Surgery and Recovery in Falmouth

Steroid treatment are less aggressive than surgery. We use this to increase the flexibility of the joints. One way steroid work is to relax the ligaments so your movements are more fluide. When joint tissue has been worn away from bone, it causes friction and pain. The following injects are used for long term relief.
Steroid Injections Include:
Used to treat and cushion joints from pain associated with osteoarthritis.
Acts as a shock absorber and lubricate bones for smooth movement.
Injected as a lubricant used for pain relief that will last for months.
Surgery is another method we use to treat shoulder, knee, and arthritis pain. It is a major procedure that requires post care and plenty of rest. However, surgery is a more permanent solution. Most procedures are outpatient procedures.
