What is holistic orthopedic care?

Holistic orthopedic care is an integrative approach that combines conventional orthopedic treatments with complementary therapies such as movement-based physiotherapy, nutritional guidance, supplementation, and minimally invasive surgeries. This method focuses on treating the entire person rather than just the symptoms, promoting overall well-being, and preventing future health issues. By addressing physical, nutritional, and lifestyle factors, holistic orthopedic care aims to enhance recovery, reduce pain, and improve the quality of life for patients. 

What types of conditions do you treat?

Our clinic treats a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including arthritis, osteoporosis, joint pain, sports injuries, and age-related musculoskeletal issues. We also address conditions like tendinitis, bursitis, fractures, and spinal disorders. By providing a comprehensive assessment and personalized treatment plans, we aim to restore function, alleviate pain, and improve the overall health of our patients, whether they are dealing with chronic conditions or acute injuries. 

What is movement-based physiotherapy?

Movement-based physiotherapy involves tailored exercise programs and physical activities designed to improve mobility, strength, flexibility, and overall physical function. These programs are created based on a detailed assessment of the patient’s condition and goals. Techniques may include stretching, strength training, balance exercises, and functional movements. The goal is to enhance the body’s natural healing processes, prevent further injury, and promote long-term physical health through regular, guided physical activity. 

What are PRP therapies and how do they work?

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting this concentrated plasma into the injured or affected area. Platelets contain growth factors that promote tissue repair and regeneration. PRP therapy is used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including tendonitis, ligament injuries, and osteoarthritis. The goal is to accelerate the healing process, reduce inflammation, and decrease pain, leading to improved function and mobility. 

What are fluid supplements for joints?

Fluid supplements, such as hyaluronic acid injections, are used to lubricate and cushion the joints. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the joint fluid that helps maintain joint health. Injections can help alleviate pain, improve joint mobility, and delay the need for more invasive treatments like surgery. These supplements are particularly beneficial for patients with osteoarthritis, as they can reduce friction in the joints, decrease inflammation, and provide a more comfortable range of motion. 

How do you personalize treatment plans?

Personalizing treatment plans involves a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s medical history, current health status, lifestyle, and specific health goals. We use this information to design a tailored approach that may include a combination of therapies such as physiotherapy, nutritional counseling, supplementation, and surgical interventions. Regular follow-ups and adjustments to the plan ensure that it remains effective and responsive to the patient’s progress and changing needs, ultimately leading to better health outcomes. 

What can I expect during my first visit?

During your first visit, you will undergo a thorough evaluation, which includes discussing your medical history, symptoms, and any previous treatments. A physical examination will be conducted to assess your condition. Based on this evaluation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. You will receive detailed information about your diagnosis, the proposed therapies, and the expected outcomes. This visit is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to set realistic goals for your recovery and health improvement. 

What should we wear during a physiotherapy session?

For a physiotherapy session, it is important to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows for a full range of motion. Athletic wear such as shorts, leggings, t-shirts, and athletic shoes are ideal. Avoid wearing restrictive clothing or jewelry that could interfere with your movements. Your physiotherapist may need to access certain areas of your body, so wearing appropriate attire helps facilitate the treatment and ensures you can perform exercises comfortably and effectively. 

Can we still do our personal and usual workout plans even if we're undergoing physical therapy?

Yes, you can often continue your personal workout routines while undergoing physical therapy, but it is crucial to discuss this with your physiotherapist. They can provide guidance on which exercises are safe and beneficial for your specific condition. Some modifications to your routine may be necessary to avoid aggravating your injury or condition. The goal is to complement your physical therapy with your workout plan to enhance your recovery and overall fitness, ensuring that you stay active without risking further injury.
