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. The orthopedic specialists at AdventHealth Medical Group Orthopedics & Sports Medicine can pinpoint the cause of your pain or restricted movements and guide you on the path to recovery. Their team is ready to offer relief while being committed to your whole-person health and safety.

From nonsurgical techniques like physical therapy to minimally invasive procedures all the way to joint replacements, AdventHealth Medical Group Orthopedics & Sports Medicine 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 AdventHealth Medical Group Orthopedics & Sports Medicine treats include:

♦ Bicep tendonitis, frozen shoulder and shoulder separation

♦ Dislocated hips, bursitis and tears in the tissues surrounding your hips, 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

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 the orthopedic experts at AdventHealth Medical Group Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.

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

♦ Bone scans and bone density scans

♦ CT scans

♦ MRIs

♦ Ultrasounds

♦ X-Rays

From there, the 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.
