Stay in the Game: Sports Injury Solutions

by | Jun 14, 2017 | Regenerative Medicine

For athletes, runners, dancers, and other active individuals, any time off from your sports of choice is too long. We get it: sitting by the sidelines is no fun, whether you play alone or have teammates counting on you. Yet try to do too much, or play through pain when you know you shouldn’t, and your injury will only get worse, and your recovery longer.

At Omega Medical Group, we understand how badly you need to keep up with the game. That’s why we offer a variety of advanced regenerative medicine techniques to help you heal fast and keep you as active as possible throughout your recovery. One such technology we offer, for example, is Clarix Flo.

This injectable material is made from voluntarily donated placental tissue, specifically the amniotic membrane and umbilical cord. Ordinarily this material would be discarded after birth, but it has powerful regenerative properties that can be used by others to heal soft tissue injuries and inflammatory conditions—plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, . When a mother voluntarily chooses to donate this tissue, it is rigorously screened, cleaned, and processed to create the Clarix Flo.

When injected into the site of injury, Clarix Flo promote your body’s own natural healing processes, allowing your body to repair itself more quickly. That’s crucial for athletes, who want the best treatments with the quickest healing time and highest success rates, so they can get back in the game as soon as possible. Even for non-athletes, Clarix Flo is a powerful alternative for those who may not have found relief from more traditional conservative treatments, as it can successfully relieve even the most stubborn chronic injuries without resorting to surgery.

Other treatments that may be considered might include other high-tech regenerative solutions such as platelet-rich plasma therapy, total contact orthotics that accommodate foot flaws which can lead to injury, or surgery using minimally invasive techniques to facilitate quicker healing. Each treatment option is discussed at length with every patient and a plan is customized to meet your individual needs—we won’t ever push you into something you don’t need or isn’t appropriate for you.
