Sport Medicine Specialists
Sports Medicine Specialists are musculoskeletal medicine specialists, fellowship trained to care for adults, children and athletes. Anyone with a musculoskeletal injury or problem can benefit, as the same expertise used for competitive athletes can be applied to return the individual as quickly as possible to full function.
Sports Medicine Specialists are also excellent resources for those who wish to become active or begin an exercise program.
Ultrasound technology is rapidly revolutionising the way medicine is practiced at the point of care. It is currently utilised as an integral tool in multiple specialties including emergency medicine, anaesthesia, neurology, general surgery, endocrinology, physical medicine, rheumatology, paediatrics and family medicine. Utrasound can be a cost-effective diagnostic tool in the evaluation of the patient with MSK pain and this has opened up new opportunities for both diagnostic and therapeutic interventions performed at the point of care.
PRP Musculoskeletal Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a groundbreaking innovation in regenerative medicine. The treatment uses the patient’s own (autologous) blood, drawn and separated to create a concentrate extremely rich in platelets, which is then injected into a treated area of the body to trigger or accelerate the body’s own healing and regenerative response.
PRP injections are used in sports medicine in the treatment of injuries of ligament, tendon, muscle and joint. While traditional therapies do not address the problem of the naturally poor healing properties of connective tissue and do not stimulate muscle recovery, and in some cases can even cause serious adverse effects, PRP injections stimulate and enhance the body’s natural healing processes and can shorten healing time. Since the PRP treatment uses the patient’s own blood which neither can be rejected by the body nor cause harm to it, there are no adverse effects of PRP.
Doctor, can acupuncture help my condition?
The best answer will come from an experienced practitioner. The practitioner, based on your medical history, condition, and what other treatments you have been or are receiving, can best help you decide whether acupuncture is suitable by itself or in combination. If your treatment, according to a American diagnosis with options, is not resolving the problem, is quite expensive, or has significant side effects/hassles associated with it, then clearly acupuncture is worth a try. For example, it is ridiculous to treat someones dizziness with acupuncture if what they need is to have excessive wax cleaned out from their ear canals. On the other hand, if one is having difficulty controlling or improving one’s back pain with American treatments, a trial of acupuncture makes utmost sense. In these cases, acupuncture may be an excellent complement to routine care, often minimizing or altogether eliminating the need for medications, releasing the patient from continuous exacerbation-remission cycle.
Nerve Conduction Testing
Nerve conduction testing is used to evaluate the function of the motor and sensory nerves in the human body. It helps determine blocks, dysfunctions or damage that may contribute to pain, numbness, tingling, burning, weakness of the arms or legs, or when there is a concern about a possible neurologic injury or disorder.
