Why is OCM better than PRP? We have the answer!

Dennis Harper, DC, has spent many years understanding the medical uses of ozone—specifically in conjunction with advanced vitamin solutions and protocols. He found that when adding ozone, in specific amounts and with proper techniques, to injection protocols the results have been a massive increase in patient recovery from joint and ligament degeneration, arthritic conditions, and scar tissue. Harper Restoration System techniques are considered regenerative therapies yielding an 80-85% success rate. Those types of outcomes have shown, in many cases, to be more effective than drugs and surgery combined.

The biggest differences between OCM and PRP are time….

                        and the natural fibrin matrix, which provides a structure capable of enhancing regenerative type repair and encouraging cellular growth.manual-swirl

The efficacy of certain growth factors in healing various injuries and the concentrations of these growth factors found within PRP are the theoretical basis for the use of PRP in tissue repair. The platelets collected in PRP are activated by the addition of thrombin and calcium chloride, which induces the release of the mentioned factors from alpha granules. An exogenous carrier {collagen sponge} is necessary to insure liquid remains at the proposed site.

These are two of the major differences between OCM and PRP. OCM uses amino acids and B Vitamins with Ozone to create a medium where the platelets are held in a cytokine rich clot matrix, that is highly ozonated, thus providing cells with the ideal medium, over an extended period providing an opportunity for cellular dedifferentiation.  Centrifugation and chemical additives are not necessary with OCM.

Dr. Harper has found that by taking whole blood, clotting the blood, and mixing it with ozone and our patented vitamin mixture, a fibrous matrix resembling a foam consistency is obtained. When injected in joints it essentially fills in the joint allowing up to 14 days in which cellular stimulation and tissue regeneration occur.

The fibrous matrix created in OCM stays active in the joints for up to 14 days; providing an ideal environment ripe for cellular stimulation and tissue regeneration to occur.  We find that with most patients, two to three injections over three months are very effective in reaching the desired treatment goal.

By using this minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative for injuries and joint degeneration, the human body is given the natural tools to begin to heal itself. Ozone stimulates the body’s natural healing process—patients exhibit rapid relief from chronic pain.
