Participating in sports is an excellent way to stay healthy, maintain your weight, and boost your energy and mood. However, running, jumping, and the occasional sports accident can increase your risk for degenerative conditions and painful acute injuries. Some common sports injuries include:
Your risk of a sports injury increases if you don’t warm up or cool down correctly, or if you don’t wear the appropriate protective gear. Also, if you increase the amount or intensity of exercise you do too rapidly, your chances of injury are higher.
Sports medicine specialists have extensive training in anatomy and musculoskeletal function. They not only assess and treat sports and fitness injuries but also provide customized advice and physical therapy plans to enhance your performance and reduce your risk of injury.
You should see a sports medicine specialist at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine if you have a sports-related injury that doesn’t subside with a couple of days of rest and at-home care. If you have an acute traumatic injury, don’t delay treatment, contact the team at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine right away.
Most sports injuries are musculoskeletal in nature. Regenerative medicine is designed to accelerate your body’s ability to heal itself, which makes it a potentially critical part of your recovery.
The physicians at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and stem cell therapy. PRP is a serum that’s made from a sample of your blood that’s rich in the growth factors and cytokines your body uses in its repair processes. Stem cells are the cellular building blocks of your body, as they can turn into whatever type of cell your body needs.
The physicians at Integrity Center For Regenerative Medicine often combine PRP and stem cell therapy to treat sports injuries. The combination of the cells you need to repair injured tissue and the cells that fuel the repair process can help you recover from your injury quickly and safely.
