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.

Soft tissue injuries refer to damage or trauma to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other soft tissues in the body. These injuries can result from sudden trauma, overuse, repetitive motion, or underlying medical conditions. Soft tissue injuries can manifest as strains, sprains, contusions, or tendonitis, causing pain, swelling, bruising, and limited range of motion. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue injuries, offering comprehensive care to promote healing and restore function.

When you experience a soft tissue injury, it can significantly impact your mobility and quality of life, making it challenging to perform daily activities or engage in physical exercise. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a thorough assessment of your injury, often utilizing physical examination maneuvers and imaging studies such as ultrasound or MRI to accurately diagnose the extent and severity of the soft tissue damage.

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

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE): Initially, we may recommend the RICE protocol to reduce pain and inflammation, promote healing, and prevent further tissue damage.
  • Physical therapy: Our experienced physical therapists design specialized rehabilitation programs focused on restoring strength, flexibility, and function to the injured soft tissues, promoting proper biomechanics, and preventing recurrence of injury.
  • Manual therapy: We offer hands-on techniques such as massage therapy, myofascial release, and joint mobilization to alleviate muscle tension, improve tissue flexibility, and enhance healing of soft tissue injuries.
  • Modalities: We utilize modalities such as ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, or laser therapy to promote tissue healing, reduce pain, and improve circulation to the injured area.
  • Regenerative medicine: We offer innovative regenerative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or stem cell therapy to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and promote tissue repair for chronic or severe soft tissue injuries.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: In cases of persistent pain or limited response to conservative treatments, we may offer minimally invasive procedures such as ultrasound-guided injections or percutaneous needle tenotomy to target and treat the underlying cause of soft tissue injuries effectively.

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

We offer everything from chiropractic care to massage therapy to acupuncture. And our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure you get the best possible care.
