Expedited Injury Treatment

Injuries can occur in every sport, but with the proper treatment, you can get back to doing what you love.

PRO-AM has sports injury doctors in Las Vegas to help diagnose and treat your injury. Do you have concerns about receiving treatment because you don’t have insurance? Don’t stress! PRO-AM offers reduced cash pay rates because we believe every athlete deserves the appropriate medical care for fractures, dislocations, sprains, and other sports-related injuries.

ProAm provides patients athletes with all treatment options both surgical and non-surgical including Orthopedic, and Chiropractic as well as in-house Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation performed onsite on our state of the art facility.

X-Ray and Imaging

An accurate diagnosis is imperative in treating a sports related injury. ProAm has the ability to perform X-rays at our location and has also partnered with Desert Radiology to perform MRI and other imaging services in an expedited manner for our patients so that the injury can clearly be identified and subsequently treated by our physicians.

X-ray and Imaging are covered by most insurance. For patients without insurance we offer reduced cash pay rates and can usually have someone scheduled and imaging completed within 24 hours, greatly reducing the traditional time it takes to be properly evaluated.

Concussion Evaluation and Treatment

Through our extensive experience of providing medical treatment and care to the Combat Sports community, ProAm’s evaluation and treatment of athletes experiencing concussion by our Neurologist, Dr. Hooshang Sadeghi, MD is second to none. Our extensive concussion evaluations and protocols are developed to ensure the proper level of treatment is received.

When the athlete sustains a Head Injury, they should be immediately removed from physical activity and undergo an initial Concussion Evaluation. This can be performed by team physicians, athletic trainers, sports physicians, ED physicians. Additionally, the athlete should be monitored for several hours to determine if there is deterioration of his condition. The goal is to evaluate for red flags of more serious emergency brain injury and to have the athlete enter the concussion protocol. If the athlete develops any Red Flag Signs at any point in the initial evaluation, the athlete should be sent for immediate CT Brain to exclude a more serious injury such as skull fracture or brain hemorrhage:

Injectable Injury Treatment

These Therapeutic Injectables are often very effective in treating joint, tendon, muscle, and ligament injuries as well as other degenerative conditions associated with sports injuries that may not require surgery. Injectable Therapies can be coupled with our proprietary IV Therapy to further enhance the healing qualities to ensure the body has adequate nutrients for optimal healing.

Steroid Injections

Cortisone and Kenalog are potent anti-inflammatory medications. These medications can be injected in the area of injury to provide improvement or pain and swelling with rapid return to activity. Steroids can be injected into various injured soft tissues such as joints and muscles safely and under ultrasound guidance by experienced Pro-Am medical practitioners. We will ensure steroidal injections are only administered under the authorization of the sanctioning state athletic commission and governing bodies.

Platelet Rich Therapy (PRP)

PRP is essentially a concentrated form of your own blood’s healing agents. Performed in the office, the patient’s blood is drawn and processed so that the platelets and plasma are ultra-concentrated and purified. Platelets are the blood cells in your blood that initiate the healing process. They attached to damage tissue and release growth factors to activate the healing process. Your own body’s stem cells are drawn into the area of damage and begin tissue regeneration.

A variety of injuries can be treated with PRP. These include joint damage (labrum tears, meniscus tears), tendinitis, bursitis, epicondylitis (golfer’s and tennis elbow), ligament injuries (ACL, PCL tears), arthritis, and plantar fasciitis.

The PRP procedure is performed in the office by Pro-Am medical practitioners. The concentrated PRP is injected into the area of pain or damage under ultrasound guidance with local anesthetic, to ensure that the treatment is administered in the precise location of injury for maximal effect. The risks associated with PRP Therapy are minimal as it is using your body’s own natural method of injury repair at an accelerated rate.

Autologous Stem Cells:

Autologous Stem Cell Treatment refers to stem cells that are removed and harvested from your own body. They are responsible for growing and regenerating new tissue and are involved in healing when there is damage. There are stem cells in all different parts of your body but are very concentrated and easy to obtain from your bone marrow. The stem cells in bone marrow include mesenchymal stem cells which are able to grow into bone, cartilage, fibrous connective tissue and blood cells. These types of cells are key for regrowth and regeneration of damaged tissue.

