Any athlete who has experienced a sports or overuse injury understands how troublesome the injury can be on a daily basis. Many athletes must quit training and competing in the sport they love until the injury heals. Unfortunately, certain injuries are more severe and cannot be treated with traditional at-home methods, such as the RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) method, anti-inflammatory and pain medications and modified activities. The pain specialists at OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine offer both adult stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy to candidates requiring an innovative, non-surgical treatment option.
Adult Stem Cell Therapy
Adult stem cell therapy uses a patient’s own “pluripotent” adult stem cells, or placental tissues, and not embryonic or fetal stem cells to promote tissue regeneration and to accelerate healing. Using this form of stem cell therapy, OPTIMAL can produce similar healing results without the ethical concerns of using the highly controversial embryonic stem cells.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet rich plasma therapy, or PRP, merges the latest in medical technology with the body’s natural ability to heal itself after a soft tissue injury. Human blood is composed of four main components- red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Clinical research has shown that when activated, platelets release healing proteins known as growth factors. When growth factors are directly injected into an injured area of the body, they can help accelerate the natural healing response.
Any injured Duncanville, Texas athlete interested in adult stem cell therapy or platelet rich plasma therapy is encouraged to contact the pain specialists at OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine.
