Sports Therapy & Osteoarthritis

You have probably heard about therapies like PRP Treatment, or sometimes called PRP Therapy, being used to assist professional athletes like Tiger Woods and Hines Ward to accelerate their healing time. These athletes received PRP Treatment after experiencing injuries that should have sidelined them for months. Instead, they’ve experienced faster recovery times thanks to PRP treatments.

Regenerative medicine takes advantage of our natural ability to heal ourselves by using healthy regenerative cells found throughout the body. Laboratory and clinical research has shown that it is possible to use platelet rich plasma and adult stem cells to heal and even regenerate lost, damaged or aging tissue, providing some patients with an alternative to surgery.

Sports Therapy

PRP Treatment can potentially treat a range of sports and acute injuries resulting in joint, tendon, and ligament pain. Soft tissue injuries are most responsive to PRP treatment.

  • Joint pain resulting from inflammation after an acute injury
  • Chronic Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Ligament and muscle injuries
  • Tendonitis, e.g. tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow
  • Early partial tendon tears

For example, tendonitis, such as Achilles tendonitis or patellar tendonitis in the knee, or tennis elbow, are common overuse conditions plaguing many athletes.

Many of these tendons involve microscopic tearing and formation of scar tissue. It is often difficult to heal these tendon injuries due to poor blood supply to these regions. With PRP treatment, this concentrated platelet injection enhances the nutrients and growth factors in the injured area to allow the body to heal it.

Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP Treatment to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives.

Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP Treatment confirming the healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a type of joint disease that results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. The most common symptoms are joint pain and stiffness. Initially, symptoms may occur only following exercise, but over time they may become constant. Other symptoms may include joint swelling, decreased range of motion, and, when the back is affected, weakness or numbness of the arms and legs. Unlike other types of arthritis, only the joints are typically affected.

Can PRP Help?

Traditional options for patients suffering from chronic musculoskeletal injuries involve arthroscopic surgery or joint replacements. These options can often require months of rehabilitation to regain strength and mobility, and the patient must be prepared for associated risks.

Most cases of PRP treatments are successful, and avoid the pain, disability, down time, and risk associated with major surgery. There is minimal recovery from a PRP treatment, usually mediated by soreness and some bruising in the treated area.

In recent years scientists and doctors have made tremendous advances in moving regenerative medicine into the mainstream as a treatment for many diseases and disorders. The reparative procedures offered at our facility aim to repair damaged tissues and get you back to your active lifestyle without the need for surgery.
