Injuries can happen to the best of us

Frequent and intense movement can naturally lead to injury. Sports injuries like tennis elbow are especially common among active athletes. While resting at home is an effective option when injury strikes, an extra bit of attention never hurts. Here at RTW Essential Wellness, we offer PRP rejuvenation treatments to help athletes recover faster.

Why do sports injuries happen?

Sports injuries can happen to anyone at any time. Pushing yourself too hard during a match or practice can lead to overtaxed muscles or painful joints. Some causes of sports-related injuries can be lifting heavy weights, overextending yourself on a run, not stretching before an activity, or tearing a muscle or ligament while engaging in contact sports.

How can RTW help me?

PRP rejuvenation can effectively address certain sports injuries that result in long-lasting complications like joint pain and tendonitis. These treatments involve a simple blood draw followed by plasma separation from the blood via a centrifuge. After the platelet-rich plasma is readied, it is injected back into the body at the injury site. The entire process typically takes less than an hour to perform.

What can I expect from the results?

In most cases, several treatment sessions and physical therapy are needed to strengthen the body after a sports injury. The extent of your treatment will need to be assessed during a visit to our practice. During your consultation at RTW, your provider will explain what you can expect from a PRP injection and what kind of results these injections can provide long-term.
