Do you play contact sports regularly? If so, you’ve likely incurred or witnessed sports injuries. These injuries are all too common if you participate in rough activities. Often, an ice pack is enough for a minor injury, and a visit to urgent care may be needed for a serious concern. However, Collagen Induction Therapy is a good method to try when it comes to long-lasting injuries such as damage to your joints. This treatment uses your own plasma to encourage healing, ease your pain, and improve long-term function. Schedule an appointment at our Los Angeles office today to learn more.
What Causes Sports Injuries?
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.
Treatment for Sports Injuries
Collagen Induction Therapy 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 plasma is readied and injected back into the body at the injury site. The entire process typically takes less than an hour to perform.
What Results Can I Expect?
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 office. When you consult with Dr. Aronowitz, he will explain what you can expect from a CIT injection and what kind of results these injections can provide long-term.
