Treatment of Orthopedic Conditions
When you first visit our office, we will assess your musculoskeletal system to identify any conditions you are suffering from. We will use this information to create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. We will recommend the most effective combination of treatment methods depending on the type and severity of the conditions you are experiencing. Treatment methods include:
- Exercises: Corrective exercises strengthen your body, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
- Immobilization: This treatment method prevents the additional strain on bone and joints to allow your body to heal itself more effectively. Casts, braces, and splints help achieve immobilization.
- Lifestyle changes: Changing your diet, moving angles, and posture helps avoid some injuries and aids in speedy recovery if injured.
