Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Orthopaedic Injuries
At the Center for Orthopaedic Innovation, we believe in the inherent uniqueness of each patient. A team of genuine, caring orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, registered nurses and other medical professionals all work together to help ensure that you get the very best joint care available in Phoenix. While many patients have already found relief through minimally invasive knee resurfacing and hip replacement procedures, we know that not every patient needs those kinds of advanced treatment modalities.
Exercise, Physical Therapy and Aquatic Therapy
When suffering from pain in the back, knee, hip, shoulder, or other joints, exercise might be the last thing on your mind. However, a carefully monitored exercise regiment can actually lead to improved mobility and comfort. Patients at the Center for Orthopaedic Innovation work with our physical therapy department to learn joint pain management strategies that produce results.
A single injection of Synvisc-One® can provide up to six months of osteoarthritis knee pain relief. Many patients have found joint pain relief through steroid injections
Epidural Spinal InjectionsDealing with pain in the lower back? An epidural spinal injection can relieve pain and reduce inflammation, which allows you to enjoy a freer range of motion. In turn, the increased mobility lets you exercise with greater comfort, naturally strengthening your back. To learn more about epidural spinal injections, call the Center for Orthopaedic Innovation at 602-251-8682.
Facet Joint Injection
The small joints in the spine that connect vertebrae to vertebrae are known as facet joints. Inflamed facet joints can limit your mobility and cause significant pain. A facet joint injection can provide weeks or even months of pain relief.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)
If back pain is caused by an abnormal growth or tumor on the spinal column, then your physician may recommend stereotactic radiosurgery at St. Luke’s Medical Center. In this non-invasive procedure, intense, focused radiation is administered directly to the tumor. This radiation causes the tumor to go into remission and reduces back pain.
