  • Concussions and concussion management
  • Pre-participation physical assessments to determine safety of engaging in specific sport related activities
  • Return-to-play decisions for the sick or injured athlete

Corticosteroid

(cortisone) injections are oftrn used to relieve pain and inflammation.
Also known as hyaluronate, this is an essential component of normal joint fluid. This "joint jelly" has been produced synthetically and can easily be injected as a single shot into nearly any osteoarthritic joint to supplement the existing synovial fluid. This provides partial pain relief for 6 to 12 months in about 80% of joints with mild to moderate osteoarthritis. The only apparent risk is infection but this is rare (1 in 10,000 chance) and is the same risk as any joint injection.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy supports faster healing of soft tissue injuries of tendons, ligaments and muscles. It uses the body’s own blood to naturally stimulate tissue and wound healing and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatment, like surgery. The PRP procedure involves drawing blood and placing it in a centrifuge where it is spun down and separated into layers. This yields a set of growth factors and platelets with three to five times the concentration found in normal blood. This is injected into the injured area, where it may help to shorten recovery time, decrease pain and improve performance in the injured area.
