Natural Treatment of Orthopedic Problems
Many people are under the impression that only the elderly suffer from orthopedic problems. Children and adolescents are also susceptible to orthopedic conditions.
In the case of children, some of these problems include Osgood-Schlatter disease (results from overuse and involves a condition or injury in the knee area causing pain and swelling), scoliosis (an abnormal curvature of the spine measuring 10 degrees or higher when seen from an Xray), and slipped capital femoral epiphysis (a condition affecting the hips of children).
For adults, orthopedic problems include surgery of the back, hip replacement, sports injury, knee surgery and severe joint pain and swelling. Various treatment programs for orthopaedic problems are available covering –
- Strengthening exercises
- Mobility improvement
- Increased ambulation (allowing an individual to get around)
- Range of motion
Depending on the severity of the orthopedic problem, a patient can be rehabilitated as an in-patient or as an out-patient. One of the more popular ways to overcome an orthopedic limitation and pain is aquatic therapy where patients are encouraged to do exercises in a warm water pool. Where necessary, a patient is outfitted with prostheses or spinal braces which are custom-designed as per an orthopedist’s specifications. Devices like walkers and supports are also some of the ways an orthopedic patient can cope with restricted mobility.
