How We Can Help
- Arthritis: The multi-step arthritis treatment program from our Newport Beach practice includes Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, viscosupplementation, strength training, weight loss, bracing, activity modification and patient specific dietary supplements. This approach focuses on preserving the joint and protecting cartilage rather than surgical joint fusion or replacement.
- Ligament Injuries: Not every ligament injury requires surgery for correction. A combination of bracing therapy, PRP therapy, over-the-counter NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen), and behavior modification can complement physical therapy to ease strain on the ligament that could lead to further injury.
- Rotator Cuff Repair: Dr. Venuto conducts a thorough evaluation of your injury to determine whether a nonsurgical approach can heal your rotator cuff tear. Getting lots of rest, alternating icing and heating of the shoulder and physical therapy can work together to strengthen shoulder muscles and ligaments and restore range of motion in the shoulder.
- Sports Medicine: As a sports enthusiast himself, Dr. Venuto understands your need to get back in the game as quickly as possible, without rushing your recovery. A nonsurgical approach is often the best method to deliver lasting joint improvement and prevent future injuries.
