Individual treatment plan/ Non-surgical Orthopedic Treatment
The medical team at Health Balance Medical PC includes orthopedists and sports doctors, but also general practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and others. Together we will develop a step-by-step treatment plan tailored to suit your individual care needs. These steps can include:
Activity Change: In some cases, the only treatment required is to rest the affected area and let it repair itself.
Assistive devices: Braces, orthopedics, slings, sticks, or other accessories can help heal the injury.
Physiotherapy or occupational therapy: This step is common in most orthopedic conditions to strengthen the muscles and surrounding tissue, but also to train your body to move properly and prevent future injury.
Topical or Oral Medications: our orthopedic surgeon’s prescription medications may include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or nerve pain medications to help relieve pain as the injury heals.
Steroid Injections: An injection program, which may include a combination of corticosteroids and pain relievers, may be prescribed to relieve pain and improve function. These injections can also help our team decide if your condition requires stronger therapy.
Orthopedic non-surgical treatment can include:
Topical or oral medication
Minimally invasive procedure
This treatment can restore proper movement, strengthen muscles and joints, and increase the range of motion without surgery. We will help you decide the best way to treat your orthopedic condition to achieve your personal health goals and make you stand tall.
