Boston Sports and Shoulder Center’s mission is to provide the highest quality and leading edge orthopedic care to our patients. This Boston orthopedic office is extremely proud to offer life-enhancing care to give our patients the active and mobile lifestyle required for healthy living and healthy aging. Our team of board-certified orthopedic surgeons is committed to providing outstanding, compassionate care to help patients recover from a broad range of injuries. We specialize in treating sports injuries and injuries to the ankle, bicep, elbow, foot, hamstring, hand, hip, knee, quadriceps, shoulder and wrist, including any workers compensation injuries. As a innovative part of our care, we offer stem cell, platelet-rich plasma and ultrasound-guided injections in our office, eliminating any inconvenience to patients of having to go elsewhere.
Our Boston orthopedic office will always seek non-surgical solutions to your sports injury when appropriate. Stem cell injection therapy is playing an important role in orthopedic regenerative medicine. Stem cells are harvested from either the patient, through bone marrow, or a young donor source. These injections are used to treat orthopedic sports injuries and degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis and rotator cuff disease. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use concentrated platelets of a patient’s own blood to enhance the healing process. They are used to treat chronic degenerative conditions of bone, tendon and cartilage, and acute sports injuries. We use ultrasound to accurately guide the needle directly to the affected area. This technique is used for cortisone, hyaluronic acid, stem cell, and PRP injections. Our complementary medicine treatments for your sports injuries have also shown tremendous promise. We offer expert muscle and skeletal therapy from a licensed acupuncturist in our Waltham office. In addition, Chinese massage therapy has helped with post-op pain management, frozen shoulder, scar tissue mobilization, muscle strain, muscle imbalance, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other nerve entrapment, plantar fasciitis, and back and neck pain. Needles, cupping therapy and cold laser therapy are used as stand alone treatments or in additional to other treatments.
Here at Boston Sports and Shoulder Center we work as a team with our patients. We assess your sports injury and discuss your treatment goals and life-style to individualize your optimum treatment. Our Boston orthopedic office is committed to providing state of the art care coupled with your input to get you back to work and play as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
