Orthopaedic medicine is provided by orthopaedic physicians, specialists in orthopaedic conditions
without the use of surgery.
Most people agree that surgery should be the last resort yet most patients who suffer spinal pain are referred to see surgeons even if surgery is not likely to be considered.
Reflexology uses the feet to stimulate corresponding zones within the body to bring about balance
and normal function. It is a relaxing foot massage in which thumbs and fingers are used to gently
press Reflex points all over the foot and ankle.
It is a pressure point therapy which uses 10 Meridian lines or zones which cover the entire body and head.
Corticosteroid or Ostenil injections to joints and soft tissues
This can be used to treat frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement syndrome and osteoarthritis of the knee, tennis elbow, golfers elbow and De Quervain’s amongst other conditions. Esin has many years of experience in injection therapy having offered this service both in private practice and in NHS clinics.
You will need an initial consultation to establish that this is an appropriate treatment for you in that there are no contraindications and that your GP is happy for you to undergo this treatment.
Hylanoric acid or Ostenil is a safe alternative to cortisone injection and has been found to be effective in treating shoulder and knee problems. This is a supplement rather than a drug. It increases the viscosity of the joint fluid and is thought to have an anti-inflammatory effect.
