Nonsurgical solutions for knee, hip, wrist and shoulder pain
While Dr. Bruce Perry is renowned for his advanced surgical care, he will recommend surgery only if necessary and appropriate. A simple problem may have a very simple, non-invasive solution, so we always consider that first.
The traditional nonsurgical treatment options we offer include:
Casting, bracing and taping: These therapies can be used to stabilize fractured or injured bones, muscles and joints and give them time to heal. If you have had a sports injury, we may get you back into practice or the game with a brace or tape during the healing process.
Physical therapy: When appropriate, Dr. Perry will recommend physical therapy as the most conservative treatment for your pain and provide direction to your therapist so you get the maximum benefit.
Injections: Injected medication can be used to reduce inflammation and/or pain and help the body heal naturally. For some injuries, a single injection or series of injections may be all you need for permanent relief.
