Orthopaedic Treatment Options
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs reduce the production of prostaglandins that causes pain. For patients who experience pain caused by muscle stiffness, pain relief medications are often prescribed.
In orthopaedic, injection is one of the common treatments. Of the various types of injections, most of them are given to relieve pain and for anti-inflammatory purposes.
One of the most common option for pain relief and discomfort is physiotherapy. At the same time, it also serves to strengthen the injured area. Physiotherapy is mostly used for lower back pain treatment, neck pain treatment and rehabilitation after surgery.
Surgery is always a last resort. We believe that not all patients need operations, which is only a last option. In additional every patient needs a management plan structured according to his or her needs or personal situation. We believe that most of the problems can be treated conservatively without the need for surgery. However, if surgery is the best option left, then be rest assured that you are in the hands of one of most experienced and professional orthopaedic surgeons.

SURGERY IS NOT ALWAYS THE ANSWER
When people think of seeing an orthopaedic doctor, they may immediately think of surgery. Fortunately, many orthopaedic problems can be corrected with alternative procedures.
To prescribe the appropriate treatment, we will evaluate your injury or disorder, taking into account your age, occupation, and level of activity. Many times our physicians prescribe rest, anti-inflammatory medication, and activity modification or physical therapy.

OUR ATTENTION TO YOU
We want the time you spend with us to be as informative and comfortable as possible. During your first appointment, we will ask about your history and perform a physical examination.
Usually we take x-rays to assist on the proper diagnosis. Occasionally, special tests such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Computerized Tomography Scanning (CT scan) are needed to provide more detailed pictures of your bones and joints.
