OrthoInfo was created to support orthopaedic surgeons in their discussions with patients by providing trustworthy and nonbiased online educational resources. Using OrthoInfo, doctors and other healthcare providers can share images, articles, and videos on various topics — from arthritis and sports injuries, to preparing patients for surgery, pain management, and recovery — from a mobile phone or tablet. Checklists help patients talk to their doctors about their medications, their existing medical conditions, and other factors that can impact the success of their surgery.

Staff can also email links or direct patients and caregivers to our OrthoInfo website for more information or to the TSAOG YouTube video playlist

All OrthoInfo articles and resources are developed by orthopaedic surgeons who are experts in their fields. The editorial team at AAOS then works to make more complex medical information easier to read and understand. All articles and resources are reviewed by orthopaedic surgeons on a regular basis to ensure that the information presented is up-to-date.

Please note that the unbiased, reliable information provided on OrthoInfo is not intended to serve as medical advice. This information is provided as an educational service. If you are seeking specific musculoskeletal advice or assistance, please consult with your orthopaedic surgeon. If you need an orthopaedic surgeon, you can search for one in your area by using the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ "Find an Orthopaedist" tool. American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) does not endorse any treatments, procedures, products, or physicians referenced herein.

TSAOG’s WorkSmart Industrial Rehabilitation Program focuses on the physical and behavioral rehabilitation of injured workers. 

Our Industrial Rehabilitation Center team is composed of licensed professionals providing high quality physical and behavioral care in an industrial rehabilitation setting. 

We strive to improve the work ethic of injured employees and return them to a healthy and employable condition so they may successfully rejoin the workforce. 

What We Do:

  • Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs)
  • Work Hardening
  • Work Conditioning
  • Functional Job Descriptions (FJD)
  • Post-Offer Employment Testing (POET)/Fit For Duty (FFD)

If you have suffered a work-related injury and have not been able to return to work following traditional physical therapy, your doctor may recommend industrial rehabilitation to facilitate your recovery. This type of program is a unique form of therapy referred to as either work hardening or work conditioning.

POETs and FFDs do not require Physician Referral, although if the applicant/employee/evaluator has concern, medical clearance may be required.

Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone in which you lose too much bone as you age, making your bones more porous than they should be and weakening their underlying structure. The more porous your bones become, the more likely they are to break.

If you are over the age of 50 and are treated for a fracture known to be indicative of osteoporosis, your physician may refer you for a Bone Health consultation. During your bone health consultation, a provider will work with you to:

  • Educate you on osteoporosis and why you are considered at risk.
  • Evaluate your specific case with a detailed history, physical, and referral for any additional testing necessary.
  • Establish a treatment plan, which might include lifestyle changes and medication to prevent further bone loss or even rebuild bone.

If you are over the age of 50 and experience one of the following types of fractures, you should be screened for osteoporosis:

  • Wrist (Distal Radius) Fracture
  • Spine (Vertebral) Fracture
  • Hip Fracture
  • Shoulder (Proximal Humerus) Fracture

That's why TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine created the Bone Health Program. Nationally Recognized Expertise in Preventing Fractures.

For patients presenting with joint pain due to arthritis, the first step is usually conservative treatment, which includes but is not limited to medication and physical therapy (or a home exercise program).

If conservative treatment is not successful, you will likely proceed to interventional methods or joint injections. The most common joint injections both seek to alleviate pain and increase range of motion. They are:

Steroid Injections (or corticosteroid injections) are used to treat inflammation, arthritis, and joint disease. They are commonly used in the knee, hip, and shoulder to relieve pain and swelling, but can also be used to treat pain in other joints including the elbow, wrist, and ankle.

There are benefits and drawbacks to steroid injections, including:

  • Fast Relief – Steroid injections typically offer relief within 24-48 hours of the injection.
  • Short-Term Relief – Pain relief from a steroid injection can last from 6-12 weeks.
  • Limitations on Repeat Use – Steroid injections are often most effective the first time, with subsequent injections losing their efficacy. These injections also cannot be given too frequently without a risk of weakening the surrounding structures of the joint.

Hyaluronic acid injections (also referred to as viscosupplementation) are used to treat osteoarthritis most commonly in the knee. The hyaluronic acid is injected back into the painful joint, coating and lubricating it to reduce friction and pain and increase the range of motion.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural lubricating component in the lining of your joints. However, as we age, our bodies produce this substance at a lower quantity and quality. In patients suffering from osteoarthritis, the hyaluronic acid thins even further, causing friction and pain as the joint operates.

Currently, the FDA has only approved viscosupplementation for use on the knee, but there is evidence to support its use in the hip and shoulder as well. These injections can be given safely if steroid injections have proven ineffective.

Speak to your physician to find out if hyaluronic acid injections may be a good option for you.

In most cases, insurance plans will cover the approved use of steroid injections and viscosupplementation. However, every insurance company has its own standards and guidelines, so it is best to verify your individual coverage prior to scheduling your joint injection.
