Restoring Patients to an Active, Pain-Free Lifestyle
The orthopaedic department at Health City Cayman Islands diagnoses and treats a wide range of musculoskeletal problems affecting the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle, and has expanded to include physiotherapy and sports medicine services. We offer inpatient and outpatient physiotherapy services for individuals (adolescent to geriatric) recovering from orthopaedic and sports-related injuries. Our team of clinicians utilises evidence-based techniques and cutting-edge medical devices to reduce pain, restore normal function and movement, and promote optimum patient outcomes. Our physiotherapists also provide preoperative education classes and postoperative rehabilitation for patients undergoing total joint replacement and other orthopaedic surgery.
We treat a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Knee injuries
- Occupational-related injuries
- Shoulder pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Stiff joints
- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
A Range of Treatment Options
Orthopaedic injuries are the most common type of injury incurred in sports – from sprains and strains – to serious injuries that require surgical intervention. Acute injuries can occur while you are playing a sport, for example, sustaining a sprained ankle, fracturing an arm, or tearing a knee ligament. Chronic injuries, however, are caused by repeated overuse of muscle groups or joints, poor technique, or anatomical weaknesses in specific areas of the body.
At Health City Cayman Islands, we develop individualized treatment plans based on each patient’s medical history, physical condition, and level of performance. Our team develops strategies that help prevent surgery, as well as post-surgical rehabilitation approaches that enable proper healing, including strengthening to help prevent future injuries.
When surgery is required, both athletes and non-athletes alike will be given a postsurgical rehabilitation treatment plan to follow so that they may return to normal activities and levels of performance. Whether you are vacationing in the Cayman Islands and become injured, or have a chronic, nagging sports injury you need treated, our sports medicine team can work with you to treat these issues and get you back in the game.
