Orthopedic Treatment Options
For non-surgical treatments requested by patients, we have other options such as injections and medications to treat the problem.
Medications: 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.
Injections: In orthopedic, 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.
Physiotherapy: 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: 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 orthopedic surgeons.
