Fibromyalgia is a condition where one can experience pain in the whole body, especially in the mornings, and difficulty moving and working. It's widespread muscle pain and tenderness. The most common symptoms are that people may experience abdominal, back or neck pain, fatigue, tiredness, or malaise. There's joint pain, muscle stiffness, headaches, poor sleep, anxiety, and depression. At Starcare Hospital, our Oortho Specialists follow a multi-disciplinary pain management system to prevent further progression of the condition. Pain can come from any physical activity, an injury or after surgery. Our Ortho Specialists prescribe nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, nerve pain medication and muscle relaxants.

Arthritis is an inflammation in one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness that can worsen with age. A weak immune system or a metabolic condition may cause it. Symptoms like pain and, swelling, stiffness in joints are seen. Our Orthopedic Doctors diagnose people suffering from arthritis with MRI scans and ultrasounds to help identify Rheumatoid Arthritis in the early stages. Treatments include medicines like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, joint injections, weight reduction, exercise, and surgery. Our Orthopedist, Dr Sreejith, at Starcare Hospital, Calicut, suggests personalized treatment options resulting in efficacy.

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become weak, and many people won't have any symptoms until they have a bone fracture. Some may get this due to calcium deficiency which leads to lower back pain, hip pain and loss of height.

Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. People might have a curved posture and difficulty sitting, standing and walking. Humpbacks are a sign of Scoliosis. Our doctors recommend the treatment option with medications such as Vitamin and Calcium supplements, following a healthy diet and exercises to strengthen the bones, which aids in reducing ortho problems due to Osteoporosis, Scoliosis, and Humpbacks. Ortho surgery is recommended when medications do not result in effective recovery.

Sports injuries commonly occur during sports or exercises, primarily affecting the shoulder, ankle, and knees. It causes tennis elbow, Sciatica, sprains, dislocations and Fracture. It is mainly due to poor training methods that lead to muscle tendons and ligament weakness. Our Ortho Specialists recommend treatment starting with the diagnosis of sports injury, performed using X-ray, CT scan, and MRI scan to identify the type of injury and its treatment for the betterment of ortho health condition. People with ortho problems are instructed to do balance exercises, core stabilization and strengthening for quicker recovery. Our specialists prescribe medications such as anti-inflammatory drugs and injections to reduce swelling. Depending on the medicine's efficacy and the progression of ortho health, our doctors recommend surgeries for complete recovery. Our hospital has world-class facilities to perform Ortho Surgeries for correcting fractures.
