For Any Condition. For Every Body.
What We Treat
Most times, the best treatment option is a referral to a Physical or Occupational Therapist to help regain range of motion, decreasing pain, and increasing strength in the affected area. Typically, the human body adapts and heals through movement, especially when guided by a trained musculoskeletal expert.
Injections directly into the affected site can often help with acute pain. Based on your condition, response to treatment, and your physician’s recommendations, additional injections may be necessary. Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance offers ultrasound-guided injections to visualize the area of concern in real time and optimize your treatment’s effectiveness.
Your physician may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications to reduce pain, muscle spasm, inflammation, and more. This will depend on your specific needs, symptoms, and other factors surrounding your condition.
Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance physicians only make recommendations for surgical interventions when all other conservative measures have been exhausted, or it is apparent that the only available solution is surgery. This is always a collaborative decision. It’s important you feel empowered to make the best choice for you, with your goals and timelines in mind.
How It Works
The process begins with an initial appointment, the length of which varies based on your condition.
More complex issues will require more time with your physician, especially if you have multiple musculoskeletal conditions.
Our patient-centric approach means we conduct individualized tests and studies based on your physical examination. Tests may include:
- Digital X-Ray
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Electromyograms (EMG) & Nerve Conduction Studies
- And Other Medical Technologies
Our passion for patient education means we will always take time to thoroughly explain your diagnosis and outline what to expect for your specific injury.
Once we have the results of your diagnostic testing, we pair those results with the information we collect in our comprehensive examination.
We use all of this to outline treatment options, a plan of care, and expectations about your recovery.
During your first appointment and follow-up appointments, our physicians typically recommend conservative measures before turning to surgery.
We strive to achieve your desired outcome through the least invasive route possible.
Therefore, we will only suggest surgery when it is the best option for alleviating your symptoms.
This is part of our dedication to bringing value to our patients as the largest orthopedic practice in Kansas City.
