Immobilization

Not all orthopedic injuries require surgery, but in most cases it is necessary to immobilize them to allow the body to heal, in those cases orthotic devices are used, either prefabricated (eg boots, wristbands, collars) or adapted to the injury (eg gypsum / fiberglass splints).

Infiltration

It consists of the application, inside any joint, of steroidal medication (cortisone) or hyaluronic acid (viscosupplementation) with the aim of reducing joint pain, as long as there is no contraindication or high risk for its use.
