- During ACP Therapy processed, patient's own blood is used. Autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) is used by orthopedists and sports physicians primarily for the treatment of arthrosis, degenerative tendon injuries and joint inflammation, as well as acute sports injuries.

- In facet infiltration, the physician injects the active substance mixture into the small joints where the bony processes of the vertebral arches rest on each other (facet joints). Because the "shock absorber effect" of the intervertebral discs diminishes over the course of life, the natural gaps between the vertebral joints are reduced. This leads to increasing wear of the facet joints and ultimately to back pain. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
- Shock wave therapy is a gentle method for treating acute and chronic pain in the musculoskeletal system. Dabei werden außerhalb des Körpers (extrakorporal) Druckwellen erzeugt. The procedure is therefore also called extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT).