A variety of injuries can be treated with autologous stem cells. These include joint damage (labrum tears, meniscus tears), tendinitis, bursitis, epicondylitis (golfer’s and tennis elbow), ligament injuries (ACL, PCL tears), arthritis, and plantar fasciitis.

Allogenic Stem Cells:

Allogenic Stem Cell Treatment refers to stem cells obtained from sources other than your body. These include Stem Cells and Exosomes. Stem Cells are obtained from the placental umbilical cord and NOT from embryonic or fetal tissue and are obtained from consenting donors. The cells are safely extracted and purified in an FDA approved laboratory, frozen and transported to the clinic where they can be used to treat patients.

Stem Cells are cells that have the ability to transform into any other type of cell in the body. Exosomes are the actual vesicles within the stem cells that are full of a variety of growth factors and messenger molecules. These products can be used to treat injured areas of the body to help with pain and inflammation and may help stimulate the regenerative cycle.

Stem Cells and Exosomes can be injected into the area of injury. The procedure is performed in the office by Pro-Am medical practitioners. The product is injected into the area of pain or damage under ultrasound guidance with local anesthetic, to ensure that the treatment is administered in the precise location of injury for maximal effect. Additionally, Allo-Biologics can be combined with PRP to take advantage of the benefits of both treatments.

Commonly Injection Treated Conditions Include:

• Shoulder rotator cuff tear or labrum tear
• Osteoarthritis
• Hip arthritis or labral tear
• Knee arthritis
• Meniscus injuries
• Ligament injuries such as ACL or PCL tear
• Hand arthritis
• Wrist injuries
• Epicondylitis (Tennis and Golfer’s elbow)
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Achilles Tendon injuries

Chiropractic

Dr. Kristine Lukens D.C. brings over 30 years of chiropractic, soft tissue, and biomechanical experience as ProAm’s in house Chiropractor. Dr. Lukens works in a coordinated manner with other ProAm physicians to determine the best treatment solutions and highest probable outcomes specific to each injury and time to being back to 100%.

Red Flag Signs: Transfer for IMMEDIATE CT Brain

SYMPTOMS
Loss of Consciousness
Seizure
Vomiting
Confusion
Severe Headache
NEURO EXAM ABNORMALITIES
Pupillary Defect
Abnormal Eye Movements
Numbness
Weakness
Slurred Speech
SIGNS OF SKULL FRACTURE
Raccoon Eyes
Battle signs
Clear Rhinorrhea
Clear Otorrhea
C-spine pain

If the athlete remains stable and does not exhibit any Red Flag Signs but does have evidence of concussion, they can be released home and follow up at Pro-Am in 1-3 days to enter the concussion management protocol. While at home the athlete is to undergo complete physical and cognitive rest, drink fluids, and take acetaminophen for pain.

Treatment of concussion at Pro-Am falls into three phases:

ACUTE PHASE:
Concussion Care for Days 1-7 after injury
SUBACUTE PHASE:
Symptom Management and treatment for days 8-21

Most athletes are asymptomatic in this phase and can enter the Return to Activity Protocol. This plan slowly reintroduces the athlete to activity under the supervision of Pro-Am Rehab Coordinator and ensures that the athlete returns to full activity in a safe manner. A separate Return to Combat protocol is used for combat sport athletes.

POST-CONCUSSIVE PHASE:
Management of persistent symptoms over 21 days.

Athletes with persistent symptoms that last over 21 days are considered post-concussive. Management of symptoms during the Subacute and Post-concussive phase is focused on aggressive symptom treatment in conjunction with specialists if indicated. A Neuro-Physical Therapy program performed by our Physical Therapist, Dr. Joe Indrieri, is tailored to each individual athlete with the goal initially to return to academic activities, then work, and finally physical activity when symptoms have resolved.

