Quadriceps Strain

"It was a very easy procedure, it was done in-office, it took a short period of time, a couple of hours, and my life has been wonderful since." – Kevin G.

Quadriceps muscles are most often strained when an athlete is trying to accelerate. The quadriceps muscles are placed under more force than they can withstand, and the muscle fibers, tendons, or both begin to tear away from the bone. When the muscles are fatigued, overused, or not adequately warmed up, they're more susceptible to strain. An imbalance between weak quadriceps and stronger hamstrings can also cause the injury, a condition that is common among runners. When the quadriceps are hit with a direct blow, like when being tackled or blocked in football or checked in hockey, they’re at risk of injury.

Athletes who need a burst of speed are at the highest risk. This includes runners, sprinters, hurdlers, jumpers, and basketball players. Soccer, football, rugby, and lacrosse players are also at high risk. Any athlete with a previous quadriceps injury is more likely to suffer the same injury again.

Most times athletes are told that they need orthopedic surgery to fix their sports injuries. But surgery is not the answer for most of the sports injuries, and may actually never help you regain your performance to the level you were prior to the injury.

Patients coping with sports injuries, tendon strains, sprained ligaments, muscle injuries, arthritis and more, will be comforted to know that surgery is not the only option of treatment available to them. Faster healing as well as improved functionality both are possible with innovative, cutting- edge ADULT stem cell and PRP procedures.

As alternatives to the joint surgery, SmartChoice® Procedures may help alleviate joint pain, arthritis and other sports injuries that caused it with a simple office injection procedure. We encourage the patients to walk the same day and most experience almost no downtime after our procedures whatsoever.

He has worked with professional athletes like former number one PGA Tour Golfer, several NFL players, many Tennis and baseball athletes and athletes from various other sports.
