A visit to a Riverside orthopaedic surgeon does not automatically mean surgery. In fact, our physicians use their skill and expertise to also determine how surgery can be avoided. While avoiding surgery certainly isn't possible for every patient, if you are interested in exploring non-surgical treatment options, you have come to the right place.
Your orthopaedic surgeon will first determine how serious your injury is and guide you in what treatment course will be most effective including reducing the likelihood of additional injury. For many patients, non-surgical treatment may be all that is needed.
Non-surgical treatments options include:
Non-surgical treatment may also include an exercise program for you to follow at home or at one of our Wellness and Fitness Centers. Your Riverside healthcare team, under the direction of your orthopaedic surgeon, will provide you with comprehensive non-surgical care plan called the Riverside Road to recovery.
