Sports-related injury treatment with Dynamic Osteopaths in Solihull
It’s amazing to see performance athletes pushing the boundaries of what the human body is capable of. Unfortunately any level of athlete can become injured. As standard initial care and treatment Dynamic Osteopaths recommend rest, manual therapy and a specific rehabilitation programme. It’s becoming more clear that anti-inflammatories and steroid injections do not help heal injuries. That’s where biological cell based therapies in Regenerative Medicine such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells have been applied.
You may well hear lots of stories about athletes receiving PRP treatment for acute injuries. But the good news is these treatments are also available for regular folks and amateur athletes with chronic injuries. The mechanism of action and benefit of prp is likely different depending on the nature of the injury. For acute muscle and tendon injuries, the increased growth factors produced by PRP accelerates the healing process. It is understood that the increased growth factors produced by PRP have increased efforts into kick starting a stalled healing process in chronic injuries too. Research in to the exciting field is ever growing.
