It’s essential that you find out if your sports injury requires surgery. The Calgary Sports Medicine Doctor at National Spine Care is available for rapid consultation to help diagnose and determine if your problem needs surgery.
If you’re in pain, you need a local Calgary Sports Medicine Doctor to help with pain management. For decades, injections of cortisone were used by medical doctors to help reduce pain. This treatment was not always effective and left holes in pain management for the patient. Research studies are continuing to identify the flaw in conventional wisdom regarding cortisone injections.
Where does that leave the patient? A surgeon is frequently asked to cut open the body part and cut away damaged tissue, or insert a screw or plate to limit the movement of the painful joint.  But, as with many other treatments, there are no guarantees that surgery will eliminate your pain, and there is always a chance the surgery will make things worse. 
At National Spine Care, patients are asking their trusted Calgary Sports medicine Doctor about non-surgical and non-pharmacological alternatives to help reduce their pain. In response, they are pleased that the clinical staff includes a Sports and Exercise Medicine Physician to consult on all available non-surgical treatment options.
A growing number of clinics in Calgary are eager to offer these treatments. Your Sports Medicine Doctor is very excited to be ahead of the curve in offering this safe and effective, physician-delivered treatment right here in the Calgary office. Working in close communication with your Sports Medicine Doctor at NSC, Dr. Frank Johnson will offer you advise about which non-surgical treatment options are safe and likely to be effective.
Comprehensive pain management options are available in National Spine Care’s Calgary facility. Make an appointment with a Sports Medicine Doctor by calling 403-270-7252, and get back on track to your life.
