- If necessary, X-rays of the involved areas will be performed. To see is to know, not to see is to guess, and we will not guess about your health.
- Once a formal diagnosis is made your treatment options will be discussed with you.
Importance of Movement
As we exercise we tend to get injuries to the muscles, joints, and tendons. The previous standard of care was to rest, but research has found that as our activities cease, out muscle strength and function decrease as a result. This loss in strength and function can add to greater instability of the injured areas and prolong the recovery process. Your doctor will work with you to implement corrective exercises in a manner to best suit your needs.
