What does a Sports Medicine Physician Treat?

A Sports Medicine Physician specializes in the care of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as acute injuries and illness that affects one's performance and lifestyle.

Such conditions include:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Tendonitis

  • Sprains & Strains

  • Fractures

  • Concussions

  • Physical Assessments

  • Other Athletic illnesses

Are you in pain and waiting for elective surgery?

Due to COVID-19 the wait list for elective surgeries continues to grow. If you are suffering from joint pain and are currently waiting for joint replacement or surgery, contact our physician to discuss alternative treatment options to accommodate the increasing delay.

Injection Therapy Services:

Cortisone

A corticosteroid medication that is used to relieve pain and inflammation.     

Hyaluronic Acid

A synthetically produced medication used to restore normal joint fluid and partially relieve pain in osteoarthritic joints.  

PRP (Platelet-rich plasma)

A concentrated solution derived from the patients own blood that is injected back into the site of injury. To process PRP, whole blood is removed from the patient and separated into layers by centrifugation. Platelets and white blood cells are concentrated and used for tissue repair. It is expected that concentrating and activating the platelets and returning them to the patient at the site of injury may promote healing, reduce pain, improve function, limit inflammation, and stimulate cartilage regeneration.

nSTRIDE (APS)

An autologous protein solution derived from the patients own blood that is injected directly into the joint affected by osteoarthritis. Similar to PRP, nSTRIDE is processed through centrifugation of whole blood. It is combined with an additional concentrating system to further separate white blood cells and platelets that are specific in blocking the progression of osteoarthritis.   

With a high concentration of anti-inflammatory proteins, it is expected that pain in the joint may be reduced and joint function may be restored. The single injection treatment is designed to protect cartilage tissue and unlike traditional therapies, may also slow the progression of osteoarthritis.

"I am extremely happy with the results of the nSTRIDE injections. I have been very active with walking, running and cycling since the treatment and my knees feel great. I never think about them anymore, that has made me feel very happy!"

"I have suffered from chronic pain from moderate osteoarthritis, in my R knee for the last 4 yrs.(. consistently 3/10 ,, sometimes more so).  At night , it would wake me up , and prevent me from falling  back asleep, requiring pain medication. Since having the N- stride  in November, I no longer have any chronic pain.   It also hurts less when I walk, allowing me to walk further. My personal trainer also has noticed better strength in my R knee ,  since having had the  N- Stride injection!

Thank you Dr Arbeau and the team at Medpoint!"

“ I recently visited the Arbeau Sports Medicine Clinic at Medpoint and received an nSTRIDE injection for my knee.  Previous activities in my younger years have left my body full of aches and pains specifically in my lower limbs.  I am pleased to say the injection started working very well after a few days.  I have been very surprised and impressed by the amount of relief it has given me. I am able to walk a flight of stairs without hesitation, or fear of pain. The best part is that I am expected to have this pain relief over the next couple of years before I am due for another one.

 

If you are a looking for a treatment like this then look no further than the team over at Medpoint and the Arbeau Sports Medicine Clinic!"
