What kinds of sports injuries do the medical professionals at Golden State Medical Center treat?
Most sports injuries fall into two classes, Acute (meaning the injury just happened) or Chronic (meaning the patient has had the injury for a while). Acute sports injuries can be strains of muscles, sprains of ligaments, tears of muscles, ligaments, or tendons, cartilage, broken bones, head trauma, etc. Chronic sports injuries tend to be overuse injuries that have been developing for some time (examples would be over-training in the gym with weights, long-distance running bicycling, etc.). These injuries usually develop from training errors (e.g. over-training (not enough rest), poor technique, or the development of muscle imbalance). They often result in chronic sprain/strain injuries, muscle impingement syndromes, patellar tracking problems, tendinitis, etc.

How does regenerative medicine help patients with sports injuries?
Current research suggests that HCTP and PRP can help decrease inflammation and increase regeneration of tissue. HCTP and PRP are both naturally occurring and have no known side-effects. Sports injuries can be quite debilitating. It is the hope of researchers that regenerative medicine can help speed up the healing process.

How does physical rehabilitation therapy help sports injuries?
Muscle imbalance is a common cause of sports injuries. If not corrected immediately, it may result in chronic pain and disability. Physical rehabilitation therapy can help to strengthen the weak musculature and stretch the tight musculature correcting the muscle imbalance. Sports injuries can also result in muscle atrophy leading to more injuries. Physical rehabilitation therapy can help to resolve the muscle weaknesses caused by the sports injury.
How is regenerative medicine a breakthrough for sports injury sufferers?
Sports injury sufferers can become dependent on taking pain relief medications to get through their training program or even just get through their daily lives. These pain medications have many side-effects that can create more health problems. Regenerative medicine is natural and appears to be a more effective approach for not only pain relief, but to reduce inflammation, and regenerate healthier tissues without the dangerous side-effects of pain medications. This revolutionary treatment has the potential to get you back to your activities quicker and with more complete healing. If you are tired of depending on prescription drugs and you have had a sports injury that prevents you from fully enjoying your life, regenerative medicine treatments may be the right solution for you.
