Back pain is a common problem. The term back pain generally refers to lower back pain, which may be localised back pain, pain that radiates to the leg, or pain due to poor back posture. Should you have back pain that is constant, radiates to the limbs or wakes you up at night, visit Orton for an assessment of its cause. We will help you find quick and effective relief for your pain.
The knee is highly susceptible to injuries because of its extensive mobility, the high forces to which it is subjected, and the length of the leg bones. Knee ligament and meniscus injuries are common exercise-related problems. Orton is the Finnish expert in musculoskeletal disorders. We are here to help you. The first arthroscopic surgery in Finland was performed at Orton in 1976.
Orton has Finland’s most versatile private pain management clinic, specialising in the treatment of patients with pain. At the pain management clinic, we work out the causes of your pain together with you and identify suitable treatment and rehabilitation methods as well as ways to cope with chronic pain.
