So many occupations and everyday activities require spending hours repeating the same movements. Topping the list are the computer and other digital devices that have become omnipresent at work and during our leisure hours. Jobs like construction, maintenance and hairstyling; and household tasks including cleaning and gardening also fall into the same category.
When these activities result in lingering pain, weakness, numbness or tingling, you may have a repetitive motion, or repetitive strain injury. That’s when it is time to visit the orthopedists at the offices of New York Orthopedic Specialists. Our doctors specialize in the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints that make up the body’s musculoskeletal system, which are absolutely essential to our mobility. We take so many of our everyday movements for granted, that is, until they become painful. But our orthopedic specialists have the experience and state-of-the-art technology to address these common but debilitating injuries.
Our orthopedists have an array of options for treating repetitive stress injuries, including braces, medications to control the pain and reduce the inflammation, prescribing a course of physical therapy, and potentially corrective surgery. We perform a thorough examination and then may recommend further testing before reaching a diagnosis. Each of our patient’s physical characteristics are different, and our diagnosis and treatment recommendations will differ based on a patient’s age, overall health and fitness level.
Don’t let a repetitive motion injury linger to the point where it keeps you out of work, or robs you of the pleasure you get from your favorite activities. The trusted orthopedists at the offices of New York Orthopedic Specialists have successfully treated many patients affected by this debilitating injury in our modern, comfortable facility, and we can do the same for you. There’s no reason to delay. Take this important step toward improving your health by contacting us today to arrange an appointment.
