Understanding Nonsurgical Orthopedic Care

If you’ve been in an accident, you may have sustained multiple physical, mental, or emotional injuries. It’s essential to seek proper medical care to ensure you properly recover from your injuries and don’t suffer from long-term pain or immobility. Injuries to your joints, bones, muscles, and ligaments can be complex, and on many occasions, these can be treated without resorting to surgery. Nonsurgical orthopedic care is a less invasive treatment option and is suitable for many patients. 

What Is Nonsurgical Orthopedic Care?

A noninvasive treatment option, nonsurgical orthopedic care can help heal musculoskeletal damage. It may not be an acceptable option for deformities or complex injuries. Still, many patients prefer to start with nonsurgical orthopedics as a first line of defense before surgery. It’s important to consider this option first before undergoing a complex surgical procedure. 

Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

Physical therapy and rehabilitation are among the most prevalent nonsurgical orthopedic care options. When you undergo physical therapy, joints and muscles are strengthened, and mobility is slowly regained. Some of the physical conditions that may be treated with physical therapy and rehabilitation include:

  • Back pain 
  • Neck pain
  • Strains
  • Arthritis
  • Sprains

Sometimes, after surgery is performed, physical therapy is prescribed. In some cases, physical therapy can be the primary treatment option. The physical therapists are trained especially to match the patient’s needs, considering physical ability, overall health, and diagnosis when developing a treatment plan.
