Your bones provide a solid structure. Your muscles power you through your days. And then there are the connections — ligaments and joints — that offer you the flexibility and agility you need to live life to its fullest.

 

But when pain, injury or illness affect your musculoskeletal system, activities you once took for granted can turn challenging.

 

Fortunately, you don’t have to let these problems limit your life. Our orthopedic specialists can pinpoint the cause of your pain or restricted movements and guide you on the path to recovery. We’re here — ready to offer relief while committed to your whole-person health and safety.

 

From nonsurgical techniques like physical therapy, to minimally invasive procedures all the way to joint replacements, we can offer the care you need to get you moving again.

 

Common Orthopedic Conditions

Orthopedic care addresses a wide range of injuries and conditions. Some specific injuries and diseases our orthopedic specialists treat include:

 

  • Bicep tendonitis, frozen shoulder and shoulder separation
  • Dislocated hips, bursitis and tears in the tissues surrounding your hip, such as cartilage tears or labral tears
  • Foot and ankle conditions, such as fractures, sprains and Achilles tendinitis
  • Knee pain from osteoarthritis, tendinitis or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Nerve injury, arthritis or fractures that affect your hand and wrist
  • Orthopedic conditions in children, including scoliosis, leg length discrepancies and bone tumors
  • Repetitive motion injuries like bursitis or carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, as well as dislocations and fractures of the elbow joint

We know it can be hard to place your own health and well-being at the top of your to-do list. That may feel especially true right now, when many things feel different.

 

But in some cases, delaying treatment can cause more serious complications, such as nerve damage, chronic pain that’s harder to shake and limits to your functioning.

 

Finding the Cause of Your Pain

Whether you’re feeling a new ache, have a sudden injury or accident or are coping with pain you’ve quietly managed for years, don’t hesitate to reach out to our orthopedic experts.

 

First, your physician will listen to you describe your symptoms and examine you. From there, our facilities have the most advanced diagnostic tests to determine the root cause of your problem. These include:

  • Arthrocentesis
  • Blood tests
  • Bone scans and bone density scans
  • CT scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Ultrasound
  • X-rays

 

From there, your care team can put together a comprehensive treatment plan that aims to restore your mobility, relieve your pain and allow you to embrace an active, fulfilling life.

 

Healing Your Pain, Safely

Your orthopedic specialist has a full suite of options to heal you — everything from medications to the most minimally invasive surgery to other procedures. Some of the orthopedic treatments we offer include:

  • Arthroscopy
  • Casting and bandaging
  • Cortisone injections
  • Interventional pain management
  • Joint replacement implants or joint replacement surgery
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Reconstructive surgery

Many times, you’ll also have access to a team of rehab specialists to help you return to full activity. Our physical therapists, athletic trainers and more will help you regain your strength, flexibility and confidence.

 

Our Commitment to Your Health and Safety

If you have questions and concerns about seeking medical, know that nothing matters more to us than your health and safety.

 

When you come in for treatment of an orthopedic condition or injury, you’ll notice some changes we’ve made to protect you, your family and your community.
