Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries typically refer to any kind of injury to the musculoskeletal system. These injuries are typically related to our bones and joints, often as a result of physical trauma due to an accident or sudden force. Holistic Healing Center provides a unique approach to pain that combines physical therapy with integrated medicine to help treat a wide range of conditions.

Common Orthopedic Injuries

Neck and Back Pain

Neck and back pain can often be difficult to describe and diagnose, but it’s most commonly due to a problem with the structures that support our spine and joints. This includes the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When these three structures are not in harmony, it can cause a number of neck and back problems that typically result in pain. However, not all neck and back pain is caused by an underlying condition. Sometimes, it’s down to overusing our muscles, straining our joints, or even engaging in too much physical activity.

TMJ / TMD Treatment

Basic mouth and jaw functions are controlled by the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It connects your jawbone to your skull, acting as a sliding hinge that allows you to open and close your mouth and move your jaw. When you experience pain in these areas, it’s known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). This could occur during everyday mouth functions such as talking, chewing, and swallowing.

Shoulder Injuries

We rely on our shoulders a lot more than you think. We use them to lift heavy objects, press against things, lift ourselves, and even pull things. If you’re experiencing pain in your shoulders, then there could be a number of different causes such as rotator cuff tendonitis or bursitis.

Hips

The hip joint is a complex joint known as a ball and socket joint. It refers to the femur bone (the ball) that fits into the acetabulum (the socket). Pain can often occur in your hip as a result of imbalances or overuse. This includes tight muscle structures, pinching, or pelvic floor dysfunction. These conditions can lead to wear and tear of your joints and eventually long-term pain.

Knee Injuries

Knee pain typically occurs due to the muscles surrounding the knee or the muscles around the hip joint. By strengthening these weakened muscles, it can help strengthen your knee and remove any pain that you may be experiencing.

Elbow, Wrist & Hand Injuries

The human hand is a feat of natural engineering that is deceptively simple at first glance. Even the most basic of hand movements requires multiple different joints and muscles along our arm to work together in unison. We often overlook these connections when we experience pain in the elbow, wrist, or hand. When pain occurs in these areas, it can be a dull pain, a throbbing ache, or even a feeling of numbness. Diagnosing the injury can be challenging, but the Holistic Healing Center can help you evaluate your pain and produce an effective treatment plan.

Foot and Ankle Injuries

Foot and ankle injuries can often occur as a result of physical activity (such as sport) or due to old age which reduces our joint strength and mobility. This can cause a lot of pain, but there are ways to treat it using non-surgical methods.

Holistic Healing treats people even if they don’t have an actual injury

Pain doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s an underlying condition affecting you. It could be that you’re overworking your body and depriving it of rest. You could also be experiencing pain because of inflammation caused by your diet. This can ultimately cause pain in the body and may lead to arthritis if left unchecked.
