Performance Orthopedics

What we do

Philosophy

Performance Orthopedics not only analyzes and treats the specific injury, but evaluates the entire patient and performance status and determines the root cause of the injury in an effort to prevent more problems from occurring down the road or in other areas of the body. Could recurrent shin splints be a result of weak core muscles? Could persistent knee pain be helped by correcting fallen arches in the foot? Would different running shoes correct the heel pain?


Services

Performance orthopedics will feature state of the art diagnostic tools such as digital x-ray, in-office diagnostic ultrasound, computerized foot analysis for the customization of orthotics, and a gait/running analysis center. We will perform thorough evaluations of the patient and athlete in an effort to identify potential problem areas and then will make recommendations on specific exercise and strength training programs that can be used to prevent further injuries and maximize performance.

Consultations & Evaluations

An in-depth review of a patient’s complaint, associated history and symptoms; followed by a thorough physical examination, leading to. Comprehensive, personalized treatment plan. We can also offer an unbiased review of current or prior care to help clarify or augment a treatment recommendation.

NOVOCAINE: to assist with acute pain relief and to assist in the diagnosis of a condition
STEROID: To assist with longer term pain relief by placing medication directly into the area that is injured
HYALURONIC ACID: A medication which mimics the bodies own joint fluid which can help lubricate degenerative joints and assist in improving function and decreasing pain
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP): Using a patient’s own blood and extracting a concentrated plasma solution which is rich in components that modulate healing
FLUOROSCOPIC/ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE: Fluoroscopic/Ultrasound Guidance – Performance orthopedics utilizes that latest available technologies to assist in needle placement to assure that the injections deliver the medication to the precise area intended.

Digital Imaging

Digital imagery is used to evaluate and diagnose injuries to the soft tissues, ligaments, and tendons.

X-RAY: In office, digital X-Ray with the ability to have real time motion imagery of bones and joints to assist in he diagnosis of traumatic, sports-related and degenerative conditions. This X-Ray can also be utilized to improve the precision of injections.
ULTRASOUND: Many times for injuries such as Achilles tendon ruptures, in office ultrasound, can save the patient the added time and expense of additional testing such as an MRI.

Orthotics/Shoe Inserts

A full line of fracture boots, braces, splints and casts which enable proper immobilization if needed or the added stability to get patients back to their activity of choice as quickly as possible.

OVER-THE-COUNTER INSERTS: These are available to provide added support at lower cost than customized inserts.
CUSTOMIZED SHOE INSERTS: Computerized gait assisted evaluation of the patients foot helps us evaluate how each individual patient’s foot reacts to the ground. This allows for customized inserts to be created to help with arch support, pain relief, and hopefully improve performance.
