Performance Rehabilitation offers many solutions for a sports related achilles injury
  • Regenerative Medicine:The stem cell treatment process involves extracting regenerative cells from the patient’s body and then injecting the cells directly into the affected area of the Achilles Tendon. The cells can transform into the type of cell necessary for healing. The addition of platelet rich plasma (PRP) can increase the effectiveness of the cell repair work by amplifying the activity of the regenerative cells. Stem cell treatment is a safe alternative to surgery since the procedure will only use the stem cells and platelets from the patient’s own body. This means that anybody, regardless of their age, could undergo stem cell treatment.
  • Pain Management: A cortisone injection into the injured tendon may reduce pain and accelerate the rehabilitation process.
  • Chiropractic: Chiropractic management utilizes manual therapy and therapeutic exercise in an effort to diminish pain and inflammation, promote tendon healing, improve strength, enhance flexibility and control functional stresses.
  • Physical Therapy: A complete rupture may require surgery. Following surgery, physical therapy can help aid in recovery. Treatment includes: range of motion exercises, ankle and lower extremity strengthening exercises, stretching, soft tissue mobilization, modalities, gait training, balance training, and activity specific training.
