Sports

Sports medicine is a highly specialized field of orthopedics and sports medicine. An orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine will select a treatment method for the patient that provides for high sports activity, as well as help to re-adapt the body to the exercises after injuries and surgeries. In recent years, due to the popularization of sports, the role of sports medicine has increased significantly, so regularly using the services of sports medicine experts is a wise decision for professionals and amateurs of any kind of sport.

Trauma

Traumatology is a section of clinical medicine, that studies the effect on the person of damaging factors mainly of mechanical nature, methods of their prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The main goal of this specialized field in orthopedics is to heal bone fractures and restore the anatomical relationship of articular surfaces, to ensure the earliest possible recovery of physiological functions of the damaged part of the body.

Injections

Arthritis, osteoarthritis and other joint diseases bring a person a lot of anguish. Sometimes it takes a long time to relieve pain and swelling with medication and physiotherapy. But the recovery process can be accelerated if you inject drugs directly into the joint using injections. Joint injections are a modern and highly effective method of treatment.

Surgery

Surgical orthopedics is a branch of surgery that deals with the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system through surgical intervention. The most important task of operative orthopedics and traumatology is to preserve the function and physiological motor activity of the operated organ. As a rule, before the application of surgical treatment, the doctor uses all the possibilities of conservative treatment: drug therapy, course of physical procedures, the use of orthopedic products (insoles, orthoses, fixators, corsets). The same applies to the period of post-surgical recovery. It is impossible without a well-equipped rehabilitation base: physiotherapy room, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, acupuncture and others.

Widely used methods of treatment of both traumatologic and orthopedic is local injection of drugs - blockade and puncture. Blockade is the introduction of a drug into the soft tissues, puncture is the introduction of a drug into the joint cavity. Both methods allow to deliver the drug directly to the focus of inflammation, to the center of pain, which increases the effectiveness of the drug and relieves pain sensations almost immediately.

Ozone Joint Therapy is a modern method of treatment in which a mixture of oxygen and ozone is injected into the periarticular area or directly into the joint itself. This procedure helps to energize the processes of production of cartilage tissue components, accelerate the production of joint fluid for better gliding. Ozone therapy also has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, which helps to combat the painful sensations that are very bothersome for patients with arthritis.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a local intra-articular or soft tissue injection of your own blood plasma. Plasma is blood that has been purified of its formative elements. It is achieved by centrifugation at certain parameters - time and speed. Useful substances concentrated in blood plasma increase the reparative ability of cells, increase their division, have an anti-inflammatory effect, improve tissue nutrition. In addition, this method is safe in that there are no allergic reactions, because it is injected with one's own plasma.

Intra-articular Steroid Injections eliminate pain, relieve inflammation, and neutralize heaviness in the joint area. Medicinal substances get directly into the problem area. The effect of their use is manifested quickly. Specialists select medicines based on the diagnosis of the patient and the characteristics of the clinical picture of the disease. Traditionally, anesthetics are prescribed, which can be supplemented with hormones. Intra-articular blockade allows you to return mobility to the joint, eliminating the discomfort present.

The number of injections to achieve a therapeutic effect is determined individually after a thorough examination and clarification of the circumstances of the application to the doctor.

The basis of the therapeutic effect of Shock Wave Therapy lies in the impact of a short shock sound wave in different frequency and force modes, which allows you to select the conditions for the necessary effect on deep or superficial tissues. When using this method improves blood supply to the tissues, increases the production of anti-inflammatory substances, there is a mechanical destruction of scarring and adhesions, increases the elasticity of ligaments, there is a stimulation of bone tissue.

This procedure is used for diseases of joints and tendons, delayed fracture healing, inflammatory processes in the ligaments, muscle spasms with overstrain, spine disease, development of joint movements at the stages of rehabilitation and much more.

Spinal traction is a therapeutic session in which a special machine slowly and gently stretches, thereby relaxing the deep muscles and tissues of the spine, increases the distance between the vertebrae, increases blood circulation. Due to the formation of negative pressure in the intervertebral area, including, decreases herniated disc protrusion into the spinal canal, which reduces pressure on the nerve root. This procedure is used in the treatment of disc bulges, sciatica, osteochondrosis, pinched nerves and many other conditions associated with back and neck pain.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive method in which an electric current from a special physiotherapy device is transmitted through small wires to electrodes attached to the skin. TENS can be used as an alternative or in addition to traditional pain therapy. This procedure is used to restore muscle strength without strain on the joints and fracture zone; to maintain muscles in a functional state, to treat acute and chronic pain syndrome, paresis and paralysis, normalization of muscle corset, neurorehabilitation (nerve damage), in sports medicine.

Both massage and manual therapy involve certain techniques that affect the patient's body. However, there is a significant difference between the two, which lies primarily in the fact that a massage therapist works exclusively with the soft tissues of the body. Whereas a chiropractor also affects the patient's bone structures and joints, as well as his cartilage and intervertebral discs, and even internal organs.

During a massage session, the work is done mainly with the soft tissues of the patient's body - the masseur eliminates congestion, relieves muscle spasm and tonifies them, while the chiropractor works primarily with joints, including intervertebral joints. The main purpose of the work of this specialist is to restore their normal mobility. Most often, such treatment includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, mobilization of joints and manipulation of joints.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation - is a method of treatment based on electrical stimulation of muscles and nerves, which is carried out by transmitting current with specified characteristics from the myostimulator to the human body through electrodes. The essence of the method consists in the fact that by applying an electric current of a certain shape and frequency in the motor points of the desired muscle is achieved: the response contractile reaction, improves the conductivity of the electrical impulse along the nerve, which activates the muscle, enhances metabolic processes responsible for maintaining muscle function, its nutrition, improves the regulation of the function performed by the muscle at the level of the cerebral cortex, accelerates the regeneration (recovery) of the affected nerve, improves blood and lymphatic flow in the muscle. This procedure is used to prevent muscle atrophy, which can occur, for example, after injuries to the musculoskeletal system, such as damage to bones, joints, ligaments and tendons.

Kinesiotaping is a revolutionary technique that provides permanent support for muscles and tendons, helping to reduce pain and inflammation. Kinesiotaping also helps to relax overstretched and tired muscles and accelerate the natural recovery process. At the same time, this method does not restrict freedom of movement and allows athletes to continue training and competition as usual, while conventional methods of taping (wrapping/strapping) involve fixation of joints and are intended only for stabilization and support during competition.

Kinesiotaping improves metabolism, muscle tone, lymphatic drainage, eliminates pain, unloads joints, eliminates bruises, relaxes connective tissue structures, and has an indirect effect on organs.
