The Institute of Regenerative & Molecular Orthopedics Applauds Newly Released Study on Platelet-Rich Plasma
Date:5/17/2013

(PRWEB) May 17, 2013

The Institute of Regenerative & Molecular Orthopedics, a leading provider of platelet-rich plasma therapy injections and stem cell therapy, is applauding the just-released results of a study emphasizing the improved outcomes for individuals with jumper’s knee who undergo PRP injections.

The study, conducted by researchers in Rome, showed that PRP was more effective than extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) in the treatment of athletes with jumper’s knee. Researchers concluded that therapeutic injections of PRP led to better midterm clinical results, compared to shock wave therapy.

Researchers randomized 46 athletes into two groups—and participants in each group had runner’s knee. One group received PRP injections, while the other received ESWT. The PRP grouped had significantly improved results in Victorian Institute of Sports Assessment-Patella, VAS and modified Blazina scale scores compared to the ESWT group at 6-month and 12-month follow-up.

“We’re excited to read about these innovative research results in the field of PRP therapy,”said a spokesperson for the Institute of Regenerative & Molecular Orthopedics. “A great deal of our work focuses on PRP therapy, and we’re considered one of the leading treatment providers of this kind in the world.”

The science behind PRP rests on the idea that platelets and the accompanying stem cells are responsible for repair, whether it’s in terms of healing an injury or after a surgery. Research over the past few decades has shown that PRP plays a significant role in healing. PRP injections are replacing traditional orthopedic surgery in many instances for conditions ranging from soft tissue injuries (tendonitis, muscle tears, ligamentous injuries) to various joint afflictions, such as a torn meniscus or mild to moderate arthritis of the joint.

“We believe that we’ll continue to see significant research being done on the benefits of PRP injections,” said the company spokesperson. “We’re excited to stay on the cusp of the medical findings for this effective and innovative treatment process.”