  • 1. Neuro-PT program tailored to each athlete and directed by his symptoms.
  • 2. Chronic Headache management by Neurology
  • 3. Neuropsych for persistent mood/sleep disorders

Adjustment Manipulation

Spinal adjustments and manipulation are a fundamental part of Chiropractic care. This can help ease wear and tear on the joints and ligaments, and help eliminate premature wear. This treatment of realigning the vertebrae back into the proper position allows the body to function at its’ fullest.

Cupping

Cupping is the application of suction or vacuum to the skin, raising the tissue, allowing energy blockages to be restored and trigger points to be released. The marks on the skin, after cupping is performed, are generally not sensitive to the touch as there is no blunt force used.

Graston Therapy

This non-invasive technique uses designed stainless steel instruments to help the clinician identify and treat chronic inflammation and soft tissue fibrosis. GT allows for the Chiropractor to get into contact with the adhesion, breaking up scar tissue, restoring range of motion and eliminating pain.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is applied using a round-healed wand or probe that is put in direct contact with the patient’s skin. Ultrasound gel is used on all surfaces of the head in order to reduce friction. Ultrasound can produce many effects including: tissue relaxation, increase local blood flow, scar tissue breakdown, while reducing local swelling and promote healing.

Rocktape

Rocktape is used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fascitis, runner’s knee, joint pain and back pain. The rocktape lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompression effect. Over time, rocktape inhibits overactive muscles and decompresses areas of swelling and inflammation.

Foot & Ankle

An ankle injury can drastically impair an athlete’s ability to perform, especially if you push your body too far. Our foot and ankle specialists in Las Vegas take a hands-on approach with athletes and provide the best treatment. We work with every type of athlete, from weekend runners to world-class seasoned boxers. Our ground-breaking process eliminates the need for delays and various referrals so that athletes can focus on healing rather than waiting.

Depending on the type of sport you play when this happens, the reason behind it can vary, but all causes have similar symptoms. You may notice pain, swelling, or bruising, and you may even struggle to walk. If you see any of this after a sports injury, remember to rest and schedule an appointment with a sports medicine specialist.

Knee Injury

High-impact sports that involve running, jumping, or even twisting may sometimes result in knee pain or injury. This could mean taking a brief break from your athletic lifestyle, and while that may sound anything but pleasurable, it gets you back on your feet faster. Continuing athletics despite an injury could worsen the injury or cause other conditions to develop, which will leave you laid up for longer while recovering. Instead, receive treatment from a knee surgeon in Las Vegas at PRO-AM. Often, you can detect a knee injury if you have extensive pain in your knee or kneecap, experience severe swelling or bruising, or are unable to bend or straighten your knee. Sometimes these injuries occur due to a tear along a tendon—such as an ACL tear—but these could also occur due to fracture or a sprain. Our knee surgeons can answer any questions you may have, ensuring you are fully comfortable with the available treatment options.

TENEX Tendon Procedure

Tendon damage is a common cause of pain and limitation of function and are encountered in many athletic injuries. Examples of tendon injuries include Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s elbow), Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis elbow), Achilles tendonitis, Patellar (Knee) tendinitis, Rotator cuff tendon injuries, and Plantar Fasciitis.

The Tenex Procedure involves removing damaged areas, inflammatory fluid and scar tissue from damaged tendon. The procedure is performed either in the office or in a Surgical center. The Tenex device has a vibrating needle tip which is placed into the damaged tendon under ultrasound guidance to pinpoint the exact area of damage. The vibrating tip dislodges and removes damaged tissue and scar tissue with a continuous saline irrigation and suction to remove the products from the tissue, leaving behind only healthy tendon. The needle tip will not damage healthy tissue.

The procedure is done under local anesthetic and a tiny skin incision and typically takes only 10-15 minutes. Results are comparable to surgery with less damage and scarring and quicker recovery.

Other Specialty Providers

ProAm’s network of specialty medical providers include Sports Cardiology, Podiatry, Ear Nose Throat, and Ophthalmology, all dedicated to providing our ProAm patients with the very best in medical care in an expedited manner.
