Should I See an Orthopaedist?

Orthopedists are doctors who specialize in the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and connective tissues). When you experience joint pain, swelling, stiffness, or have mobility challenges, it’s important to be seen by a medical professional with the expertise to treat your orthopaedic condition and help provide significant pain relief.

Our orthopaedic team offers nonoperative/conservative treatment, including physical therapy, as well as more involved and aggressive therapies such as minimally invasive surgeries like total joint replacement or tendon repair. We also treat some spinal conditions, such as herniated discs, sciatica, scoliosis, and stenosis. It’s important to remember, though, that even if you are referred to an orthopaedic surgeon, it does not necessarily mean you will require surgery to heal.

The Better Bones Clinic

Our Better Bones Clinic was designed for adults 65+ years of age or those who have had a fracture after age 50. We also cater to adults concerned about their risk of osteoporosis. The clinic involves reviewing your medical history, identifying risks, and providing medication education. Our team will review your bone density and lab results and then discuss our finding with you before we relay the treatment plan and help set up consultations with a physical therapist and/or nutritionist as needed

You shouldn’t just feel you have to “live with” pain that affects your bones or joints. Neglecting to get your condition treated will only make your pain last longer and potentially devolve into more severe problems. For example, athletes typically require the help of orthopaedic doctors providers to get back to their sport and address an injury before it can progress to a chronic condition.
