Your musculoskeletal system is one of the most important parts of your body. It includes your bones, joints, muscles, tendons and cartilage. These are areas that are vulnerable to injuries, especially due to sports and other activities as well as ageing. When you suffer an injury to your joints or other areas you may experience pain and reduced mobility. In some cases, minor injuries will heal after a few days of rest. If an injury doesn’t improve, it is time to seek medical attention from a leading Westlake orthopedics facility.

Conditions Treated by a Westlake Orthopedics Doctor

There are a number of different conditions that can be treated by an experienced Westlake orthopedics doctor. Some of the most common injuries are those to the knees, shoulders, hips, elbows and ankles.

When you have pain accompanied by swelling that lasts more than a couple of days it may require a doctor’s care and treatment. Knee injuries can occur when playing sports or participating in an activity. The meniscus is located on both sides of the knee and keeps it stable and attached to both the upper and lower leg. A meniscus tear may require a repair or it might need to be removed. This may be more common in older patients where there has been significant erosion.

Repairs and replacements are often needed in some of the major joints in the body. After an injury or following years of wear and tear, your joint may need to be repaired or replaced. This will alleviate pain and discomfort and restore your mobility. You will again be able to participate in your favorite activities without experiencing pain.

Diagnostics and Treatment

Many of these types of injuries can be resolved with medical care from a Westlake orthopedics doctor. Not every injury requires surgery. The doctor will conduct a complete examination and will have you take some diagnostics tests. We offer state-of-the-art diagnostics tools right here in the office including digital x-rays and an ultrasound. If needed, our team will coordinate an MRI with a local facility.

After diagnosis, the doctor will provide you with the options that are available to resolve your medical issues. Sometimes rest, medication and physical therapy will allow your injury time to heal without having to do surgery.

If the injury is severe or will not respond to initial treatments, surgery may be the best option. Today’s surgical methods are the least invasive possible. In many cases, the surgeon will utilize an arthroscope to view and repair the damaged area. Arthroscopic surgery is low risk and typically offers a successful resolution. Soon, you will be healing after your procedure and will be able to return to your normal activities after sufficient recovery and physical therapy.

Our Westlake orthopedics medical center provides the highest level of care for your injury. Our team of highly qualified and experienced professionals will provide you with the best care possible and will help repair your injury so you can get back to doing all the things you love.
