What is Orthopaedic Treatment?
Orthopaedic Treatment at our affiliated medical center offers a range of non-surgical treatments focusing on the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles throughout the body. The procedures available are Prolotherapy Injection, Steroid Injection, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Injections and Joint Preservation Cell Therapy Injection.
How It Works
In orthopaedics, it is important to have a proper consultation session to get clear information and the right treatment for your condition. Based on your health needs, the doctor may suggest the best option to treat your pain or disorder.
Treatments available are as follows:
· Prolotherapy Injection:
A procedure that involves an injection of a natural irritant into the soft tissue of an injured joint. It is also known as a regenerative joint injection. It is most commonly used for the back area. But the doctor may also use this therapy for other areas such as the knees, hips, shoulders and other joints and ligaments.
· Steroid Injection:
Also known as corticosteroid injections, this injection is used to treat a range of conditions such as joint pain, arthritis, sciatica and inflammatory bowel disease. Steroids ease inflammation and slow your immune system.
· PRP Injection:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of the patient's own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. The concentrated platelets can help to heal the body from within without the use of foreign substances.
· HA Injection:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural part of the fluid that helps lubricate and cushion your joints. HA injections may benefit people with osteoporosis or people who can't take certain types of painkillers.
· Joint Preservation Cell Therapy:
This treatment injects stem cells that have the ability to multiply and become new cells inside the human body. When injected into painful areas, these cells will naturally stimulate regeneration of cartilage cells, nerve cells and healing any injured tissues.

Q1: Will it be painful?
A1: As with any injections, some pain or discomfort may be felt. You may also notice pain increasing following the injection, but this will be bearable and the doctor will give some aftercare advice to manage the pain.
Q2: How long will the recovery take?
A2: This largely depends on your condition. Some may continue with light activities right away, while some may only start with light exercises after a few days or weeks after the treatment. The doctor can give you a good estimate.
Q3: Can I go back to work immediately?
A3: If you are not in too much pain then you can return to work immediately. But if your job is physically demanding and involves heavy lifting, it better to take some time off to let your body heal.
