Sports and Musculoskeletal injuries

How can regenerative medicine help?

Injuries to muscle, bone, ligament and tendon, whether caused by an acute trauma, or from long term wear and tear, generally result in a breakdown of tissue. In many cases, the body’s ability to repair this damage can be slow, limited by medical conditions, chronic inflammation, scarring, repeat injuries and so forth. Stem-cell-based regenerative interventions can help the body repair this damage effectively by providing the growth factors and healing cells needed to build new tissue and remodel the area of injury. This contrasts with something like a corticosteroid injection, which generally helps manage pain and reduce inflammation, as opposed to stimulating actual growth, reapair and healing.

How do the the treatments work?

PRP (prolotherapy) and PRF are some of the more common regenerative interventions used for sports injuries. When the plasma is injected into the target tissue, the progenitors and cells contained in the solution begin the process of removing old and damaged cells and building a matrix of new tissue. As this matrix grows, the release of growth factors continues in response to the treatment, and the muscle, bone, ligament, nerve and soft tissues etc. in the area remodel and grow. To enhance tissue development you may be advised to continue normal use, and even gradually increase exercise and use, to further stimulate the modelling of the tissue.

Injuries

Below are some of the more common injuries treated at NuaCell. This list is by no means exhaustive, however what is important to note is that in each case an injury is examined individually before a recommendation is made for any treatment. This will generally involve a physical examination and possibly imaging such as MRI or Xray to properly diagnose the injury and identify the damaged tissue. While these treatments can reduce the need for surgery or other interventions in some cases, a holistic approach needs to be taken, considering all options that may benefit the client.

Client Reviews

Support, When Needed Most

I had three face lift and suture lift procedures for different areas of my upper, lower face and neck with Dr. Sam since 2008 and I have always been pleasantly surprised with results that exceeded my expectations. Dr. Sam is very conservative and honest and despite a complication I developed on my left cheek after the second procedure, he walked me through a very difficult recovery time and all worked out exactly as he explained to me, despite the complication.

Skin Care & Attention to Detail

I had my first Obagi Blue Peel in 2010 and I have been on the Obagi and ZO creams since. I cherish my visits to Dr. Sam and the attention to detail Zelda gives me for my skin care. I had various treatments done over the years and at least once a year I make sure to visit the Clinic to always look my very best.

Hair Loss after Cancer recovery

I was sick at a young age, and the treatment for this caused a lot of hair loss. My hair grew back, but it was much thinner than before. As the years progressed this combined with male pattern baldness and the thinning continued.

The Distance is Worth It

Very happy with everything, pain free throughout

Hi I went to see doctor Sam and had a circumision done,
I was very nervous about calling the very first day after a long time of leaving it,
After the first phone call and taking to dr Sam on the phone I felt so relaxed about the hole process, he answered all my questions and over the phone he made a plan,
I went to meet him and had everything done on the same day, and it Was pain free,
The after service is unbelievable he messages to see how your doing and checks that your happy with everything, If I knew how good he was before I went I really wouldn’t have left it go for so long as I did, he really is a top doctor and most of all so friendly and professional,
Thank you again dr Sam for everything.
