Sports Performance Q & A

  • PRP treatments
  • Stem cell therapy

If age-related conditions, such as arthritis, are affecting your ability to participate in the sports you love, Dr. Paziotopoulos offers custom age reversal medicine packages to boost your energy and revitalize your overall physical health.

Which therapies can help with sports injuries?

The most effective options available for sports-related injuries are stem cell therapies and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. These treatments use your body’s own natural healing ability to repair damaged ligaments, tendons, and bones.

PRP contains growth factors that repair damaged cells from the inside out. Stem cells have the special ability to regrow and multiple into any type of cell, allowing damaged areas of the body to benefit from newer, healthier cells.

What is ketamine therapy?

If you sustain an injury or develop an age-related disease that causes chronic pain, it may be difficult to enjoy your favorite sports. Ketamine therapy uses a prescription dose of ketamine, a powerful anesthetic drug that induces a deep sense of relaxation and relief from chronic pain.

Dr. Paziotopoulos offers two types of ketamine therapy. In low-dose therapy, you can receive an intravenous (IV) drip of the medication over the course of 1-3 hours up to three times a week for two weeks to alleviate chronic pain. This low-dose therapy is also effective for breaking the cycle of depression.

If chronic pain doesn’t respond to low-dose therapy, Dr. Paziotopoulos can recommend a high-dose ketamine IV, which you receive under the close supervision of a psychotherapist for your safety.

What conditions can IV therapy treat?

IV therapy delivers high-quality vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream, so you can feel the immediate effects of treatment. This type of therapy can be useful in treating a variety of issues athletes face, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Chronic pain
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Recovery from injury or illness

IV therapy can also be an effective resource for preparing for the big game or helping you recover from an intense day on the field.

As an athlete, your body needs to stay in optimum condition. Schedule a sports performance consultation with The Pazio Institute by calling the West Loop office or using the online booking feature.
