Sports Medicine

, Sports MedicineCaring for an injured athlete means more than taking an x-ray and applying a brace. It requires a skilled, hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing to determine the best overall plan of care. We believe surgery is almost never the first option and can be avoided in the great majority of cases. We offer our patients a wide range of nonsurgical treatments. Most treatments can be performed in the comfort of our office and require minimal recovery time. If surgery becomes the appropriate choice, we will make sure our patients receive the highest level of surgical care.

Apex Center For Regenerative Medicine is dedicated to keeping our athletic community healthy and active. We work with patients of all ages and performance levels, from students involved in competitive school and club sports; to avid amateurs who participate for fun and fitness, to professionals whose livelihood depends on their physical health.

In addition to treating sports-related injuries at our Tinton Falls office, Dr. Savarino also educates area patients, coaches, and parents about injury prevention and recognition. Through this community outreach, we aim to help individuals better understand how to care for their bodies before, during and after participating in athletics.

Prevent Complications with Early Sports Injury Care

, Sports Medicine

Sports Injury CareAfter being in an accident, it is important to receive sports injury care right away. In our clinic, we work with a lot of patients and provide high-quality care because we understand how critical it is to get back on the field or court.

For any athlete, old or young, the ability to perform at one’s best is absolutely critical. Being restricted due to an injury and mobility problems can be incredibly frustrating. We work to combat this problem by providing our patients with the care they need to reach a maximum level of recovery. It is important to begin that treatment as quickly as possible.

Long-term complications

By nature, patients tend to be physically tough. Because of this, many will try to nurse their injury and recovery without medical care. This is a mistake because even a minor injury can get worse. If a sports injury is not treated quickly and properly, the condition can worsen and lead to long-term challenges. Even something as simple as built-up scar tissue can cause problems when performance matters and every second counts. It is not worthwhile to take the risk of trying to self-treat not knowing whether that will be effective or not. Instead, it is far better to visit our clinic for care so that long-term complications can be avoided.

Noninvasive treatments

We believe in providing care that allows the body to function at optimal levels and to heal itself as much as possible. By bringing the body into alignment, we can help to achieve that goal. This approach seeks to identify the root causes of an injury and to address those, rather than masking symptoms with medication. This is important for everyone, but especially for patients.

Taking prescription pain relievers to treat a sports injury can be catastrophic, if it leads to an addiction. Too many people have become addicted to prescription pain medication so it is best, whenever possible, to seek out sports injury care that does not rely on it. Even if our patients need to take medication temporarily, this is usually for a short period of time only because we work to solve the problem from the inside out, addressing what is causing pain and discomfort so that true healing can take place.

Treatment methods are noninvasive and that is beneficial to patients who are looking to recover as quickly as possible. Undergoing something like surgery, for example, has a recovery process that can be very time consuming and lead to the need for rehabilitation afterwards. Addressing things through noninvasive measures and incorporating physical therapy and rehabilitation from the start, we can speed up the recovery process.
