Custom braces are often recommended for people who have suffered from injury or instability of ligaments essential to high-impact activities, such as sports. Before the brace fitting, the patient must first consult with a qualified physician, who will then identify possible problem areas that need to be addressed by the brace. Measurements of the affected area are then taken to determine how the brace would sit in that area, to promote smooth and efficient movement. The patient will then be taught how to wear the brace properly to prevent further injury or pain in the area, as well as minor discomfort or circulation problems.

Dislocation Treatment and Management

Seeking immediate treatment for dislocated joints is crucial to restoring the normal function of the affected body part, which is usually the kneecap or shoulder. At Providence Orthopaedics, dislocations are given immediate treatment, which may include the use of splint or sling to immobilise the affected joints, manual manipulation or repositioning of the joints, medication, and rehabilitation. For severe cases, immediate surgery may be recommended. This is the best option if the dislocation has damaged the patient’s blood vessels or nerves or if the patient often dislocates the same joint.

General Consultation

 Read more...Read less...

A general consultation with an orthopaedic is typically necessitated by a broken or fractured bone, but there are also other reasons for such a visit, such as carpal tunnel problems, arthritis, and any condition that affects bones in the body. For a general consultation, the orthopaedic doctor typically goes through the patient’s medical history to better understand the root cause of the condition (especially if the problem is not caused by an accident or injury). An interview with the patient is also often required and covers habits or lifestyle aspects not necessarily reflected in the medical history. The orthopaedic doctor might order several tests, including ones involving imaging, to better determine the reasons behind the patient’s pain and to design a treatment plan that will best address the condition without compromising the surrounding structures in the problem area.

MAKOPlasty Partial Knee Resurfacing Surgery

MAKOPlasty Partial Knee Resurfacing is a treatment option for adult patients suffering from osteoarthritis in various compartments of the knee. The procedure can be performed on the inner, outer, or top compartment of the patient’s knee. The implant will be installed by a robotic arm orthopaedic system, ensuring better precision. For the procedure, the system will resurface the affected knee compartment to spare the healthy tissues and bone in the area. The implant will then be secured to the joint, which will improve its mobility and restore function in the area. The MAKOPlasty Partial Knee Resurfacing procedure is often recommended for patients who want a more natural feel and movement to the knee after the surgery. Compared to traditional knee replacement procedures, this can be performed on an outpatient basis and ensures rapid pain relief and recovery for the patient. The incision made in the area is also smaller, which means less scarring and blood loss.

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment

Platelet rich plasma injections or PRP injections is a treatment option used in a wide variety of medical fields, including urology, orthopaedics, cosmetic surgery, and sports medicine. This treatment option uses blood plasma, enriched with autologous platelets, which stimulates the faster healing of soft tissues and bones in the affected area. PRP injections can be recommended for people suffering from osteoarthritis, cardiac muscle injury, nerve injury, or tendinitis. This procedure can be performed with one or more injections, depending on the physician’s recommendation. While the injection itself does not take a lot of time, recovery periods or restoration of normal functions can vary depending on various factors. For example, PRP injections administered in the shoulders or the elbows might require a patient to wear a sling for a couple of days to a week. Osteoarthritis patients, on the other hand, can return to their normal activities after a 24-hour rest period.

Shockwave Therapy

Also known as Axtracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), shockwave therapy is essentially a non-invasive procedure that uses acoustic waves to address several conditions including intense pain and to restore mobility in the affected limbs. The acoustic waves used for shockwave therapy are very similar to those employed to break down kidney stones. Aside from pain management, shockwave therapy can also be used to increase the level of substance P (a neuropeptide essential for nerve communication), promote collagen production in the joints and ligaments, increase metabolism, reduce histamine, and treat plantar fasciitis.

The procedure, which is performed only by board-certified orthopaedic surgeons with the help of medically trained staff, is ideal for repairing rotator cuff and bone spur removal. It’s also recommended for ligaments repair and recurrent shoulder dislocation. During the procedure, the surgeon inflates the joint and inspects the shoulder using arthroscope. A small puncture is then made on the shoulder where fluid is injected to achieve clear view as well as to control bleeding. Using special medical instruments, the surgeon will shave, cut, grasp, or tie tissues and muscle to repair the tendon.

Sports Injuries Treatment

Treating sports injuries can employ a wide variety of procedures and techniques. Minor injuries, such as sprains and strains sustained when playing sports, can often be treated using a therapy known as PRICE (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) for a couple of days. If minor pain persists, it can be addressed by taking over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. If, on the other hand, the injury sustained is more serious, the patient can opt for physiotherapy, where manipulation, massage, and exercises can be used to improve mobility and strength, as well as to restore normal functions in the affected area. Physiotherapy can be a long-term treatment program. The patient can also opt for corticosteroid injections for persistent or severe swelling; or, in the case of broken bones, a combination of surgery and physiotherapy.

Total Joint Replacement

A total joint replacement procedure involves the removal of a damaged joint and the installation of a prosthesis. This procedure can be done in areas like the shoulder, knee, or hip, and is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon. After a consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon and being recommended for the total joint replacement surgery, the patient will be prepped for the procedure. First, the patient will be placed under general or regional anaesthesia. The target area will be opened surgically, and the damaged or diseased joint removed. The joint prosthesis will then be installed before the incision is sutured. The extent of the scarring will depend on the technique used by the orthopaedic surgeon. After the surgery, which takes around an hour or two, the patient will be moved to a recovery room until he or she is fully awake, and the effect of the anaesthesia has worn off. For hip or knee replacement surgery, the patient will be required to stay in the hospital for a couple of days and might need physical therapy before resuming normal activities.
