Biotherapy for Sports Injuries
Biotherapy, also called biological therapy, is a cutting-edge medical approach that harnesses the power of your body’s own immune system. It’s an exciting new field, with promising results in treating rheumatoid arthritis, Chrohn’s disease, cancer, and orthopedic pain.
As a treatment for sports injuries, biological therapies are remarkably effective. Biological therapies can restore damaged tissues within the body, and eliminate pain at its source.
What is Biological Therapy?
Biotherapy is a targeted treatment that uses substances naturally produced in your body to accelerate healing. These substances are called Biological Response Modifiers (BRMs).
Low levels of BRMs are produced when your immune system responds to a threat. The BRMs are circulated through the bloodstream to either enhance or suppress a natural immune response.
Biotherapy turbo-charges this process. We take fluids from your body and process them in them in a lab, to heighten the concentration of BRMs. The highly-concentrated compounds are then re-injected into damaged area. The injection stimulates your natural immune response and jumpstarts the healing process.
Types of Biological Therapy
Biological therapies have been revolutionary in the field of sports medicine. This type of biological therapy is also called “orthobiologics.” Orthobiologics can be astoundingly effective in healing those tricky joint, tendon, and ligament injuries that keep athletes on the sidelines.
We specialize in three types of biotherapy treatments:
- Stem Cell Therapy from Bone Marrow
- Stem Cell Therapy from Adipose (Fat) Tissue
- Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
These procedures are safe, effective, and FDA-approved for sports injuries and other orthopedic diseases. Learn more about each of these innovative procedures by clicking the links above.
What Injuries can Biotherapy Treat?
Biological therapy is a safe and effective treatment for conditions such as:
Soft tissue injuries can nag at you for months, or even years after the onset.
Biotherapy can speed up the process, getting you back on the trail, track, roads, or slopes faster, and with fewer chances of re-injury. It can also serve as an enhancer for more traditional treatments, such as surgical tendon repair or ligament reconstruction.
