(HealthNewsDigest.com) - New York, NY -- Jun 26, 2014 / -- Sports related injuries are incredibly common in both children and adults and can range from being mild to being very dangerous. As the numbers of sports related injuries in the population keeps increasing, it's important that these patients are carefully treated and receive the best treatment for them. With the right treatment they can properly heal and reduce the pain that often results from such injuries . No patient should have to suffer from long-term pain due to a sports related injury. The doctors at Pain Physicians NY specialize in pain management and have studied all of the available treatments for sports related injuries. Now they are offering a new and exclusive procedure for sports related injuries that is being used to treat some of the nation's biggest athletes.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an FDA approved injection procedure that uses the body's own cells to repair injury and reduce inflammation. During a PRP procedure, a small sample of blood is taken from the patient. This sample is then placed in a centrifuge where the PRP cells are isolated. Once isolated, the cells together with the plasma are then re-injected to the site of injury. This injection ensures the cells are applied directly to the underlying cause of your pain. Once these cells have been reintroduced, the natural healing process is expedited. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and requires no anesthesia.

Athletes including Kobe Bryant, Brandon Roy and Tiger Woods have traveled as far as Germany to undergo these therapies. The procedure has been used by professional sports teams in the NFL and by teams such as the New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, and more. Now, the team at Pain Physicians NY have brought these therapies to Manhattan and Brooklyn. 

Pain Physicians NY also offers several other treatment options for pain management that are minimally invasive. They use multiple approaches to solve any and all pain conditions.

Other treatment options include:

  • Interventional Pain Management
  • Pharmacological Pain Management
  • Chiropractic Work
  • Kinesis Rehab Protocol
  • Intra-Articular Laser Therapy
