Regenerative Therapies: The Evolution of Sports Medicine
What are Regenerative Therapies?
Regenerative Therapies: The Evolution of Sports Medicine. Regenerative Medicine focuses on developing methods to repair damaged cells. Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells and their role is to replace any diseased or damaged cells throughout your body and in every organ. Currently, Regenerative Medicine is considered the evolution of sports medicine.
During the last decade, there has been extensive research conducted on how to utilise the benefits of stem cells to improve care and outcomes in all specialities of medicine. Today, the majority of reputable Universities around the world now have a Regenerative Medicine Research facility.
In sports, the focus point lies on the musculoskeletal system, which has seen great success in the use of Regenerative treatments or Stem Cell Therapy in managing Sports Injuries. The likes of Tiger Woods, Christiano Ronaldo, Rafael Nadal and many others have made use of such treatments to achieve full recovery as soon as possible. Regenerative Therapy using your own Adult Stem Cells is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, same-day procedure performed under local anaesthesia, with extremely low risk and comparatively minuscule recovery time to surgical routes.
What is the rol of Regenerative Medicine in Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries can sideline you from your favourite activities – and many traditional treatments can do the same. Sports injuries can take a long time to heal, or they can never fully heal at all.
Regenerative therapies provided at Regenecare Pain Management Clinic have given patients an alternative to conventional medicine. Moreover, our groundbreaking regenerative treatments have been known to be used by professional athletes in order to dramatically shorten their downtime after severe traumas.
However, you don’t have to be a Professional Athlete or participate in a competitive sport to suffer from these injuries. We frequently attend to injuries in tendons, ligaments and muscles that arise from dog walking, daily jogs, or visits to the gym.
Sports Injuries Treated by Regenerative Medicine:
Regenerative Therapies can be used with a wide variety of sports injuries, including damage to:
Tendons: partial tears,tendinitis,tendinopathies,
Ligaments: sprains and small tears
Muscles: strains and minor tears
A single injury or Degenerative Joint disease from repetitive injury may be the case, resulting in,
Knee Pain/ Jumper’s Knee or Runner’s Knee
Shoulder Pain / Rotator Cuff injury
Back or Neck Pain
Elbow Pain/ Tennis Elbow/Golfer’s Elbow
These injuries may be the result of sudden trauma or chronic overuse. Patients with sports injuries can make use of Regenerative treatments alone or a combination of surgery followed by the Regenerative option to further enhance the recovery. Ideal candidates for the Regenerative Route or Stem Cell Treatments are those patients who cannot tolerate recommended treatments for their condition which can only be conservative, pain medications or surgery.
Although some patients may need a series of injections over several treatment sessions, rehabilitation or downtime in comparison to surgery is significantly shorter.
At Regenecare Pain Management, we base our treatments on Regenerative Medicine and have achieved excellent results doing so. Some of our most prominent sports icons that reached out for us are Richie Power, a professional Hurling player, and Ayman Yousif, a professional soccer player from Wexford F.C.
