He also understands the passion athletes have to get back to training and competition, and their need to recover quickly from injury, because he has been there. In November 2012, Dr. Fields completed his second Ironman Triathlon, beating his 2011 time by better than 14 minutes. Dr. Fields is known as The Athletic Doc®. Wouldn’t you want to be treated by a sports doctor who is also an athlete?
Our medical team finds that treating athletes is very rewarding. We can utilize a comprehensive health approach to help you reach your peak physical performance. Prolotherapy allows you to get back to training within a couple of days and does not involve periods of long recovery. Prolotherapy involves the injection of natural substances at the exact site of an injury. This stimulates the immune system to repair the sports injury. Areas often injured through sports related activities—ligaments, tendons, menisci, muscles, growth plates, joint capsules and cartilage are stimulated to heal. Anesthetics are also used to minimize any unpleasant pain.
Prolotherapy is an innovative treatment that stimulates the immune system to repair damaged tissue.”Prolo” comes from the word proliferate. Prolotherapy then, describes the therapy which utilizes proliferation of fibroblastic cells that grow the ligaments and tendons. By proliferation of the fibroblasts, new, strong, collagen tissue is formed. This new tissue is what is needed to repair ligament and tendon sprains and other sports injuries. Receive treatment for your sports injuries with comprehensive Prolotherapy at the Pacific Prolotherapy and Medical Wellness Center.
