Spinal and Musculoskeletal Physician

 

Many soft tissue, joint and spinal problems can be treated quickly and cost effectively by a Musculoskeletal Physician. His role supplements the assessment and ‘hands-on’ treatment of the Osteopath and is important to any multidisciplinary team. His skills lie between those of an Osteopath or Physiotherapist on the one hand and the Orthopaedic surgeon on the other. 

Assessment from the perspective of a Physician with extensive experience strengthens confidence in the diagnosis and broadens the range of treatment options available for many conditions. 
 
There is evidence for the treatment of conditions such as ‘frozen shoulder’, tennis elbow, bursitis, small joint arthritis and ligament sprains by local cortisone injection. Fibrositis and widespread and deepseated muscle spasm can respond to ‘dry needling’ or acupuncture.
 
The interpretation of X-ray and MRI scan findings in relation to the patient’s clinical condition is often central to the most appropriate treatment plan. There is sufficient published material to demonstrate that some patients suffering pain from nerve compression such as sciatica should be treated via epidural injection.
