Quickly becoming the treatment of choice for many sports-related injuries, PRP is both effective and non-invasive.
Inglewood, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2013 -- Knee injuries are common in Basketball players as well as other sports. Recently, Dwayne Wade, of the Miami Heat Basketball Team, sought relief through Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) near the end of last season. The Releford Medical Institute (RMI) has developed a proprietary form of PRP Therapy, and has been treating sports-related knee injuries as well as other orthopedic and medical conditions. RMI reports that their new PRP Therapy speeds healing and quickly reduces pain.
During a recent interview, Dr. John Simmonds, an Orthopedic Surgeon and the Medical Director at RMI, had this to say: “Often people think surgery is the only option to resolve a knee injury. A series of PRP injections can decrease pain, and induces an inflammatory process that promotes tissue regeneration and hastens healing.”
A Releford Medical Institute’s spokesperson explains that when injected into damaged tissues, PRP has the potential to “supercharge” the healing process. Researchers at the RMI have developed proprietary methods to use PRP to treat Diabetic and HIV Neuropathy, and also use the injections in orthopedics and sports medicine to treat joint and tendon pain, ankle sprains, heel pain, non-healing wounds, plantar fasciitis, poor circulation, and many other conditions, as cited in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research (Jan. 2006). Recently, PRP therapy has made headlines due to its successful use by professional athletes like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, and Rafael Nadal.
The Releford Medical Institute was founded by its CEO, Dr. Bill Releford, and is a full-service podiatric, sports medicine, and orthopedic practice. Together with Medical Director and Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. John Simmonds, and Tissue Specialist, James Hays, the RMI provides the highest standards of medical care, and manages common and complex orthopedic conditions. Non-surgical methods are employed whenever possible, and include proprietary PRP injections, patient education, chiropractic, physical medicine, physical therapy, rehabilitative treatments, and nutrition.
Through the Releford Foot and Ankle Institute, the Releford Medical Institute is committed to healthcare outreach and advocacy. Its goals are to expand community-based health screenings through innovative partnerships, and has a longstanding commitment to reduce the diabetes-related amputation rate and provide comprehensive wound care and limb salvage services.
