Our goal is to preserve your joints, not replace them. We believe that taking an active role in preserving joint health is far more beneficial in the long run than shorter-term treatments or joint replacement. Our joint preservation approach helps to:
- Significantly reduce pain
- Extend the life of your joints
- Improve mobility
- Strengthen and protect cartilage
- Delay or prevent the need for joint replacement surgery
Our Joint Preservation Center takes a twofold approach to joint health for all our patients, by encouraging a combination of nonsurgical procedures and treatments with physical therapy and regular exercise to strengthen and preserve joint health before ever recommending surgery.
If you’re interested in an active, engaged form of joint care that incorporates treatments aimed at improving your joint health rather than just managing your symptoms, please don’t hesitate to send us an email or call us at 949-759-3600.
Joint Preservation in Athletes
Whether you’re a professional athlete or someone who spends their days playing sports just for fun, getting you back in the game as quickly as possible is our primary goal. In Dr. Venuto’s experience, surgery alone is not necessarily the most effective means of accomplishing this.
One of the biggest challenges in sports medicine is to find the correct balance between a fast recovery and a thorough one. Too often, the tendency is to rush through recovery in order to get back to your sport as quickly as possible. Incorporating additional treatments along with surgery, like PRP therapy, can help the joints heal better and faster for long-term benefits that extend far beyond this season’s playoffs.
Whether sports are your livelihood or your pastime, playing hard shouldn’t have to hurt. By incorporating joint preservation into your treatment and recovery, you can strengthen the right muscle groups to help avoid future injuries and keep you in the game longer.
Joint Preservation and Arthritis
Our patients have a lot of options for arthritis treatment in Newport Beach. What makes our approach different? We help patients maintain a high quality of joint and bone health long term rather than just masking the painful symptoms of arthritis.
It’s estimated that over 27 million people in the United States are affected by osteoarthritis, which is the most common form of the disease. As one of the leading causes of disability in the country, osteoarthritis is more common in those who are older, overweight or who have suffered a joint injury. Since osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease, the symptoms often worsen over time, eventually making even normal daily tasks painful and impacting your quality of life. Arthritis is particularly common in the knees, since the knee is a major weight-bearing joint.
Although there is no cure for arthritis, recent advances at our California orthopedics practice are capable of significantly decreasing the pain associated with arthritis as well as slowing down the progression of the disease so that joint replacement is not inevitable. Dr. Venuto’s approach is to use nonsurgical treatments whenever possible, as well as strength training, weight loss and patient-specific dietary supplements to help you regain whole-body health that will be further reflected through diminished joint pain.
A Comprehensive Approach
Whether experiencing pain from arthritic joints or frustrated by an injury that’s keeping you off the field or from performing daily tasks, you can improve your overall quality of life by incorporating our joint preservation techniques.
Our combination approach toward proactive joint health incorporates non-surgical treatments along with physical therapy, supplements, and a regular exercise regimen to help bring you back to health if you’re injured, and help prevent any future injuries if you’re whole. Although we can’t promise that you’ll never need joint surgery, we can ensure that every effort is made to find a nonsurgical solution whenever possible.
