Regenerative Sports Medicine
Though great progress has been made in medicine, current evidence-based and palliative treatments are increasingly unable to keep pace with patients' needs. There are few effective strategies to treat the root causes of many sports injuries. In many cases, clinicians have been able to only manage patients' symptoms using medications or devices. Regenerative Sports Medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues such as ligaments, tendons and muscle, offering solutions and hope for people who have sports injuries that had previously been beyond repair without the enormous risk of surgical interventions.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are painful spots in the muscle tissue that radiate pain to other areas. A trigger point is an indication that the body has experienced some form of physiological dysfunction, such as poor posture, repetitive mechanical stress, a mechanical imbalance such as leg length discrepancy, or acute trauma.
Prolotherapy is a well-established procedure that stimulates the body's natural ability to strengthen damaged or weak ligaments, tendons and joints. "Prolo" is short for proliferation. The treatment is considered "Prolo" therapy because it causes proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament or tendon tissue in areas where they have become weak.
Neural Therapy is a gentle, healing technique that involves injection into scars, acupuncture points, trigger points, and other tissues. Neural therapy is based on the theory that any trauma, infection, or surgery can damage the autonomic nervous system and produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical or electromagnetic functions of tissues.
Acupuncture is a form of ancient Chinese medicine in which find, sterile needles are applied to specific areas of the body, or acupoints, to stimulate energy flow (or "chi"). Energy is believed to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. When the flow of energy is disturbed or off-balance, pain or illness may occur. A goal of acupuncture is to restore balance and healthy energy flow to the body.
