cause inflammation, persistent irritation or even tears. A torn ligament is not uncommon.


In sports injuries we have also found that ACP therapy can support other therapies and contribute to an accelerated healing process.
