Our Orthopaedic unit offers prevention, diagnosis and management of various orthopaedic conditions related to sports and lifestyle in collaboration with our physiotherapist and exercise specialist. Our onsite Rheumatologist can support patients manage orthopaedic conditions such as osteoporosis to help maintain an active lifestyle.
Sports injuries often occur as a result of errors in training and activity and can often be prevented by understanding how the body responds to exercise. Poor quality equipment can also play a role. Once an injury has occurred, early diagnosis is important. This can usually be achieved with good history taking and examination but imaging is often necessary. Most of the injuries can be treated by applying relative rest, physical therapy and the principles of rehabilitation. Occasionally orthosis, medication and injections are required. In rare cases only, the surgery is required. We are therefore very keen to encourage our patients to exercise in a safe and effective way to improve their wellbeing and to reduce their medication requirements.
