Non-Surgical Methods of Treatment
Surgical intervention is a path that is often chosen to manage certain conditions when other treatment methods fail. Patients of arthritis, serious neck injuries and herniated disc often have to go through complex surgical procedures so that they can return to normal activities. However, there are numerous patients who feel a strong sense of dread when they are told that they need to undergo surgery and would prefer less drastic forms of treatment. Over the years, the popularity of non-surgical methods has increased. Most doctors in London and other parts of UK prefer to attempt multiple non-surgical therapies and opt for surgery only as a last resort.
If you are someone who is experiencing major pains from a herniated disc, a knee problem, a major back pain or any other type of serious painful condition, then a professional medical expert can often try to resolve your problem using non-surgical methods. It is often thought that conservative treatments are only able to manage the pain and discomfort for a brief period of time. However, non-surgical methods like compression and physical therapy have been proven to be very effective in minimizing pain and helping patients return to a normal life.
One of the main reasons that many patients prefer non-surgical methods is that they consider them safer and less painful. The very thought that their bodies will be exposed to a surgical knife is something that can cause panic and anxiety. Moreover, surgical methods are typically very expensive and so many people with financial limitations prefer to avoid them. Fortunately, it has been proven time and again that compression, simple exercises, application of heat and cold, as well as other similar methods can have remarkable results.
In order to prescribe the most appropriate non-surgical treatment your doctor will need to consider your case on an individual basis. They will need to perform a range of diagnostic techniques, including a physical examination and medical imaging, as well as possibly blood tests. This can help your doctor to recommend the best non-surgical methods of treatment and explain how to understand your particular condition.
