Orthopedics is a medical specialty that deals with injuries and conditions of your bones and muscles. Orthopedic specialists can help you with anything from an ankle sprain to a fracture or ACL tear, with treatment options ranging from simple splints to orthotics, physical therapy, and surgery.
The body is a complex machine with a lot of moving parts and critical connections, like your tendons and joints. Everything works together to help you move and function. If any one part is injured or disabled, your entire body can suffer, with anything from pain and swelling to loss of mobility.
Our job at Northeast Orthopedics is to help you keep your body in good working order. We help patients who have a wide range of orthopedic related injuries and conditions, including (but not limited to) the following areas of your body:
- Back and Spine
- Foot and ankle
How Orthopedic Care Works
Orthopedic care helps you by giving you a path forward to recovering from an injury or medical condition with your bones and muscles.
At the beginning of our relationship with you, the NEO orthopedic surgeons and specialists will meet with you to get a full case history: what happened; what hurts; and what you’ve been through as a result of the condition. We’ll then evaluate you through a full suite of diagnostic tools and procedures. This tells us what’s wrong with your body and what needs to be done in order to fix it.
After we examine you, we’ll give you a diagnosis and then a recommended course of treatment. This treatment could be anything from a splint or orthotic device to physical therapy or surgery – or could be just a bit of rest from physical activity for a certain period of time.
Choosing an Orthopedic Surgeon
No matter what the treatment may be, our orthopedic surgeons and staff will treat you with care and respect, as if you were a part of our own families. That’s why our patients constantly give us high marks: our dedication to creating a relationship with our patients is something they deeply appreciate.
