At Orange County Orthopedic Group, a thorough diagnosis is an important part of determining that treatment that you need. This process involves gaining a lot of information through questions about your medical history, your pain, physical examinations, and diagnostic tests that can provide a fuller picture.
At Orange County Orthopedic Group, we perform joint replacements for patients who are not finding relief through other methods. Oftentimes, joint problems are so extensive that it is difficult to continue everyday activities or go through the day without pain. Sometimes, shoulder, knee, or hip replacement is necessary.
Medications are often used to reduce pain and inflammation. Any medication suggested or prescribed by one of the doctors at Orange County Orthopedic Group will involve direct care and supervision, and will also likely be part of a multifaceted treatment plan.
Orthopedic care encompasses several different options. In addition to joint replacement, medications, and surgical procedures, the options for treatment at Orange County Orthopedic Group can include…
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is commonly used by athletes in order to speed up the healing of joint-related sports injuries. However, it is quickly becoming a pain management option for non-athletes who want to experience the ways that blood platelets can ease pain that is related to tendon and joint problems and injuries.
Rehabilitation involves helping you to recover entirely after an injury or surgery. During rehabilitation, we will work to restore your flexibility and range of motion. In some cases, this will involve psychologically and socially helping you to recover.
There are some orthopedic conditions that are not effectively treated with non-surgical methods. Usually, this applies to conditions with severe pain that aren’t helped with icing, bracing, medications, physical therapy, and other types of orthopedic care. In these situations, surgery might be the best choice.
