Want To KEEP PLAYING? AESM Can Help!

Toronto PRP Injections for Sports Injuries

Our Toronto PRP Injections services are generally an outpatient procedure. They use  the patient’s blood and are designed to heal ligaments, joints, muscles and tendons. This treatment can take anywhere from just under an hour to approximately 90 minutes. We’ve added this treatment to our inventory because our main mission is to help you keep playing.

At AESM, we are proud to offer this innovative treatment technique along with a variety of others. Our goal is always to find a treatment option that best suits your needs.

If you choose these injections, there are a few best practices that will help you get the most from this method.

We suggest:

  • Avoid taking several kinds of medications for several weeks before the injections including corticosteroids.
  • Avoid several types of NSAIDs for a week before.

At AESM, we pride ourselves on having a good combination of innovative new techniques and proven traditional strategies. Finding the exact treatment regime that satisfies your exact needs is our one and only goal. The team of sports medicine physicians we have on staff is second to none.

Our qualified and dedicated team has experience with a variety of different sports including squash and hockey. They act as consultants for large hospitals in specialized areas like neuromuscular disorders. They’ve been involved with elite athletes and all have treated weekend warriors as well.

Toronto PRP Injections Procedure

At AESM, we are proud of the fact that each and every one of our sports injury treatments is thorough and complete. Of course that includes these injections. As a precaution and a way to get an accurate diagnosis, we always use proper imaging techniques.

At the beginning of the procedure blood is drawn from the patient’s body into a syringe. That blood is processed and the platelet-rich plasma is them prepared for injection.

After the injection

To maximize the effectiveness of this particular treatment, there are several follow-up procedures patients should carry out. The joint that received the injection might need to be immobilized. The patient might need to wear a brace or use crutches to keep the affected joint stable.

A cold or warm compress applied to the injection site can help to keep swelling down. Remember that here at AESM, we are always available to answer any and all of your questions about Toronto PRP injections for sports injuries. Why not get in touch with us today?
