Diagnostic Imaging

The first step in any successful treatment is getting the correct diagnosis. For that reason, before our team moves forward with your care, we’ll use various types of diagnostic imaging, including MRI, X-rays, and ultrasound. Musculoskeletal imaging, in particular, is quite accurate at identifying the source of the issue, as it enables us to view the inside of a joint while the body is in motion. Hence, the patient receives more precise treatment and has a better experience overall.

Holistic Medical Options

Our holistic treatments include manual therapy and osteopathic manipulation. Both of these hands-on methods of care have been proven to speed up healing and even provide immediate pain relief. As a result, patients can enjoy improved function and comfort without the expenses and risks of surgery or the side effects of various medications.

When people discuss chest pain, they overwhelmingly reference heart-related issues, but chest pain can also be the result of an injured or strained chest wall. Due to its proximity to the lungs and heart, treating the chest requires extreme precision. With our diagnostic ultrasound, though, our team can handle the intricacies of diagnosing and treating non-cardiac chest wall pain with ease, resulting in life-changing relief that lasts.

Do you wake up with a headache nearly every morning? Do you end up losing entire days because a migraine keeps you from getting out of bed? While the majority of treatments for chronic headaches simply manage the pain, our experts aim to detect the root cause of your pain for direct treatment. We can help strained muscles in the head relax immediately with solutions like cranial osteopathy and Botox injections. From there, we can help you discover the perfect way to eliminate your headaches and migraines going forward.

Percutaneous Tenotomy

As complex as its name sounds, percutaneous tenotomy is actually quite straightforward. With this technique, we use ultrasound to remove the compromised tissue of an injured tendon, alleviating the pain and dysfunction that it was causing. This treatment can be adjusted so that any healthy tissue is preserved while the damaged tissue is removed. In cases like these, the vast majority of patients make a full recovery in as little as two to six weeks.

Nerve Hydrodisection

Animated nerves in need of nerve hydrodisection

Many nerve pathways throughout the body are located in tight spaces in muscle tissue. When these muscles experience swelling or inflammation, it places pressure on the adjacent nerves and induces numbness and/or intense pain. Our specialists can assuage this discomfort with nerve hydrodissection. They’ll inject a protective fluid that forms a coating around the afflicted nerve. This barrier encourages the compression to decrease, thereby soothing the pain and restoring function to that area of the body.

TMJ Problems

Your jaw is able to move in all directions thanks to your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It’s also responsible for your ability to chew and talk. The TMJ, like any other joint in the body, is vulnerable to strain, injury, or even arthritis, which may cause uncomfortable stiffness and pain that radiates throughout the head and neck. In fact, TMJ disorder is a lesser-known reason for chronic migraines. We can soothe tense jaw muscles and relieve TMJ pain with solutions like manual therapy, cranial osteopathy, and even Botox injections.

Joint Injections

At the Institute for Non-Surgical Orthopedics, we offer various interventional injections that can relieve a patient's joint pain, quicken the recovery process, and ultimately give them back the mobility they used to have. Better yet, we use ultrasound technology to guide all of our injections, ensuring that no matter which medicinal solution we’re administering, it is applied in the exact location it needs to be for maximized results.

Splinting, Strapping, Bracing

These traditional and conservative treatments are still used today for one simple reason – they work! Our doctors may recommend splinting, strapping, and/or bracing an aching joint or muscle as our first course of action. Alternatively, we may suggest them in tandem with other therapies as a means of speeding up the healing process, minimizing discomfort, and improving a patient’s mobility as soon as possible.

Manual Therapy

While manual therapy may look like an ordinary massage, this treatment provides so much more than mere relaxation. One of our specialists moves a part of a patient’s body in a gentle, methodical manner to encourage blood flow, which can expedite healing. Additionally, these motions are carefully designed to negate the signals from the brain that are creating the sensation of pain. So, a patient will feel much freer and more relaxed after a manual therapy session, but in truth, we’ve accomplished much more in terms of their health!

  • Craniosacral Therapy

Physical Therapy
