Dr. Kindred's Care Philosophy
I firmly believe that exercise is the best medicine and as such, my first priority is to get my patients active in whatever they enjoy doing. I try to take time to understand the goals of everyone I treat so we can be on the same page through the process.Our first objective is to decide what is causing the pain. This is accomplished using a physical exam, X-rays and sometimes advanced imaging like an MRI scan. Sometimes this is very easy and obvious and other times can be quite difficult. For many of my patients I will use musculoskeletal ultrasound as part of the the examination. This can be very helpful to visualize joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and even nerves and can often aid in the diagnosis. Once we identify the pain generator we can decide what is the best way to treat the problem. This may include immobilization in a boot or cast, physical therapy, an injection, etc. For certain chronic problems I perform the latest minimally invasive like PRP and the Tenex TX1 procedure. This can be a great option for tennis/golfer's elbow, patellar/achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis that continues to be painful even after other treatments. Many of my injections and procedure are done using ultrasound imaging for pinpoint accuracy in treating the problem area.
