Sports Medicine/Injury Treatment Q & A


 


How does regenerative medicine apply to sports medicine therapy?

Regenerative medicine is a state-of-the-art approach to maximizing your performance and healing sports injuries. Dr. Ghaly uses innovative, outpatient procedures to stimulate your body’s own cells to heal injured tissue. Regenerative medicine therapies include joint injections of platelet-rich plasma, enhanced external counterpulsation treatment, brain performance and concussion testing, and micronutrients and metabolic testing.

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?

Platelets are a component of your blood that facilitates clotting and contains numerous healing factors. By drawing some of your own blood, spinning it down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting this platelet-rich plasma into damaged joints and injured tissue, Dr. Ghaly stimulates your body to heal itself. Instead of needing invasive surgery or joint repair, your body regenerates its own tissue with the assistance of the healing power of platelets.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is valid for a number of injuries, including:

  • Knee injuries, including osteoarthritis
  • Achilles injuries
  • Ligament sprains
  • Elbow tendonitis

What is EECP treatment?

Dr. Ghaly uses EECP, or enhanced external counterpulsation, therapy to boost the immune system, regenerate the cardiovascular system, and stimulate the growth of new red blood cells and platelets — all of which enhance performance.

During this procedure, you’re attached to an electrocardiograph machine. Dr. Ghaly uses cuffs he wraps around your calves, thighs, and buttocks to compress the blood vessels and increase blood flow to your heart.

What are the benefits of brain performance and concussion testing?

Athletes benefit from strong neural connections, which help them regulate energy and tolerate stress. Testing your levels of neurotransmitters, which include serotonin, dopamine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid, can help you understand the health of your brain and which therapies may improve your performance.

If you’ve chosen sports that pack a concussion risk, you could benefit from concussion testing. Dr. Ghaly will test you while you are healthy, so he has a baseline measure to use for comparison should you suffer a head injury. Concussion testing involves measuring your reaction time, speed of mental processing, and memory capacity.

What is macronutrient and metabolic testing?

Optimal nutrition is a key part of athletic performance. Dr. Ghaly offers metabolic testing that shows you how many calories you burn, a key factor in determining your weight, nutrition, and fitness goals. Plus, he can evaluate you for vitamin and mineral deficiencies and offer supplements to correct them, to further enhance your performance and energy.
