Whether you have an old or new injury, our treatments are proven and have been used to help thousands of patients recover fully.

Below are some of the most common conditions that can be caused by injuries and the treatments we offer that can help you heal. There is no such thing as one size fits all when treating each individual patient, but treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Prolotherapy may be recommended for these injuries, depending on the type, severity, and age of the injury.

  • An ACL injury can be caused by sudden twisting or pivoting movements while the foot is planted on the ground or from direct impact to the knee during sports activities such as basketball or football. 
  • An Achilles injury can be caused by sudden acceleration, deceleration, or a direct blow to the back of the heel. It is commonly seen in sports such as running, basketball, and tennis.
  • Injuries that can cause a labral tear include falls, direct blows to the joint, and repetitive motions that put stress on the joint, such as those commonly seen in athletes who engage in overhead throwing or weightlifting activities.
  • ligament tear is often sustained by sudden twisting or pivoting movements or from a direct impact to the joint, such as in a sports injury or car accident.
  • An MCL injury can be caused by a direct blow to the knee or by sudden twisting or pivoting movements while the foot is planted on the ground during sports activities such as football or soccer.
  • meniscus tear can happen with sudden twisting or pivoting movements while the foot is planted on the ground or from a direct impact to the knee during sports activities such as basketball or soccer.
  • Patellar tendonitis, also known as jumper’s knee, is caused by repetitive jumping activities such as long jumping, basketball, or volleyball and by sudden changes in direction during sports activities such as soccer or football.

Other conditions and issues can arise from old injuries or repetitive motions. Below are some injuries that can cause these conditions, which might be treated with PRP, Prolotherapy or Hyaluronic Acid.

  • Arthritis can be caused by an injury, especially if the injury affects the joint. Injury-related arthritis is called post-traumatic arthritis. An injury that damages the joint or changes the joint’s structure or alignment can increase the risk of developing arthritis. Examples of injuries that can cause arthritis include:
    • Fractures that affect the joint
    • Dislocations that damage the cartilage or joint surface
    • Ligament injuries that cause joint instability
    • Meniscus tears in the knee that lead to cartilage damage
    • Damage to the joint caused by repeated injuries or stress, such as those seen in athletes or laborers who perform repetitive activities.
  • Carpal tunnel is caused by repetitive motions of the wrist and hand, such as typing or assembly line work, or trauma to the wrist, such as a sprain or fracture. You may be prescribed therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Prolotherapy, or Perineural Therapy to heal your carpal tunnel.
  • An injury, such as a fracture or dislocation, can cause joint pain. Sprains and strains can also stretch or twist a joint, causing damage to the ligaments, tendons, or muscles around the joint.  This condition can be caused by wear and tear on the joints over time or by injury to the joint, such as a fracture or dislocation.
  • Golpher’s elbow is most commonly seen in golfers, from the repetitive gripping and swinging motions. It can also be the result of a direct impact to the elbow. To treat gopher’s elbow, your integrative medical professional may prescribe Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Prolotherapy, or Perineural Therapy.
  • Repetitive strain injuries can be caused by repetitive motions in the workplace, such as typing or assembly line work, or repetitive motions in sports activities, such as tennis or golf. Traumeel may also be an effective treatment for RPIs. 

Many other conditions can be caused by injuries due to sports, a car accident, fall or head trama.

  • Back pain or a herniated disc can be caused by poor posture, lifting heavy objects improperly, or a sudden traumatic injury such as a fall or a car accident. For these types of injuries and conditions you doctor may suggest a Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, followed by Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Prolotherapy.
  • Some tyGolfer’snjuries may lead to migranes or chronic headaches include head trauma, concussions, whiplash injuries, and cervical spine injuries. In some cases, these injuries can cause structural damage or inflammation to the tissues in the head and neck. Treating chronic headaches can be difficult, but the use of a Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy have shown proven results. 
  • Neck pain as well as pinched nerves are conditions can be caused by poor posture, trauma to the neck such as a whiplash injury from a car accident, or sports injury. To alleviate the symptom of neck pain from an injury, it may be suggested that you undergo Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, Prolotherapy, and/or Traumeel.
  • Postural problems can be caused by poor posture habits over time or from a sudden traumatic injury such as a car accident or a fall. In addition to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Prolotherapy, 
  • Sciatica is caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the legs. Injuries that can lead to sciatica include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or spondylolisthesis. These injuries can be caused by various factors, such as lifting heavy objects incorrectly, repetitive bending or twisting, poor posture, or even pregnancy. In some cases, sciatica can also be caused by tumors, infections, or nerve damage. Your doctor could suggest a Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to get to the root of the problem, followed by Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or  Prolotherapy.
