At ActiJoint, our services extend beyond osteoarthritis to all types of orthopedic issues including sports injuries. When you make an appointment, we will take x-rays of the injured site, perform an exam, and discuss with you the best possible treatments for your specific case. Together, you and one of our providers will determine the best plan for you. Common treatment options include platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and advanced cellular therapy. We also offer cortisone injections, which can be helpful in managing pain; however, cortisone doesn't treat the cause of pain, and should be used infrequently.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an innovative therapy in the field of regenerative biologics, a field dedicated to discovering and perfecting treatment options to harness your body’s own power to heal itself. Professional athletes like Tiger Woods and Hines Ward have used PRP to accelerate and augment their natural healing processes. These athletes received PRP therapy after experiencing injuries that should have sidelined them for months. Instead, they’ve experienced faster recovery times thanks to PRP treatments. If PRP is not sufficient to treat an injury, advanced cellular therapy are more powerful and may be the next best option.
Call and schedule an appointment with one of our providers to see if PRP or advanced cellular therapy can help your sports or joint injuries.
Unfortunately, because of the increased risk in injecting near the neck and spine, we do not treat these joints; however, we can refer you to one of our trusted spine specialists.
