Services & Specialties

  • Joints are formed by the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage serves as a protective cushion, allowing smooth and low-friction movement of the joint. If the cartilage becomes damaged by disease or injury, the tissues around the joint become inflamed, causing pain. With time, the cartilage wears away, allowing the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, causing more pain.

  • A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.

  • Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure during which the internal structure of a joint is examined for diagnosis and treatment of problems inside the joint. In arthroscopic examination, a small incision is made in the patient’s skin through which pencil-sized instruments that have a small lens and lighting system (arthroscope) are passed.

  • Physical therapy is one of the foremost necessary treatment modes of recovery for chronic pain.

    A physical therapist is a well-trained, skilled health care professional who facilitates improving movement and manages the pain by safe stretching, conditioning, and strengthening exercise techniques.

  • X-rays are waves of electromagnetic radiation that can penetrate through objects of low density. They are used in a branch of medicine called radiology to create images of the inner structures of the body such as the bones and organs. X-rays are one of the most common radiology procedures and are usually the first imaging tests to be performed.

  • MRI or magnetic resonance imaging scan is an imaging test that creates pictures of internal body structures (bones and soft tissues) with the help of magnetic fields and radio waves.

    The MRI can also be combined with other imaging techniques to provide a more definitive diagnosis. The scan is often used to clarify findings from previous X-rays or CT scans.

  • A bone mineral density or BMD test uses special low dose X-ray to measure the density of calcium and other minerals in your bones to assess bone strength. This test helps in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, a silent disease that thins and weakens bone and increases the risk of fractures.

  • Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with artificial parts. The knee is made up of the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone), and patella (kneecap). The meniscus, the soft cartilage between the femur and tibia, serves as a cushion and helps absorb shock during motion.

  • Sports injuries occur when playing indoor or outdoor sports or while exercising. They can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises. The most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures and dislocations.

  • Acupuncture involves the practice of introducing very thin needles into the skin to stimulate specific anatomical points in the body which have therapeutic benefits, known as acupoints or acupuncture points. The acupuncture needles are sterile, single-use with the same quality standards similar to that of other medical devices.

  • The DME Coordinator will provide proper fitting of orthopedic durable medical equipment (DME) as well as educate patients on the application, use, and care durable medical equipment (DME) products as instructed by the doctor and based on manufacture recommendations. Orthopedic braces are medical devices that can be used to support and align certain parts of the musculoskeletal system. They are often used during recovery from injury.

  • Naturopathy is a natural healing system that works towards the cure of diseases by utilizing the healing powers of nature. It is a science that integrates the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects of our natural constitution to eliminate toxins, prevent their accumulation, and restore good health.

  • Our blood consists of a liquid component known as plasma. It also consists of three main solid components which include the red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets. Platelets play an important role in forming blood clots. They also consist of special proteins, known as growth factors, which help with our body’s healing process. Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a high concentration of platelets and plasma. A normal blood specimen contains only 6% platelets, while platelet-rich plasma contains 94% of platelets and 5 to 10 times the concentration of growth factors found in normal blood, thus greater healing properties.

  • Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline which was first practiced in ancient India. There are various schools or types of yoga with different goals. Certain aspects of yoga in the form of low-impact physical exercise, meditation and other instructions have been shown to have numerous physical and mental benefits. These have been organized into a therapeutic system that is administered by a trained expert.

  • Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the unique potential of regeneration and differentiation into different types of cells. They act like a repair system replacing cells and tissue lost due to injury or disease. With increasing age however, there is a reduction in the number of stem cells available. Stem Cell Therapy is aimed at increasing the availability of stem cells at areas of tissue damage to enhance healing and regeneration.

  • Tai Chi is a Chinese tradition that is practiced as a graceful form of physical exercise. It involves a series of slow and controlled movements and postures accompanied by gentle breathing. Tai Chi can be used to safely improve joint mobility and function.
