Living with orthopedic pain can severely impact day-to-day life. Our goal is to enhance our patients' health and well-being and help them enjoy a healthy & pain-free life after leaving our orthopedic center.
Our specialists perform an analysis to evaluate your pain levels and range of motion. We then determine whether you require an MRI to help diagnose you and give you a clearer picture of treatment options for your orthopedic symptoms.
Our methodology for helping relieve your orthopedic condition(s) consists of individualized physical therapy for orthopedics, anti-inflammatory treatments, injections, and having surgical intervention as a last resort.
Your health and well-being are our priority. Examples of the post-treatment care you can expect to receive are testing your range of motion followed by facilitating your in-home or in-office therapy. Certain cases may need additional treatments via injections to expedite the recovery process and are proven to significantly reduce pain by as much as 85% within a month.
