It is no secret that professional athletes have access to cutting-edge medical treatments that many average people do not. They have sport doctors in the locker room to help them stay in premium health for top performance. However, you do not need to be an athletic superstar to obtain the benefits of regenerative treatments like PRP injections – we offer them for all our patients at Regenerative Orthopaedics in New York.
If you follow sports, you may have heard that Russell Wilson, QB for the Denver Broncos, underwent a regenerative treatment for his shoulder. He complained of pain and restriction from a strained muscle injury that may have affected his performance. He reportedly sought a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection to stimulate faster healing and was back on the practice field throwing again four days after his treatment.
How PRP Injections Can Help You
While you may not have signed a contract worth hundreds of millions of dollars, you can still have the same level of medical treatment as an athletic superstar. PRP injections are not just for the rich and famous – we provide them for our patients, young and old. PRP is made from your own blood – we can take a small sample and send it through a centrifuge to filter out the platelets and growth factors that can aid in tissue repair and healing. We offer PRP injections to help with:
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Sprains and strains
- Cartilage damage
- Rotator cuff tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis/golfer’s elbow
There are many different uses for PRP injections that can help manage pain and improve performance. Whether you are a weekend warrior that is training for a 5K marathon or just want to reduce your knee arthritic pain, PRP treatments may be the solution to improving your quality of life and performance.
Everyone deserves the latest options in regenerative medicine to live their best life. Dr. Steven Struhl and our team at Regenerative Orthopaedics have innovative treatments to give you relief.
