Scotch Plains, NJ (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Dr. Sammy Masri of Masri Sports Medicine &Wellness, NJ Top Doc, is a board certified primary care sports medicine physician. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of non-surgical sports and other musculoskeletal injuries for both adults and children, for the elite athlete and for the people who participate in recreational athletics and use exercise to stay healthy and active. Dr. Masri seeks to provide his patients with a one-on-one personalized treatment from the time of diagnosis until “return to play.” He understands that each patient’s treatment plan should be tailored to the individual’s lifestyle and capabilities.
Services that are offered by Dr. Masri include but are not limited to the following:
Sports Medicine- Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that utilizes an integrated, comprehensive approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of sport and exercise related injuries, disorders, dysfunctions, and disease processes.
Tenex Health TX™ is revolutionizing the treatment of tendonitis and soft tissue injuries. This procedure is a minimally invasive procedure for eliminating scar tissue, the source of chronic tendon pain. Using ultrasound guidance to target the exact location of pain, Dr. Masri inserts the toothpick-sized tip of the TX1 Tissue Removal System into the affected tendon. The tip emits ultrasonic energy, which breaks down damaged, painful scar tissue without disturbing the surrounding healthy tendon tissue. After the scar tissue is removed, the incision is closed with an adhesive bandage. There are no stitches required, and the treatment only takes about 15 minutes to perform. By removing the unhealthy scar tissue, new and healthier tissue can grow, restoring your natural tendon function.
Some of the most common types of tendonitis treated by Tenex Health TX™ include:
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer's elbow
- Rotator cuff tendonitis (Swimmer's shoulder)
- Patellar tendonitis (Jumper's knee)
- Achilles tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
Coolief* Cooled Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment can deliver precisely that. It is a minimally-invasive treatment option for chronic knee pain and arthritis targeting those nerves that cause pain. Studies reveal that this procedure offers significant knee pain relief, improved physical function as well as range of motion and reduced need for medication.
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound- Allows the doctor the ability to perform a dynamic or “live” study so he can see the injured area move and therefore identify evidence of injury. He can also provide ultrasound-guided needle injections for exact placement. There is no exposure to ionizing radiation.
Joint Fluid Replacement- Joint fluid treatment, or visco supplementation as it is also known, is a relatively simple procedure that can provide lasting relief for treatment of knee arthritis. The procedure replaces joint fluid through a series of three injections made directly into the knee joint that are each spaced a week apart.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy- Human platelets are naturally extremely rich in connective tissue growth factors. Injecting these growth factors into damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints stimulates a natural repair process. PRP recreates and stimulates the body’s natural healing process.
EMG/NCV Testing- EMG stands for electromyography. NCV stands for nerve conduction velocity. Combined this is a sensitive test for nerve injuries. This test is commonly used to detect problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves in your neck or back, generalized nerve injuries or muscle diseases.
Natural Hormone Replacement- Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy is the use of hormones that are identical, on a molecular level, with your body’s own hormones. When your hormones are out of balance, your body will not respond optimally to just nutrition and exercise. Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy treats many of the diseases of aging by restoring the body’s chemistry to youthful levels. It will enhance your energy and vitality allowing you to feel young, balanced, and healthy.
Nutritional Supplementation- According to a U.S. Department of Agriculture study, over 90% of Americans are deficient in 14 essential nutrients. Poor dietary habits, busy lifestyles, stress, and other pressures often conspire to result in less than ideal nutrition. Most nutritionists therefore agree that we should be supplementing our diet with select nutritional supplements.
Dr. Masri received his Internal Medicine degree at UMDNJ in Newark and then went on to complete his fellowship in a Primary Care Sports Medicine program at Jersey Shore Medical Center. He has covered numerous special events including the NCAA men’s Basketball Tournament, Big East Track and Field Finals, US Masters Swim Meet and the NYC Marathon. He has also worked as a sports physician covering the Olympic Developmental Soccer Program for New Jersey’s finest young soccer athletes. Prior to opening his practice in Sports Medicine, Dr. Masri worked in the Emergency Room at Hackensack University Medical Center, where he still holds medical staff privileges. Dr. Masri has committed himself to the philosophy that a sound mind and body are quintessential to success in the athletic arena.
