New York Sports Medicine Offers Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy For Treatment of Injury
Date:3/23/2010

Cutting-edge procedure is now available for the treatment of acute injuries and chronic conditions affecting soft tissues, such as tendons and ligaments.

New York (PRWEB) March 23, 2010 -- New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, a leading provider of physical medicine and rehabilitation services in the metropolitan New York area, is pleased to announce the introduction of a cutting-edge treatment aimed at promoting recovery from acute sports-related injuries, as well as chronically painful conditions such as tendonitis, tennis elbow, and other conditions affecting tendons and ligaments.

The treatment, known as Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, or PRP, is an exciting new advance in the realm of sports medicine that shows promise in speeding up recovery, restoring function, and diminishing pain more quickly than other more traditional treatments. PRP may also be the key to keeping some patients out of the operating room.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is a non-surgical procedure in which a small quantity of a patient’s blood is extracted and then run through a centrifuge in order to separate out the platelets. A concentrated dose of the patient’s own platelets, which are known to possess growth promoting qualities, are then injected back into the area of injury to promote the accelerated re-growth of soft tissue and bone cells. This process is intended to promote faster and more effective healing and is based on the natural healing ability of the human body.

A major benefit to the procedure is that there are virtually no side effects, since a patient’s own blood is utilized during the procedure.

Dr. Michael J. Neely, D.O., a licensed medical professional and the owner of New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, is excited by the possibilities this new cutting-edge treatment has to offer his patients.

“Platelet rich plasma therapy has been used on a number of professional athletes in recent years with promising results,” explains Dr. Neely. “The natural healing qualities found in blood platelets appear to ‘jump start’ the body into regenerating new tissue when introduced in an area of injury and this added boost to the body’s system is offering some patients quicker and more effective recovery from soft tissue injuries, especially those affecting tendons and ligaments, as well as diminished pain from chronic conditions. To be able to offer a treatment that can accelerate the healing process and potentially keep patients out of the operating room and that does not come with a laundry list of side effects is a major advance in the field of physical medicine.”

New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy treats patients with many sports-related and physical injuries and chronic conditions. They are committed to remaining at the forefront of advances in the fields of sports medicine and physical therapy and focus on combining cutting-edge treatments with a proven and traditional philosophy.

“Our goal at NY SportsMed is to get our patients back to a level of activity that is comfortable for them, and to do it in the most effective and safest way possible,” explains Dr. Neely. “PRP is one more opportunity that we can now utilize as medical professionals in order to help our patients get better faster.”
