Non-Surgical Treatments

 

The options for repairing an injury or addressing your chronic pain in the lower extremities begins with the most conservative approach that will be effective for your unique situation. Your physician will collaborate with you to develop a customized treatment plan. If you are a candidate, non-surgical regenerative medicine options may be considered.

  • Physical Therapy – You may be given exercises to strengthen your muscles for stabilization and to provide better flexibility which will promote better circulation into the injured area. These exercises may be continued at home after physical therapy has been completed.
  • Anti-inflammatory medications – Our physicians prefer to prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, mostly available over the counter, to give you relief from lower extremity symptoms.
  • Injections – Many injection options exist that may address your pain without a surgical procedure.
  • Muscle relaxants – These medicines may be prescribed if the primary cause of the pain involves the muscles and/or nerves.
  • Heat and/or cold packs – Alternating heat and cold packs may relieve minor pain.

 

 

Regenerative Medicine 

 

At Orthopedic Centers of America, we provide treatments that have been proven safe.These non-surgical options are performed by highly-skilled, experienced orthopedic specialists who have advance knowledge in how to harness the body’s repair mechanisms and accurately place them at the place of your injury or chronic pain for a lasting solution.

  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – PRP has been shown to carry a significant amount of growth factors and proteins that speed the healing process along with cytokines that give quick pain relief. Your blood will be collected to create the PRP for an injection that can be provided in the office setting.
  • Cell Therapy – This innovative and advanced procedure makes use of the placement of the body’s bone marrow (rich in regenerative components) at the point of your injury or chronic pain. The bone marrow carries “signaling cells” that communicate to the surrounding injured tissue and bone that healing needs to take place, and the process begins immediately. Ask your physician if you are a candidate.

 Orthopedic Centers of America does not participate in cells sourced from Embryonic, Umbilical Cord Blood/Placental Tissue, Amniotic Fluid, or Amniotic Tissue. Only adult cells from one’s own body are used by the doctors in the Orthopedic Centers of America network.

 

Minimally-Invasive Surgery

 

Medical technologies continue to provide the industry with less invasive manners of providing relief from pain in the lower extremities so you can get back to the lifestyle you enjoy. Smaller incisions are made which means less trauma to muscles and tissue, allowing for a faster recovery. Some of the laser and minimally-invasive surgeries may include:

Replacement Surgery -When the joints are worn to the point that replacement surgery is the best option, you are in good hands with Orthopedic Centers of America. Our board-certified surgeons use the latest technology and specialize in the procedures to meet your individualized care needs. These procedures can include:

 

 

Rehabilitation 

 

Your physician will determine how much physical therapy you will require for the proper healing to take place. It is as important to follow the instructions from the physical therapist and complete the exercises since this is the final step in your personalized plan, intended to get you back to an active lifestyle.
