Using the body’s own healing mechanisms to treat joint and tendon damage.
Orthobiologics are a group of treatment options that are more natural than many conventional remedies such as cortisone and have been proven highly effective in treating osteoarthritis and tendinopathy (tendinitis also known as tendonitis) when applied in the correct setting. At Ohio State, this family of treatments primarily includes Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate Therapy (BMAC). These natural remedies work with your body to improve symptoms and potentially restore cartilage and tendon structure.
