Pain in the knee

While physical activity plays an important role in one’s health, sports-related injuries prove to be a barrier to continued activity. What’s more, with warmer weather approaching in many parts of the country, individuals of all ages are participating in sporting events and activities. Thus, the likelihood of experiencing a sports injury is high, particularly for those involved in contact sports. As reported by Healthline, some of the most common types of sports-related injuries are sprains and strains, knee injuries, swollen muscles, Achilles tendon rupture, bone fractures, dislocations and rotator cuff injuries. At Advanced Healing Institute, Dr. Reza Dehdari specializes in innovative treatment for sports injuries and healing, helping individuals avoid the need for surgical intervention whenever possible.

Different injuries cause different symptoms, yet all of them result in pain, inflammation or swelling. When an injury is acute (during the first 24 to 36 hours), a reliable method for reducing pain and swelling is RICE, which stands for rest, ice, compression and elevation. In addition, over the counter medication provides temporary relief from the debilitating effects of pain and stiffness. However, the reality is—many individuals continue to suffer, even if they are disciplined to rest and care for their injury. Unfortunately, some end up having surgery with a lengthy recovery and months of rehabilitation.

Going Beyond Traditional Treatment Methods

Going beyond traditional treatment methods, Dr. Dehdari is a board certified Musculoskeletal Radiologist with extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries. As such, Dr. Dehdari explores alternatives for patients that hope to avoid surgery.

A minimally-invasive approach often used to combat pain and inflammation is a cortisone steroid injection. Cortisone shots offer important diagnostic information as well, helping confirm or deny a particular condition. In turn, the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) enhances the body’s own healing properties. A small amount of blood is drawn from a patient, and vital components of the blood mixture are separated in a centrifuge. Next, the PRP is injected into an injured tendon, joint or ligament, where it alleviates pain and maximizes healing. As an innovative and exciting treatment, AmnioFix contains a delicate, pure mix of growth factors that, when injected into an area of concern, signal cells to respond to the injury. As a result, the body’s own cells regenerate damaged tissues.

Given his expertise in musculoskeletal interventional procedures, Dr. Dehdari understands that in order to produce the greatest outcome, precision is key. Using ultrasound-imaging guidance helps ensure the exact location of the injury is being treated, and that the maximum amount of treatment is delivered.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Dr. Reza is amazing ! Im a surfer 52 years of age. I had a PRP injection done on my left hip. I highly recommend him, he is compassionate and listens to your concerns. The procedure was explained from start to finish in a very professional manner. His office staff was friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Reza, he truly wants his patients to get better !!

Went to see Dr. Dehdari for information about PRP treatment, on my hip, and he was able to explain the procedure and really explained it all very well. I had the PRP treatment performed over a month ago, and it has helped so much. Most of the pain in the hip is now gone and I no longer walk with a limp. If your looking for information about PRP, I would definitely recommend co silting with Dr. Dehdari.

I have been suffering for years with knee pain due to over use and years of playing sports. But after seeing Dr. Dehdari and getting treatment my pain is gone and I have never felt better. I am back to doing the activities I love. I got an appointment right away and he was very caring and paid attention to what I had to say.
