The sports medicine team at Physical Medicine of the Rockies is also proud to offer our patient athletes cutting-edge, non-invasive, regenerative solutions for orthopedic injuries sustained during sports.
The types of regenerative sports medicine treatments we provide include:
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Platelet Rich Plasma involves the extraction of autologous (within your own body) tissue which is reapplied via ultrasound-guided application directly to the injury area. PRP can be an effective way to provide joint pain relief and promote healing in common injuries such as muscle tears, tendon injuries not responding to normal resting, anti-inflammatories, and physical therapy.
- Ultrasound Guidance in Diagnosis and Injection: Our providers specialize in the use of ultrasound techniques which allow them to more closely evaluate and treat injuries. Images produced through the use of diagnostic ultrasound can many times offer a look at muscle and tendon injuries that are not immediately obvious with MRI. Additionally, our providers specialize in ultrasound-guided injections which allows the stem cell tissue to be more directly applied to the area of injury.
While regenerative medicine has previously been seen as inaccessible, expensive, and only applicable to high-caliber professional athletes, these techniques are now more accessible and affordable than ever, and we’re glad to offer them to any candidate who may benefit.
