Just 10 days to go until the largest sporting event Australia will see this decade! ⚽️🏀🥊🤽♂️🏊♂️🚴♀️ I’m honoured to have been selected as a games doctor serving athletes and spectators at the heart of the Commonwealth Games Village.
Heat related illnesses such as dehydration, sun burn and sun stroke will be one of the most common presentations for medical aid. To make the most of your games experience be sure to always keep well hydrated, keep out of the sun and wear at least spf 30 sunblock. If you do feel unwell at anytime, present yourself to one of the friendly first aid team for help.
It’s the latest craze that has all the celebs signing up, from Kim Kardashian to Kylie Minogue. But what is it and how does it work?
The ‘Vampire facial’ uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which has been around for almost 20 years. PRP is used in a number of medical conditions such as hair thinning, muscle and tendon injuries, knee pain from osteoarthritis and of course for cosmetic purposes including the vampire facial.
In our blood we have a number of different cells including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Platelets contain clotting and growth factors which once activated, stimulate the inflammatory cascade and healing process.
Stay tuned for more treatment photos and videos.
