Sports Injuries Q&A
When should I talk to a doctor about sports injuries?
When you’re training hard and competing, you put a lot of physical stress on your body. Combined with sudden direction changes, collisions, and other movements that can cause abnormal twists and pressure on your body, your risk of injury increases.
Whether you’re an amateur, student, or professional, you can experience acute injuries such as sprains, fractures, and dislocations. You might also develop repetitive use injuries, including tendonitis or bursitis.
You should make an appointment with Dr. Penhollow when you know you’ve sustained an acute injury, or if you have persistent pain that doesn’t get better with rest or at-home care.
What are the available treatments for sports injuries?
Dr. Penhollow specializes in regenerative medicine and pain management to help your body recover from sports injuries. She offers personalized treatment programs to relieve your pain, heal your body, and help you get back to training and competing.
Depending on your needs, your sports injury treatment program could include:
Dr. Penhollow has many years of experience in using fluoroscopy and ultrasound-guided injections to relieve joint and back pain.
EmSculpt is a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment that uses high-intensity, focused electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle tissue production. It can increase your core strength as well as support around weak or injured joints.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
PRP is a type of regenerative medicine that floods injured tissue with platelets. Platelets carry the proteins and growth factors your body needs to produce new cells to repair damaged tissue.
Bone marrow therapy
Bone marrow therapy is another type of regenerative medicine. Dr. Penhollow collects bone marrow from your PSIS (posterior superior iliac spine) on the back side of your pelvis. She separates the cells using a centrifuge to concentrate the Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), growth factors, and anti-inflammatory mediators that your body uses for tissue repair. This cell therapy is injected precisely using ultrasound and or fluoroscopic imaging right at the site of your injured tissue. Targets include joints and the spine.
Prolotherapy is an injection of a solution that irritates your tissue and triggers your body’s natural healing response.
Injury rehabilitation and prevention
In addition to pain management and regenerative therapies, Dr. Penhollow also offers rehabilitation services to help you rebuild your strength, flexibility, and endurance after an injury. Often, rehabilitation can enhance your performance and help prevent future injury.
How do I know which treatment is right for me?
Dr. Penhollow takes a holistic approach to medicine and performs comprehensive exams and consultations. Her goals include diagnosing and evaluating your sports injury and understanding your lifestyle and other factors that affect your overall wellness and risk of injury.
Dr. Penhollow uses this information to create the best treatment plan to address your specific needs. She explains your condition and your options, helping you make informed decisions about your treatment.
