Orthopedics

OVERVIEW

The orthopedic providers at 7 Springs are solely focused on diagnosing and conservatively treating any and all of your muscle, bone, or joint conditions. Orthopedic issues can be treated non-operatively and operatively with medications, physical therapy, exercise, alternate therapies or by a host of surgical procedures, including some that are minimally invasive and thus less traumatic to the body than traditional open surgery.

The overall goal of 7 Springs Orthopedics’ treatment options are to preserve or restore the musculoskeletal system with non-surgical measures before considering surgical intervention.

Clinical and basic science researchers worldwide continue to add to the knowledge of current and new orthopedic treatments to treat problems with the musculoskeletal system and help patients regain their normal activity level and lifestyle.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Although surgery is sometimes required for situations such as complex fractures, ligament tears, or severe cartilage damage, nearly all strains, sprains, pulls, and even most fractures can be treated with nonsurgical intervention.  

Some of these treatment options include:

  • Over-the-counter or prescribed medication such as an anti-inflammatory
  • Physical therapy or rehab exercises
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Regenerative medicine injections, such as platelet rich plasma or stem cells
  • Casting or bracing
  • Using orthotics or compression sleeves to provide support and protection

WHEN TO SEE AN ORTHOPEDIC PROVIDER

If you’re experiencing acute or chronic pain in your muscles, joints, or bones or you have problems with your joints, you will likely benefit from seeing an orthopedic provider. If you have any of the following symptoms, we recommend you make an appointment to be evaluated.

  • You have pain, stiffness, or discomfort that are making it difficult to perform everyday activities
  • You are experiencing chronic pain (pain lasting longer than 12 weeks)

  • You feel unstable while walking or standing
