If you’re in pain from a chronic condition or recent injury, then you might be in need of an orthopedic doctor. Orthopedic doctors specialize in injury and illness that affects the skeletal system and the soft tissues of your body, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. At AICA Orthopedics, our multi-specialty teams include orthopedic doctors who can treat car accident injuries, slip-and-fall injuries, chronic pain, and degenerative diseases that affect your bones and soft tissues. Our orthopedic doctors offer a wide range of treatment options, including physiotherapy, medication therapy, and surgical procedures when necessary.
Orthopedic doctors can use a wide range of minimally invasive to surgical approaches to help manage your pain. Orthopedic doctors at AICA also develop individualized treatment plans for each person to make sure we are properly addressing the root causes of your pain so you can fully heal and recover from your injury. Pain that affects your spine, muscles, or joints is commonly treated by orthopedic doctors.
There are two main kinds of pain: acute pain and chronic pain. Orthopedic doctors know how to diagnose and treat both types of pain with the goal of you living a pain-free life after treatment. Acute pain is common after an injury, such as a broken bone or whiplash from a car accident. Chronic pain refers to pain that has been bothering you for 6 months or more and is affecting your ability to go about your daily life.
Orthopedic doctors specialize in pain management for all kinds of orthopedic concerns, from healing after a sports injury to successfully managing the pain symptoms of a degenerative disease like arthritis. Our doctors use their wide variety of treatment options to determine what will work best for you and your specific circumstances to facilitate healing and lasting pain relief.
Car accident injuries and sports injuries are common conditions treated by orthopedic doctors. These types of injuries tend to affect more than one part of the body. A fractured wrist from a sports injury may lead to limited mobility, muscle weakness, and even cause nerve disruption or damage. Orthopedic doctors are trained and knowledgeable in addressing complex injuries that involve damage to a combination of bones, muscles, joints, and other soft tissues.
Torn muscles and tendons from sports or other types of injuries can also require intervention from an orthopedic doctor so you can ensure your body heals properly and you can regain full range of motion. Joint pain is also treated by orthopedic doctors, like knee pain and hip pain. Joint injuries and conditions often involve the wearing down of cartilage, which can cause serious pain and discomfort.
Degenerative disorders and chronic conditions are also treated by orthopedic doctors. This includes all osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Our orthopedic doctors at AICA also treat musculoskeletal conditions like osteoporosis, bursitis, and tumors. As we age, the wear and tear on our bones, joints, muscles, and other soft tissues can lead to chronic, painful conditions that worsen with time without intervention. An orthopedic doctor can help identify what is bothering you and get at the source of the issue.
Practically everyone will experience orthopedic pain at some point in their life. Any time you have an injury or condition that is causing you pain that doesn’t go away, it might be the right time to see an orthopedic doctor for help. Pain that persists for months or gets worse with time can be a sign that something isn’t healing properly or needs attention so it doesn’t develop into something more serious.
If you suffered an injury from any kind of event, a car accident injury, sports injury, or were injured at work, you may need to see an orthopedic doctor for help. Injuries to your bones, joints, muscles, and other soft tissues can affect your mobility and range of motion. It can become difficult to go from sitting to standing without pain, or to perform your usual daily tasks without extreme discomfort. Don’t let this kind of pain rule your life. Visit an orthopedic doctor and learn more about what is going on and how you can heal.
At AICA Orthopedics, our teams of multi-specialty doctors and physicians have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services and tests all in-house, so you can meet with your doctor and get the tests you need all in one convenient location. Diagnostic imaging tests help provide your orthopedic doctor with better visuals of how your injury or condition is affecting your skeletal system and soft tissues.
X-rays create two-dimensional images of orthopedic conditions like broken bones and dislocated joints. CT scans are like advanced X-rays that provide your doctor with more detailed, three-dimensional images. MRI scans use strong magnets and radio waves to take highly detailed, cross-sectional images of affected areas. Your orthopedic doctor may recommend one or more of these types of diagnostic imaging tests to provide them with the information they need for the most appropriate diagnosis.
When a bone is broken, tests will need to be run to confirm the nature of the fracture, and the most effective test for getting a visual of broken bones is the x-ray, which shows skeletal injuries.LEARN MORE
If the x-ray is not able to provide enough detail to treat the fracture properly, a CT scan may be ordered. The CT scan will show a composite of the different cross-sectional images taken by the radiologist.LEARN MORE
