What are treatments for sports injuries? 

The team may recommend a combination of treatments. 

Shockwave therapy 

If you’ve sustained an injury to a tendon, elbow, or hamstring, high-energy and low-energy shockwave treatments can help you heal by sending pulses of energy to the injured area. 

Shockwave therapy can increase circulation around injured soft tissues, stimulate cells that generate new tissue, and reduce pain by overstimulating nerve endings in the injured area. 

PRP injections 

Blood is mainly a liquid called plasma, but it also contains platelets — crucial in clotting blood and healing injuries. 

During a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection, your provider draws your blood, then separates your blood’s platelets from the other cells and increases their concentration. 

They then inject this higher concentration of platelets into the injured site. This process aims to speed up recovery time. 


During prolotherapy, your provider injects a sugar or saline substance into your injured joint or muscle. Your body recognizes this as an irritant, creating inflammation that causes your body to send immune cells and chemicals to the area. 

This additional inflammation can promote your body’s natural healing process. 

IV therapy 

An IV drip can include helpful vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and antioxidants that improve dehydration, inflammation, immunity levels, and fatigue during recovery.
