This book sheds new light on the complex area of regenerative injections used in sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, pursuing an evidenced-based approach. Largely ignoring orthopedic surgery, which would involve arthroscopic procedures and scaffolding as they are practiced mainly by orthopedic surgeons, the book instead focuses on injection-based treatments that are particularly useful in sports medicine and for musculoskeletal pain conditions.
Including evidence from systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and randomized controlled trials, the book provides a comprehensive overview of regenerative injections such as dextrose, platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy, along with their history and scientific basis. It also includes detailed information on the preparation methods, steps of the procedure, and clinical conditions most likely to benefit from it.
Given its scope, the book offers a valuable tool for all medical practitioners whose work involves painful musculoskeletal conditions, e.g. sports medicine physicians, orthopedists and interventional physiatrists, as well as general practitioners.
