Even relatively minor sports injuries typically need more than just rest and ice or heat to heal correctly. Whether your sports injury is minor or severe, chronic or acute, the doctors at our medical clinic will design a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Our doctors offer the most advanced therapies available for treating sports injuries. Regenerative medicine can provide incredible results for both pain relief and rebuilding your damaged tissue, so you can get back up and running again as quickly as possible. We also offer more traditional therapies such as chiropractic care and adjustments, which many of our patients combine into an overall recovery plan.
Some of the common sports injuries that can be treated with our non-surgical treatments include:
- ACL tear
- Tennis elbow
- Shin splints
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc injuries
- Herniated disc
- Sprains and strains
- Torn labrum
- Torn ligaments
- And more
We offer free consultations to help determine the right treatment plan for your specific injury. Call us today at (636) 239-5252 and let's get you you back in the game.
Chiropractic Adjustment for Sports Injuries
A healthy spine is essential to overall health. Whether or not your sports injury is directly related to your spine, a chiropractic examination and adjustment can go a long way to restoring your body’s natural state of balance. Spinal misalignment can interfere with the body’s ability to heal, even if your injury is in a seemingly unrelated area. Chiropractic adjustments are safe, non-invasive, and often deliver immediate relief.
Chiropractic adjustments gently stretches the spine to relieve pressure on the discs, allowing them to regain their natural shape. Spinal decompression can be highly effective for injuries involving the lower back or the spine's cervical section.
Regenerative Medicine Treatments for Sport Related Injuries
After a thorough examination, the doctor will explain the regenerative treatment options available to you and clarify any questions you may have.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Our clinic uses young, mesenchymal cell tissue for regenerative cell therapy. Mesenchymal cells are collected from carefully screened donors from the umbilical cords of newborns during scheduled cesarean births.
These young cells are superior to those commonly used in stem cell therapy — since those stem cells are from the patient’s own body, extracted from bone marrow or adipose tissue, and thus, are the patient's age.
As we age, our cells become less efficient. Young mesenchymal cells deliver a powerful regenerative boost when injected into your injured tissue. They can provide immediate pain relief by soothing inflammation, and then they begin to rebuild your damaged tissue right away.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma injections work under the principles of regenerative medicine. Platelets contain many growth factors that stimulate healing. When they are concentrated into platelet-rich plasma and injected into your injured tissue, they stimulate the body’s healing response.
Platelet-rich plasma costs less than mesenchymal cell injections because no donor tissue is required. It is made from a small sample of your blood. Our doctor draws just over a teaspoon of blood and uses precision technology to spin and separate the platelets from the other blood components. The plasma is then injected into the site of injury, where it promotes tissue regeneration.
All our treatments are effective for virtually any sports related injury involving the back, neck, joints (commonly the shoulder, elbow, hip, or knee), shin splints, torn ligaments, and others.
