Many medical doctors are quick to suggest surgery and medication as a solution to a joint problem. At Louisville Medical Center in Colorado, we want you to know that we have better pain solutions for you.
In our experience, we have found that surgery can often create other joint problems. And those patients experiencing more problems after surgery end up coming to see us. Here’s why surgery to repair a joint injury is frequently neither necessary nor ideal…
Surgery is both invasive and expensive when it comes to treating joint injuries. And no matter how good your insurance is, it won’t cover the whole thing. That means that you’ll be spending money out of your own pocket to cover the cost of surgery. At the same time, it can take as many as several months to recover from joint surgery. So you can also plan on missing more work or missing out on more of the activities you enjoy. So before you try surgery, we recommend that you try a less invasive pain solution.
Joint injuries are increasingly common as we age. Typically, joint injuries are the direct result of either an individual trauma or excessive use over time that damages the surrounding ligaments. Your ligaments act like the rubber bands of your joint. They are situated on either side of your joint, and they hold everything together. In essence, your ligaments keep everything moving and functioning normally. When your ligaments and/or surrounding muscles become stretched or torn due to a trauma, the injury is called a sprain. The severity of an injury, or sprain, can vary depending on the extent of the damage – which can range from mild to severe.
Muscle and ligament strains and sprains can cause symptoms including pain, swelling, and sometimes the inability to move the joint. Ligaments have two distinctive qualities that make joint injuries both painful and slow to heal. Ligaments have a limited blood supply, which reduces the capability of your tissues to replenish nutrients and repair your joint. And ligaments contain an extensive number of nerve endings, which can lead to intense discomfort if they become damaged.
The good news is that you can avoid joint surgery! And you can experience both faster pain relief and better healing through modern medical methods. The key is to get to the bottom of the injury and help your joint heal in a more direct way.
