Not all orthopedic conditions require surgery. In fact, for many musculoskeletal conditions, there are a number of conservative measures that can be taken in to either delay or omit the need for surgery.

The musculoskeletal system is comprised of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. In cases of inflammation, "overuse" injuries, mild sprains, strains, etc., a range of conservative treatment can be highly effective in getting you back to your normal function. Treatments include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Medication
  • Injections
  • Orthotics
  • Bracing and more

In recent years, there have been many advancements made that provide additional options for conservative treatment as well. The use of biologics, platelet rich plasma injections and visco-supplementation are a few that have advanced the field of sports medicine and treatment for the osteoarthritis, or "wear and tear" arthritis that damages articular cartilage.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is another specialty that has seen a variety of conventional and non conventional treatment options for the treatment of back pain and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.

A qualified orthopedic physician or surgeon will be able to properly diagnose the cause and condition and subsequently review a list of effective treatment options.
