Whether you have a condition such as back and sciatic pain, PCL knee injury or plantar fasciitis, you may benefit from working with a local physiotherapist. A local physiotherapist is a healthcare professional who helps patients manage pain and improve mobility and well-being. You may also work with a local orthopedic surgeon, who specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system (the joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves and muscles). Whether you need orthopedic surgery such as an MCL knee surgery or are in a rehabilitation program for your orthopedic condition, a local orthopedic surgeon and local physiotherapist can help you recover and rehabilitate from your condition.
When consulting a local orthopedic surgeon make sure to ask about your physiotherapy education in regards to your operation. Often seeing your local family Physician is a great starting place for referrals to your local Massage Therapist or your local chiropractor to help with massage and skeletal adjustments. A local Physiotherapist or local athletic trainer can help with strength and bruised muscles. Acupuncture is often recommended for chronic pain in association with your local physiotherapist
Orthopedic physicians specialize in diagnosing and treating orthopedic injuries and conditions such as: Bursitis: The inflammation and swelling of a bursa, a fluid-filled sac that usually forms over the joints. It acts as a cushion between the bones and tendons. The most common cause is repetitive movements.
