With the summer in full swing your activity level is likely up or you may have limitations and looking for an edge to get back to those activities. Most people we see either injure their shoulder after long periods of gardening, injury their knee from hiking, running on the beach or playing many sessions of tennis or basketball.
Others injure their back when lifting or competing in events.
The current approach is to rest and treat with heat, ice or pain medications – because we heard to do that somewhere – and hope it resolves on its own.
However, some cases do become chronic from the very thing we’re using to help! Read: excessive icing, NSAID medications or cortisone shots.
Physical Therapy can be extremely beneficial but it’s important to know that it also has limitations.
While great for addressing the muscles, physical therapy is unable to repair a laxed ligament, tear, or inflamed nerve. How do you know your physical therapy needs a little support? The exercises are painful.
Why Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Ozone Therapy is best for pain relief?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Ozone Therapy is a simple, non-invasive procedure that provides superior pain relief for the common injuries that summertime can bring about from excess yard work or weekend warrior activities. They stimulate our own body’s healing mechanisms
Which injuries can be treated with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Ozone Therapy
Almost any! Think knee pain, shoulder, hip, back, neck, ankles, wrists, rotator cuff injuries, etc.
We find so many of our patients benefit from this treatment –with no down time!
You may have heard of PRP being used by many athletes such as Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods and many more.
So, what is PRP?
I encourage you to watch our videos on PRP and Regenerative Injections.
- We use your own platelets which release growth factors during an injury.
- We stimulate these platelets to think there is an injury
- Then we inject those growth factors back into the site of weakness or injury.
It is that simple but has profound results in healing old and new injuries.
We love seeing people get out of pain and back to the activities they love to do quickly. So if you or you know someone who could benefit from this procedure please let them know about this therapy that we offer.
