Surgery Is NOT the Answer to Joint Injuries

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.

You Can Avoid Joint Surgery

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.

Your medical team at Louisville Medical Center will assess your health issues and create a customized care plan. Your doctor can help you with the following joint injury symptoms:

Innovative Treatment for Joint Injuries

At Louisville Medical Center in Colorado, we offer innovative treatments to heal your joint injury. Our FDA-approved joint injections are focused on the specific area of application. These specialized injections contain corticosteroids that reduce inflammation and swelling. They will also improve the blood supply feeding your ligaments and surrounding tissues.

The science of repairing joint injuries is simple! Normal blood flow is essential to joint injuries and all healing. Think of your blood as the food that your internal body parts need to fully function. Corticosteroids are also important for protein and carbohydrate metabolism in your joint. As blood flow and nutrients surge into your damaged joint, your tissues are able to replenish their supplies and begin to repair your joint.

You can experience quick and complete healing with this inpatient procedure. Our targeted, FDA-approved joint injections will boost the natural healing process. Plus they’re quick, and you won’t experience any downtime. So you can avoid expensive surgery, lost time from work, and the extended need for prescription pain relief. And you can get back to doing the things you love.
