With rising temperatures and more hours of sunlight, it is no wonder why we see a big increase in injuries every spring. Whether you’re a star athlete on a college baseball team, a freshman trying out for high school track and field, or simply enjoy the daily round of golf at your local course, sports injuries can result in serious damage if left untreated. That’s where regenerative medicine comes in, offering an alternative form of pain relief from some of the most common sports injuries.
Game Changing Pain Management for Sports Injuries
Common sports injuries, such as a torn ligament or joint pain, can leave the body unable to repair itself adequately, which can lead to ongoing pain and disability. Regenerative techniques involve boosting the body’s natural ability to heal itself or to deliver targeted cells and cell products to support tissue and organ function. Three forms of treatment for runner’s knee, tennis elbow, and other sports injuries that we offer at Physician Partners of America are:
- Stem Cell Therapy – Stem Cell Therapy involved the harvesting, concentration, and purification of Stem Cells for injection into areas where you suffer chronic pain. They tend to have a powerful healing and rejuvenating effect!
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy – Platelets are a natural reserve of growth factors that facilitate blood flow and strengthen cartilage. In this therapy, platelets are separated from a sample of the patient’s blood using a centrifuge and then injected into the site of injury, often yielding excellent results.
- Allograft/Adhesive Barrier – We use highly advanced surgical techniques to graft donor tissue and minimize any scarring with the most advanced adhesive barriers.
No matter which treatment we recommend, our pain management physicians will walk you through each step, from the initial stages of consultation right through post-procedure recovery. Although much of our work depends on resolving injuries that are a direct result of playing sports, we never discourage our clients from taking part in healthy physical activity! We work with clients to help them modify their behavior so as to minimize the risk of any injury in the future.
Whether you’ve sustained an ankle sprain or a torn Achilles Heel, our pain management doctors are ready to assist! Give us a call to schedule an appointment at the pain management clinic nearest you.
