Being involved in sports activities means that there’s always a chance you could get injured. Whether you are a weekend warrior or professional athlete, it’s unlikely that your sports injuries will heal with traditional non-surgical treatments. That’s why our personal injury doctor offers regenerative medicine treatments like injections containing stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. We can treat the most common sports injuries, including:
- Knee injuries (e.g., an ACL tear)
- Shoulder injuries
- Tennis and golf elbow
- Shin splints
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Ankle sprains
- And more
Our sports injury clinic in Tulsa also offers chiropractic care as part of our treatments and recovery strategies for various types of sports injuries.
Sports Injury Doctor
A sprain is a common sports injury that affects your ligaments, the tough bands connecting the bones in your joints. If you play sports, you run the risk of stretching your ligaments past their limits, resulting in damage like tears. Another common sports injury is a strain to the muscle fibers or tendons that anchor muscles to bones.
If you’re injured, and you want to ensure that your recovery is as fast as possible, our sports injury doctor recommends regenerative medicine to help you heal from the inside out for all-natural pain relief that gets you back on track.
Whether your injury is due to a one-time trauma or chronic overuse, we suggest regenerative medicine for almost any sports injury involving tendons, ligaments, muscles, and cartilage.
Treatments for Sports Injuries
Injections Containing Stem Cells
Stem cells can address your sports injury by developing into other cells such as cartilage and tendons. While other doctors use stem cells taken from your fat or bone marrow, we prefer to use Wharton’s jelly-derived stem cells, which are younger and potentially more vigorous in their multiplication and thus healing capabilities. Stem cells aid in repairing and regenerating tissues and can be used to treat multiple sports-related injuries and conditions.
Injections containing regenerative cells may be used to treat wounds, soft tissue, and joint damage. These treatments also include growth factors, proteins, and other bioactive physiological components that facilitate the healing process, reduce inflammation, and accelerate tissue regrowth.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge therapy that targets pain by encouraging long-lasting healing of your sports injury and musculoskeletal conditions. PRP therapy is a non-surgical procedure that provides an alternative treatment for athletes and active individuals who are suffering from chronic pain and tendon injuries.
PRP injections are made from concentrating platelets found in your blood. A small sample of blood is taken from you, processed in a medical device then concentrated to create a growth factor-rich solution of platelets and plasma. PRP combats pain and boosts healing by repairing damaged tendons or cartilage. PRP can be injected directly into your injured body part during a simple in-office procedure.
