Treating the Professional Athlete at CARE Esthetics in Jupiter, Florida

Your desire to compete and win drives you to push yourself to new heights. While this desire is at the root of impressive performances and personal records, neglecting pain thresholds and dangerous conduct puts you at risk of sustaining a new or reoccurring injury. These injuries may have long-term consequences, such as severe pain and suffering and the inability to compete or engage in professional sporting activity. However, when it comes to enhancing your athletic training, willpower alone may not be sufficient. Discover how PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) and PRF (platelet-rich-fibrin) injections heal your body naturally. At the center for advanced rejuvenation and esthetics (CARE) in Jupiter, FL, we provide a range of non-surgical orthopedic therapies for the professional athlete that will help you enhance your strength and peak health. The sooner you book your consultation, the sooner you can get back into the game.

Common sports injuries of professional athletes and how PRP/PRF can help

It is not in your wheelhouse to sit on the sidelines or live with pain and limited range of motion as a result of an injury! At CARE we strive to provide the best sports medicine Jupiter has to offer. With proper Professional Sports Medicine, you can continue to compete at your demanding physical level and experience comfort and mobility. The following are some of the most common sports-related injuries we treat here at the Center for Advanced Rejuvenation and Esthetics (CARE):

Golfer’s elbow

The elbow joint is a crucial functional component of the upper extremity. Tennis players and golfers often have elbow discomfort. Ligamentous instability or overuse of the ligaments that stabilize the elbow joint are common causes. PRF injection and adequate rehab may help restore normal ligament function, relieve discomfort, and restore function. The condition must be handled as soon as possible, rather than waiting until irreversible structural damage happens to the whole elbow joint.

Tennis elbow

Giving a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) injection for lateral elbow tendinopathy (also known as tennis elbow) may reduce pain and symptom relief.

Muscle injuries

In the case of muscular injuries, research shows that the use of autologous conditioned serum and PRP/PRF may help speed up the healing process.

Knee pain

Players suffering from patellar tendinitis (Knee tendon pain) may benefit from PRF treatment, which is both safe and promising. In an effort to determine its involvement in tendon-related injuries, researchers discovered that injecting PRF into the knee is a positive step in treating patellar tendonitis. The introduction of cytokine and growth factor-rich plasma to your knee results in visible improvements seen on an MRI. It is also worth mentioning that PRF helps with pain and inflammation.

Rotator cuff surgery recovery

PRP/PRF treatment helps speed up the healing process for athletes with mild to moderate rotator cuff injuries. In addition, rotator cuff injury sufferers have found PRP/PRF treatments to relieve their pain effectively.

Tendonitis in the Achilles tendon

The Achilles tendon is responsible for linking the calf to the heel, which is a critical function. Achilles tendinitis is more common among runners, football players, and other athletes who engage in high-impact sports. According to one study, long-term use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may help to reduce the symptoms of chronic Achilles tendinitis.

Ligament tear

Many physicians advocate surgery after an ACL, LCL, or MCL injury, but an operation on your knee is both intrusive and invasive. However, it is possible to repair tears without surgery with non-surgical Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. While this treatment has a high success rate, it cannot guarantee your total recovery. However, it does have a reasonable probability of speeding up the repair of the damage, so physical therapy is the only thing that may be required to complete your healing process. Platelet-rich-plasma therapy is utilized as a safe and successful alternative to knee surgery.

What are the benefits of PRP/PRF Treatments?

Athletes don’t want to find themselves in a situation where they’ve been injured. PRP/PRF technology, on the other hand, may be able to assist in such a scenario. There have been more than 20 years of PRP (or platelet-rich plasma) treatment in use in the medical community. Ultimately, this autologous extract may significantly impact the pro-athlete since the platelets can be used as a medical sports therapy. PRP/PRF treatments are safe and effective as a pain-relieving and therapeutic approach.

What is the difference between PRP and PRF?

High-speed centrifugation is used to extract platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from blood. First, the blood’s red, white, and stem cells are separated into two layers, with the heavier red, white, and stem cells sinking to the bottom. Meanwhile, the top layers of an anticoagulant-containing tube encompasses lighter platelets and plasma. PRF has evolved into much more of a successful therapy for treating professional athletes, with far better long-term outcomes. It's made by centrifuging blood at a lower speed, which separates the blood into layers without the use of anticoagulant chemicals.

Additional Reading

This allows specific white cells, growth factors, stem cells, and platelets to be collected from a tube without the need of additional chemicals that prevent clotting. Many physicians and orthopedic professionals regard PRF to be the future in professional sports medicine.
