Your orthopaedic specialist has diagnosed your injury or condition. Now it’s time to explore your treatment options.
What’s the best treatment for you? Your best treatment plan depends on your condition or injury, how severe it is, and other health factors. Your doctor will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. This plan might include medication, rehab, and/or surgery (including Regenexx® regenerative stem cell therapy).
Are there any other treatment options? You may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial. You’ll get access to cutting-edge research and treatments not yet available to the public.
Can you get care just for athletes? Yes. If you have severe or frequent sports injuries, your doctor may refer you to a sports medicine primary care doctor. Your sports medicine doctor understands the concerns and issues unique to athletes.
What about pain management? No matter what treatment your doctor recommends, you and your orthopaedic team will build an effective pain management plan to help you recover better and faster.
How can you prepare if you need surgery? Before surgery, you want to know what to expect. Your orthopaedic team will give you instructions for your specific surgery. It’s also important to understand what life will be like after surgery.
Be familiar with your treatment plan, and get the help and support you need for a successful recovery.
