    Treating Stress Fractures

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Runners frequently incur tibial stress fractures when training for long-distance runs. If not treated properly, a stress fracture can cause progressive damage to the bone and severe pain that may limit your running.

    This video explains how tibial stress fractures occur and how they are treated. Following injury, the affected leg is encased in a supportive boot and crutches are recommended for two to six weeks. Physical therapy is used to strengthen the calf and restore flexibility to reduce the likelihood of re-injury once you resume running.

    If you are experiencing pain while running, playing sports, or performing daily activities, professional diagnosis and treatment is essential to a healthy recovery. Contact Suburban Orthopaedics of Bartlett by calling (888) 876-0117 to find out more about our sports medicine and physical therapy options.

    When Should You Seek Professional Pain Management?

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Severe or chronic pain can limit your ability to complete daily tasks and may diminish your quality of life. Up to 40% of adult Americans live with chronic pain that affects their ability to live a normal life. Professional pain management offers a variety of treatment options to address the source of your pain and restore your ability to work, play, and relax in comfort.

    Disruption of Daily Activities

    It is normal to require a few days of rest following an injury. However, pain that continues to disrupt your everyday activities for more than four weeks should be brought to the attention of a professional. If you are having difficulty performing the normal tasks required for personal care or work because of pain, it’s time to seek a diagnosis and treatment for your condition. Pain that keeps you from getting a healthy night’s sleep, makes it impossible to sit or stand for long periods of time, or keeps you from concentrating should also prompt you to seek professional pain management.

    Feelings of Depression         

    Numerous studies have shown that pain and depression are closely linked. Consistent pain often leads to feelings of depression because the patient cannot perform daily tasks comfortably or at all. Pain may also prevent you from taking part in sports or hobbies or enjoying time with friends and loved ones. If you have been experiencing feelings of anxiety, sadness, or depression that leave you with no energy to take part in the activities you love, it’s important to seek professional pain management to address your condition and restore your ability to enjoy each day of your life.

    Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky of Suburban Orthopaedics specializes in pain management in the Bartlett area. If you are experiencing pain, don’t wait—call us today at (888) 876-0117 to learn how we can help you live a pain-free life!

    Identifying Compression Fractures in the Spine

    Last updated 5 months ago

    The spinal column is made up, in part, of bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae offer protection for the spinal cord and support for the weight of the body. Like other bones of the body, the vertebrae are susceptible to deterioration from disease or injury. Older women in particular are vulnerable to osteoporosis, which can cause the vertebrae to become brittle. When weakened vertebrae break down, they can suffer compression fractures. Since compression fractures often cause pain similar to arthritis or other spinal conditions, sufferers may not know the true source of their discomfort. Sometimes, the patient experiences no pain at all. Other symptoms, like shortened height or a hunched back, can be signs of compression fractures.

    A pain management expert can identify compression fractures with several diagnostic tools. An MRI exam can reveal the presence of damaged discs caused by compression fractures. A digital X-ray can also reveal minute fractures in the vertebrae.

    Suburban Orthopaedics is happy to provide the treatment you require for compression fractures.
