Interventional Treatments in Sports Medicine
Millions of people suffer from back and neck pain, particularly athletes. Sports injuries can cause pain that radiates from the spinal region into the arms or the legs. This can interfere with your rest at night and your activities during the day. We offer non-operational pain relief treatments, primarily through injections and innovative, regenerative, non-surgical methods. These treatments can provide relief from pain and symptoms of sports injuries and musculoskeletal disorders with no downtime.
We provide treatment for non-operative management of various orthopedic conditions, including sports injuries, osteoarthritis, back pain, and neck pain. After a comprehensive evaluation, each patient will receive a custom-tailored treatment plan.
Interventional Treatments in Sports Medicine
Dr. Roy Nini is committed to providing customized treatment plans for athletes of all ages to achieve healing and pain relief with the most effective, non-surgical methods.
Dr. Nini treats patients who have suffered sport injuries with various types of injections to reduce pain and inflammation and speed recovery.
Common injection treatments include:
The purpose of cortisone injections is to reduce inflammation, which also reduces pain. This effective treatment often works in a matter minutes.
This treatment is for mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. Hyaluronan is a naturally-occurring substance in the fluid around the joint of a normal knee. You may need several injections over a period of weeks, and optimal pain relief typically occurs several weeks after the first injection.
Trigger point injections
Trigger points are knots of muscle from which pain originates. They can be treated with injections of lidocaine (a local anesthetic), which works by breaking up the tight muscle band.
Selective nerve root blocks
A nerve root block injection can provide relief from pain that follows a single nerve. This is a temporary remedy that will need to be repeated several times a year.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is taken from your own blood, after a small amount is drawn in the office. This is plasma with a higher concentration of platelets. Platelets contain proteins that produce healing in bones, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues.
PRP injections are used in different parts of the body to reduce inflammation and relieve pain from sports injuries and musculoskeletal disorders, such as:
- Hamstring injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Calf strains
- Damaged tendons and ligaments
PRP injections are an effective, non-operative treatment that relieves pain and promotes healing. Many patients experience significant improvement immediately after PRP therapy.
Pain management plays a significant role in sports medicine in Los Angeles. Dr. Roy Nini treats patients experiencing pain through diagnostic testing and a range of pain management treatments, including medications, injections, and other therapies.
We focus on advanced management of musculoskeletal conditions. We take a multidisciplinary approach to reduce or eradicate pain, maximize function, and improve your quality of life.
Biological treatments have been shown to decrease pain, improve joint function and performance, and slow degeneration.
This type of therapy includes:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Stem cells
- Glucosamine and chondroitin
- Hormone replacement
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat various types of sports injuries, whether they are caused by trauma or overuse, including damaged:
Various methods are available to apply stem cells to the injured area, including
Injections: Stem cells are injected directly into the treatment area.
Stem cell-bearing sutures: A torn muscle, ligament, or tendon is sutured together using an absorbable, thread-like material coated in stem cells.
Surgical application: The surgeon applies stem directly to the area being repaired during surgery.
