Treatment methods

Do you know that 90% of people do not stand or walk correctly?

Reasons why: Bad movement habit, wrong footwear, being overweight, wrong choice of sport, family history, all these are factors that cause our legs to hurt, to bend, or give up altogether. On the picture you can see, how little can cause us all these problems: wrong position of the feet affects the position of the ankle, then the rotation of the knee, and then comes the pain in our hips. And all this can be caused simply by wearing the wrong footwear.
  Most of the shoes are made the same with the so-called orthopedic insoles we can buy in-store. All are made for the average foot. But all feet are individual, as is every person.
  This is why the group of New Zealand sport orthopedic experts designed special insoles called Formthotics. These soles are modeled on your feet, and we can fit them in your shoes within a few minutes. So please bring with you at least two pairs of shoes, we will heat them up, insert the insoles and you can walk away wearing Formthotics!

Advantages of Formthotics ·       Insoles are made from ultralight 2 layer foam which are antibacterial, antifungal ·       They are heat moldable to your foot to provide enhanced fitting and comfort ·       They help reduce shock absorption for walking on hard city surfaces ·       They provide better support and control for your feet ·       They help to increase blood flow to your feet and legs ·       They provide the arch support to ensure your foot is in the neutral position ·       They minimize pressure points on your feet ·       They create an extra support and control around your heels ·       They are base and balance for your whole body
Are your joints hurting? Are you are sportsperson and are you post – injury? Are you post – operation and need to speed up your recovery? How ACP can help you and questions you may wish to ask
  Q: How does the ACP treatment work? A: ACP is a very simple, short and pain free process. During your approximately 15 minute visit with the orthopedic specialist, she will take about 9 mls of venous blood into syringe. Your blood will then be processed in special equipment, which will separate plasma. This process enables us to collect a sample containing plasma rich in blood cells and concentrated growth factors. This will be the plasma which our specialist will inject into the required spot. 

Q: How can I know that ACP treatment is the treatment I should consider? A: This is not something you can realize without specialized help. You will need a specialist consultation. The ACP treatment is suitable particularly for typical sports injuries, such as tennis elbow, Achilles tendon pain, jumper’s knee, heel pain. We can use the ACP to treat fresh or already operated damaged rotary cuff of shoulder joints, after replacement of crossed over knee tendons, difficult ankle sprain or other tendon injuries.

Q: How many plasma treatments do I need to receive? A: The most common treatment would be to give you two treatments in a week’s interval.

Q: My doctor told me that I have the fourth grade arthritis and that I should try ACP treatment. Can it help me? A: In this case would not recommend the ACP treatment. The ACP is ideal for helping your rehabilitation and greatly speed up your recovery after acute or chronic pain, is some cases by 50%. The ACP will sharply improve the chance of big joints cartilage, however the advanced stages of arthritis which would necessitate a joint replacement are not suitable to be treated by the ACP.
Q: I have been suffering from tennis elbow for over two years. Will ACP treatment help me and for how long? A: The enthesopathic injuries/arthritis, e.g. tennis elbow, golf elbow, painful groin, etc… are suitable to treat by anti-inflammatory and growth factors in ACP method. The biological treatment such as the ACP, can be effectively combined with other physical methods to treat tendon injuries, most effectively in combination with treatment by the extracorporeal shockwave therapy. Our experience shows that we can return you to the full activity after six months of treatment.

Q: Is there a statistical data showing the success and failure rates in patients treated by the ACP method? A: In 2010, the ORP Centrum was the first in Czech Republic to start using plasma to treat these kind of injuries. Our statistics show that our patients return to much – improved, quality movement 50% faster due to the treatment by the ACP method. Our patients can return to the full sporting activity 30% faster. Patients with arthritic pain in their knees can speed up their recovery by 34%, in comparison with the treatment by injections of hyaluron, where the return is only a 10% improvement. In cases of injuries or post – operative pain i.e. shoulder or Achilles tendon, the recovery is 30 - 50% faster.
Q: Can I interrupt the treatment for any reason? A: Yes we can interrupt or postpone the treatment without negative effect. We can complete the second half of your treatment two or three weeks after the first treatment.

The ACP Method is suitable for the treatment of: ·       Degenerative disease of big joints in early or mid-stages ·       Tennis elbow ·       Achilles tendon pain ·       Jumper’s knee ·       Heel pain ·       Shoulder joint injury ·       Sprained ankle ·       Fresh muscle injuries ·       Other post – operative complications
