FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is the BPT®-therapy?
The unique BPT®-therapy system is a way of treating joint and back pain, as well as tendon or muscle injuries, wounds and skin injuries in both human and animals without drugs or other foreign substances. The method is completely biological, making use of the body’s own endogenous proteins and healing factors only. The process starts with blood being drawn from the vein. The blood is processed under special conditions. The serum obtained from this process is subsequently re-injected back into the patient’s target lesion.
2. What conditions can be treated with the BPT®-therapy?
The BPT®-therapy is proven for the treatment of
- Joint pain due to osteoarthritis (stages I-III), inflammatory arthritis
- Tendon or muscle injuries that do not require surgery
- Complicated wounds (diabetic, traumatic, post-surgical, pressure ulcers)
- Skin rejuvenation
- Joint disorders in animals
3. What are the advantages of the BPT®-therapy?
The BPT®-therapy is based on using only substances that originate from the body of the patient. Therefore it is very well tolerated. The anti-inflammatory and regenerative components of the processed serum cause long lasting clinical effects.
4. How does the BPT®-therapy work?
The BPT®-therapy works by inhibiting pain and inflammation in
- Nerve root irritation, injuries to tendons or muscles
- Wound and injured skin tissue
Thereby fitness and mobility of the affected area are improved and recovery is accelerated by regenerative factors in the serum.
5. How long do the effects of the BPT®-therapy last?
Every case is different. It is impossible to predict how long the benefits of the BPT®-therapy will last in a given individual. Amongst other factors it is dependent on the severity of injury at the start of treatment.
6. When is the BPT®-therapy not recommended?
This treatment should not be initiated while you are suffering from an acute infection or fever, have had diarrhea in the last three days, have taken antibiotics at any time in the preceding week or have received a vaccination in the last four weeks. Preferably, the BPT®-therapy should be performed on patients who are in stable overall health.
7. What interactions with other treatments may occur?
No negative interactions of the BPT®-therapy with medications or other treatment methods have been observed.
8. What side effects may occur?
The serum used in the BPT®-therapy is of 100% endogenous origin, it is obtained entirely from the patient’s own body. The mode of action is biological, making the BPT®-therapy an especially well tolerated method. Side effects are rare. Occasionally, an irritation may be caused by the injection itself.
9. What does the BPT® treatment consist of?
At the physicians practice you will have a blood specimen drawn in the morning. You will then be given an appointment for the first injection in the course of the following week(s). Based on the recommendation of the physician, you will receive several injections usually once or twice a week.
10. Has the BPT®-therapy been proven scientifically?
Several studies are available, which prove effectiveness and long-term benefit of the BPT®-therapy in both human and animal patients in the medical literature.
11. How many reinjections are necessary?
The number of reinjections depends on the severity of the pathology and the indication, however in general 2 to 4 injections are necessary in one target lesion area
12. Can the BPT®-therapy be repeated?
From a medical point of view, treatment can be repeated any number of times.
