Sports Injuries Affect Your Performance
A sports injury doctor at Sunstone Regenerative Medicine in Colorado Springs is here to help you get back to your active lifestyle.
When you have a sports injury, your first thought may be “how soon can I get back in the game?” But rebounding from your injury may take more than a little ice and rest.
At Sunstone Regenerative Medicine in Colorado Springs, we offer progressive, non-invasive biologic treatment options for many of the joint and musculoskeletal conditions that cause pain and disability.
Sports injuries have different causes. Some injuries have risk factors that you can’t change. Other types of injuries can be possibly prevented by adjusting neuromuscular patterns, fatigue and environmental factors. We encourage you to contact us as soon as
possible for an evaluation if you have encountered a sports injury.
Often it is the chronic and ongoing injuries such as persistent Golfers or Tennis Elbow, pulled hamstrings, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints that cause the most frustration for our active patients here in southern Colorado. Thankfully these conditions respond very well to biological procedures such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Platelets are our first responders to healing, so when a high concentration of platelets are administered to an affected area, advanced healing can occur with the abundance of growth factors. You can also use donated umbilical cord tissue injections for some of these types of injuries.
Using these progressive treatments early on may also help keep at bay other sequential injuries that may arise from pain that causes you to compensate and change your gait or technique.
When you come to our office for the first time, we’ll conduct a thorough orthopaedic evaluation. This includes a discussion to define your symptoms, physical examination and expert review of your radiographic studies (X-Rays and MRI). We’ll also ask you questions to find out more about your particular situation, such as your activity level and your personal goals.
The surgeon partners in our Colorado Springs clinic are all fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons. They are trained to diagnose and treat your injury with the highest level of technical and clinical expertise available.
If we determine that you could benefit from one of our non-invasive treatments, the injections are done using image guidance for maximum safety and effectiveness
The conditions that can be treated include:
- Arthritis ( knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, ankle, wrist, thumb, and other joints)
- Tendinitis ( tennis elbow, jumper’s knee, golfer’s elbow)
- Ligament tears (MCL of knee or elbow)
- Partial rotator cuff tears
