Non Surgical Orthopedic Therapy: A Growing Trend

Treatment of common orthopedic conditions with non surgical therapy is becoming an increasing viable option among professional athletes.  Here are some examples.

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu underwent PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections in 2009.

Tiger Woods received PRP injections in Canada in 2010.

Superbowl Champion Jarvis Green underwent Regenexx C Regenexx SD  in 2010 and subsequently signed with the Houston Texans.

Yankees’ Bartolo Colon underwent bone marrow and adipose stem cell injections in 2011.

Kobe Bryant received PRP injections in Germany in 2011.

The Centeno-Schultz Clinic offers non-surgical treatment options for hip, knee, ankle, shoulder pain.  Treatment options include PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cells derived from blood (Regenexx SCP), adipose (Regenexx AD) and bone marrow (Regenexx SD).    Treatment involves the injection of prescribed regenerative agent into the damaged tissue under direct visualization utilizing either ultrasound or x-ray of both.

Dr. Allan Mishra, a professor of orthopedics at Stanford University acknowledges the potential of regenerative treatments.  “I think it’s fair to say that platelet-rich plasma has the potential to revolutionize not just sports medicine but all of orthopedics.

Elimination of surgical risks and the often extensive rehabilitation is a home run to professional athlete and weekend warriors alike.
