Treatments & Services
Sports-Related Concussion Management
A sports-related concussion, formerly a mild traumatic brain injury, is a brain traumatic brain injury induced by biomechanical forces. Common causes include a direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body that causes a violent shaking of the head. Concussions are common when playing a contact sport, such as football.
Osteopathic manipulative is hands-on care, commonly used to treat muscle pain. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Providers move muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
PRP injections are made from a person’s own blood. Platelets clot, which promotes healing in wounds and soft tissue where it may have been failing otherwise.
Athletes and non-athletes experience common pain conditions such as arthritis and tendinitis. Ultrasound guided injections help treat these and other issues in many parts of the body. Injections to help with injury include corticosteroid, prolotherapy, and platelet-rich-plasma.
