Surgery is not required for every orthopedic condition. At Downtown Pain Physicians, our orthopedic team offers a wide range of non-surgical techniques to effectively treat muscle pain, skeletal pain, and lack of mobility.
Non-Surgical Orthopedic Treatments
These treatments can restore proper movement, strengthen muscles and joints, and increase range of motion without surgery. We will help you decide on the optimal care path for your orthopedic condition to achieve your personal health goals and get you back on your feet.
Orthopedic non-surgical treatments may include:
- Steroid Injections
- Minimally Invasive Procedures
Individualized Treatment Plans
Our multidisciplinary care teams may include orthopedists and sports medicine physicians, but also primary care physicians, radiologists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists and other providers. Together, we will design a step-by-step treatment plan based on your unique care needs.
Those steps may include:
Activity Modification: In some cases, resting the affected area and allowing it to repair on its own is the only care needed.
Assistive devices: A brace, orthotic, sling, cane, or another assistive device can allow the injury to repair.
Steroid injections: A program of injections, which may include a combination of numbing injections, could be utilized to relieve pain and improve function. These injections may also help our team decide if your condition requires stronger therapies.
Advanced Minimally Invasive Treatments
Together, we may choose to pursue a minimally invasive procedure to reduce your joint discomfort or improve your mobility. Our highly trained and skilled physicians are experienced in a wide variety of these treatments that can be performed.
Some of the minimally invasive treatments include:
- Percutaneous tenotomy: This treatment uses ultrasound guidance to identify diseased, pain-generating tendon tissue and employs a tiny needle moving at ultrasonic speed to remove it.
- Sodium hyaluronate injections: This is a treatment to simulate the fluid that surrounds the joint. These injections can relieve pain caused by arthritis of the knee.
- Non-Surgical Treatment Options. Treatments for the musculoskeletal system (which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles)
