As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Acute injuries refer to sudden, traumatic injuries that occur as a result of accidents, falls, collisions, or other unforeseen events. These injuries can affect various parts of the body, including bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues, and can range from minor sprains and strains to more severe fractures or dislocations. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of acute injuries, offering prompt and comprehensive care to promote healing and minimize long-term complications.

When you experience an acute injury, it can be a distressing and painful experience that requires immediate attention to prevent further damage and facilitate recovery. Our team of orthopedic specialists is experienced in managing a wide range of acute injuries and understands the importance of prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Treatment options for acute injuries at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Immediate first aid: For minor acute injuries such as sprains or strains, we may recommend the RICE protocol (rest, ice, compression, and elevation) to reduce pain and swelling and promote healing.
  • Splinting or immobilization: For more severe acute injuries such as fractures or dislocations, we may immobilize the affected area with a splint, cast, or brace to prevent further movement and stabilize the injury while it heals.
  • Reduction: In cases of dislocations or joint misalignments, we may perform a reduction procedure to manually realign the bones and restore normal joint anatomy.
  • Pain management: We offer various pain management techniques such as medications, nerve blocks, or corticosteroid injections to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with acute injuries.
  • Rehabilitation: Following the acute phase of treatment, we provide comprehensive rehabilitation programs focused on restoring strength, mobility, and function to the injured area, promoting tissue healing, and preventing recurrence of injury.
  • Surgical intervention: In cases of severe or complex acute injuries that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair or reconstruct damaged tissues and restore function.

Our team of experts will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.
