How An Orthopedic Pain Doctor Can Help
An orthopedic doctor specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and surgery of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. The musculoskeletal system involves bones, muscles, tendons, nerves, joints, and ligaments.
Orthopedic doctors are trained to use surgery and other medical procedures to treat conditions, deformities, and injuries with the goal of restoring the body to its most functional level possible. They generally treat children, teens, and adults.
How a Pain Management Doctor Can Treat Orthopedic Issues
There are many orthopedic pain specialist in Los Angeles, however, the goal of our team of pain management doctors is to give patients greater mobility and to reduce their pain as an alternative to orthopedic surgery.
Our focus is on the treatment of joint pains and the surrounding tissues in the shoulders and the knees . These areas of the body are especially prone to experiencing pain and damage, potentially causing a lower quality of life and limiting mobility.
Our team treats joint pain through a variety of minimally-invasive solutions such as:
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
- Steroid Injections
- Stem Cell Therapy
Advanced Pain Medical Group is unique in that we use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to help pinpoint the exact source of pain. Issues we regularly address include nerve pain, joint pain, and tissue damage.
Our compassionate pain management specialists will listen carefully to the symptoms you’ve been experiencing and will formulate an effective medical treatment plan to help you live a more comfortable life.
Minimally Invasive Treatments
In some cases, major surgery is not the best (or only) option. Our team is highly trained in minimally-invasive solutions to reduce pain and maximize functionality. For example, steroid injections can reduce painful swelling in a joint, while stem cell therapy or PRP injections can help the body repair itself.
We also judiciously use pain medications to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible until treatments begin to take effect to reduce joint pain.
If you’ve suffered an injury, it is imperative that the right diagnosis and treatment is given as quickly as possible so that the body can heal properly and be restored.
If you are experiencing nerve pain or deterioration of a shoulder or knee joint, we believe that immediate medical intervention and education can help you in several ways:
- Learn more about your condition and how to optimally care for your body.
- Slow down further deterioration, if possible.
- Reduce pain in the affected areas to increase your ability to stay physically active.
