If you have a sports injury that’s unlikely to heal with home care treatment, or your injury is more severe, and you want to avoid surgical intervention, our safe, all-natural pain relief treatments are designed to help enhance your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Sports Injury Treatment
Our doctors provide treatment to injured athletes and non-athletes for virtually any sports-related condition, commonly including:
- ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tear
- Patellofemoral syndrome
- Shin splints
- Epicondylitis (also known as “tennis elbow”)
- Groin pull
- Sprained ankle
- Hamstring strain
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Meniscus and cartilage damage
- Rotator cuff injury
- Labral tear
- Shoulder impingement
- Tendon tears or tendonitis
- Nerve damage or pressure on a nerve
Regenerative medicine, defined by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is “the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects.”
The regenerative treatments available at our clinic are designed to restore tissue that is unlikely to heal sufficiently on its own. Stem cell and platelet-rich plasma injections are two highly effective, minimally invasive treatments our doctors provide in these cases.
Stem Cell Injections
A stem cell injection delivers an incredibly robust regenerative force. The stem cells used in our treatments—Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells—are of the highest quality available. Ethically sourced from highly regulated tissue banks, these valuable stem cells are extracted from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical cords during planned cesarean section deliveries. Donors are screened beforehand, and the procedure is safe and completely painless.
When these young, vibrant stem cells get to work on your damaged tissue, they immediately begin to calm inflammation and jump-start your body’s repair and rejuvenation process.
Platelet-rich plasma works on similar principles as cell therapy. Platelets provide a powerful boost to your body’s natural ability to heal itself. But rather than rely on donated tissue, platelet-rich plasma is synthesized right here in the clinic, using your own blood. That makes it a less costly treatment, and it is often just as effective for certain sports injuries.
Trigger Point Injections
When a sports injury primarily involves the muscle, trigger point injections are highly effective. The injection contains sarapin—a natural plant-derived anti-inflammatory—that the doctor precisely injects into a muscle knot, helping it to relax. Even with more severe sports injuries, the pain relief resulting from a trigger point injection can sometimes last for weeks. During this time, your treatment plan may include other forms of therapy to help with long-term recovery.
Because the brain communicates with every part of your body via the spinal cord, when the spine is out of alignment, it can be far more difficult to recover from seemingly unrelated injuries. Whether or not your sports injury directly involves your back, a chiropractic adjustment can bring your body into correct balance, making it easier for your injury to heal.
