Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine concerned with the correction or prevention of deformities, disorders, or injuries of the skeleton and associated structures (tendons and ligaments). General Orthopaedics focuses on preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries to and diseases of the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that form the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability, flexibility and movement to the body.

 

The Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine performs orthopaedic medicine and is equally committed to treating musculoskeletal issues that do not relate directly to spinal health.
The musculoskeletal system includes:
bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves.

The most common disorders and diseases treated in Orthopaedics are (but are certainly not limited to) fractures, dislocations and arthritis. There is a myriad of illnesses and injuries that can cause damage the musculoskeletal system, including bone fractures, sprains and strains, ligament and tendon tears, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee and shoulder problems, osteoporosis, and sports-related trauma. Orthopaedic conditions can and do impact patients of all ages.

We provide timely consultation, perform a physical diagnosis, order digital imaging and administer injections as necessary in order to treat issues. Treatment for these disorders can be nonsurgical, involve rehabilitation, or call for surgical procedures. We provide the highest level of care to patients of all ages.

We strive to provide our patients with a clear explanation of their musculoskeletal problems and the available treatment options. We readily share information and encourage our patients to ask questions and feel confident about the decisions made concerning their health and treatment.
