Non-surgical Orthopedic Care Q&A

Why would I need nonsurgical orthopedic care?

You might need nonsurgical orthopedic care if you have persistent pain that results from an injury or an underlying disease. Dr. Shah also provides customized orthopedic care if your condition limits what you can do physically or causes a significant disability.
Some of the most common orthopedic conditions Dr. Shah treats include:

  • Joint Arthritis
  • Spinal Fractures
  • Spinal stenosis and sciatica
  • Neck and Low back pain
  • Pain after neck or back surgery
  • Nerve pain/Neuropathy

You can also receive comprehensive care for orthopedic injuries that occur due to sports, work-related accidents, and auto accidents.

What nonsurgical orthopedic care services are available?

Catering to your unique needs and specific type of pain, Dr. Shah offers a wide variety of nonsurgical orthopedic care services. He customizes your treatment plan and focuses on relieving persistent pain and improving your overall mobility.

To treat your underlying condition, Dr. Shah may recommend one or a combination of treatments like:

  • Bracing
  • Nerve blocks
  • Joint injections
  • Viscosupplementation or “gel” 
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Spinal cord stimulation

Dr. Shah also offers regenerative medicine that uses the power of your own body’s healing processes to treat chronic pain. Regenerative medicine involves injections of stem cells or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate the regeneration of new, healthy cells. These new cells replace old, damaged cells so that you can heal more efficiently from the inside out.

To determine which treatments are right for you, Dr. Shah reviews your medical history and your existing health. He uses on-site diagnostic testing to confirm the underlying cause of your pain or disability to create the optimal treatment plan for your needs.

What are the benefits of nonsurgical orthopedic care?

Many of the available nonsurgical orthopedic therapies effectively ease chronic pain in your hips, knees, lower back, neck, and shoulder. These therapies can often provide fast and long-lasting pain relief and can often delay or prevent the need for surgery.

Nonsurgical orthopedic therapies may also help reduce your reliance on oral pain-relieving medications that can interfere with your physical activity and ability to work.

Some of the therapies, especially regenerative medicine, can provide long-lasting, effective pain relief by healing the root cause of your pain, so you may not need more invasive treatments or surgery.
