Sports medicine provides appropriate treatment plans to individuals who sustain an injury as a result of physical activity. Common reasons to visit a specialist for sports medicine include:

  • Musculoskeletal injury
  • Tennis elbow
  • Cartilage injury
  • Tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Concussion

Different sports medicine specialists offer various distinct treatments. The choice of provider and treatment plan is dependant on the specific needs of the individual patient. At The Real Gut Doctor, Dr. Mark utilizes all-natural yet effective methods of healing for sports injuries.

When you visit The Real Gut Doctor with a sports-related injury, Dr. Mark ensures that you experience an office environment that makes you feel valued and comfortable.

Dr. Mark always aims to identify and focus on the root cause of your pain and any contributing factors, such as:

  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Traumatic accidents

At The Real Gut Doctor, your sports-related injury receives a thorough evaluation. This evaluation helps Dr. Mark to determine your specific individual needs moving forward.

After your initial consultation, Dr. Mark provides you with the appropriate treatment plan that best suits your sports-related injury.

Dr. Mark is often able to provide natural alternatives to prescription medications and invasive treatments that are common for sports injuries. Fortunately, these alternative treatments do not have the same serious, long-term side-effects associated with traditional treatments such as strong anti-inflammatories and opioids.

These treatments may include modifications to your diet, an alternative exercise routine, or other suggested lifestyle changes. Dr. Mark also specializes in a specific sports medicine therapy known as Platelet Concentrate injections.

Platelet Contentrate is used to treat a range of different conditions, including sports-related injuries. Common sports-related injuries that Platelet Concentrate benefits are:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Achilles tendon ruptures

During Platelet concentrate, Dr. Mark injects a concentration of your blood platelets to speed-up the healing process of injured muscles, ligaments, and joints.

These injections supply growth factors that increase the number of reparative cells an individual’s body is capable of producing. Dr. Mark uses ultrasound imaging to guide the platelet concentrate injection and obtain optimal results.

Platelet concentrate injections may be combined with Biocellular Therapy to treat more severe conditions. This combined approach accelerates tissue regeneration in advanced degeneration.
