Orthopedic Care Q&A

What is orthopedic care?

Orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on your musculoskeletal system, which consists of:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Nerves
  • Tendons
  • Cartilage

Musculoskeletal disorders and injuries are a frequent source of chronic pain. This might be due to excess scar tissue formation or incomplete healing of tissue damage. Or it could be because you have a degenerative condition.

Whatever’s causing your chronic pain, Regenerative Spine and Pain Institute provides exceptional orthopedic care that can reduce and resolve your symptoms without the use of invasive surgery.

When might I need orthopedic care?

Whenever you damage your musculoskeletal system or have a condition that affects your bones, muscles, or joints, you can benefit from orthopedic care.

Acute injuries like fractures and dislocations might require emergency medical attention. Tendon and ligament damage – common forms of sports injuries – can usually heal without long-term consequences given the right treatment.  

Other injuries and diseases that are common reasons for needing orthopedic care include:

  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis and tendinosis
  • Meniscal and labral tears
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Whiplash
  • Compression fractures
  • Tennis and golfer's elbow
  • Runner's knee
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cervical and lumbar radiculopathy

Regenerative Spine and Pain Institute provides comprehensive orthopedic care for patients with these and many other musculoskeletal conditions. Your provider creates a customized treatment program following an expert diagnosis and assessment of your needs.

What treatments might form part of my orthopedic care?

Initially, orthopedic care treatment plans usually consist of a combination of physical therapy and altering the activities you do combined with appropriate periods of rest. Additional treatments include chiropractic care, medication, bracing, and splinting.

In many cases, these noninvasive therapies are all you need to relieve your pain and improve physical function. For more persistent pain and dysfunction, Regenerative Spine and Pain Institute offers an extensive range of cutting edge, non-surgical treatments, including:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Facet joint injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Steroid joint injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint injection
  • Viscosupplementation
  • Trigger point injections
  • Medical marijuana
  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation
  • Spinal cord stimulation

Regenerative Spine and Pain Institute also specializes in using regenerative medicine techniques, including PRP (platelet-rich plasma), stem cell therapy, and exosomes, which are playing an increasingly important role in orthopedic care.

These natural products come from your blood and tissues. They contain highly concentrated proteins, growth factors, cytokines, and other substances that promote tissue repair and cell growth.
