What is Musculoskeletal Medicine?
Musculoskeletal medicine involves the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and other connective tissue). Musculoskeletal disorders may occur as the result of injury or of a gradual onset condition such as osteoarthritis and will typically cause chronic (long term) or acute disability and pain.
Management of musculoskeletal disorders includes a wide range of treatments such as: patient education, pain management strategies, manipulative techniques, exercise and rehabilitation programmes, acupuncture, specialised injection techniques and medication.
Dr Matti is passionate about the principle of Regenerative Musculoskeletal Medicine. This evolving field utilises cellular therapies called orthobiologics combined with precise delivery into musculoskeletal tissue under the guidance of ultrasound or x-ray. He is a member of Interventional Orthopaedics Foundation, a leading organisation in this field. He is an active participant in the world-leading conferences in that field. He lectured in many international meetings about the principle and use of platelets rich plasma PRP as a cellular therapy for musculoskeletal conditions. Zaid is an advocate for promoting ethical research, marketing, and clinical application of orthobiologics. He is an active member of the Orthobiologics Ethics Consortium.
Dr Matti's other clinical interests include interventions in pain management, point of care ultrasound, and acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems in adults, particularly spinal, hip, knee and shoulder pain.
