Orthopedic Specialists, at Your Service

Physicians who specialize in orthopedics become experts in the musculoskeletal system, i.e., the ways in which the bones and joints move together. An orthopedic specialist can diagnose and treat conditions affecting the bones, joints, tissues, and spine.

If you or a loved one is living with a musculoskeletal condition, chances are it is affecting daily movement. Our orthopedic services help promote ease of mobility and pain relief assistance. Read on to discover the many benefits of orthopedics, and give us a call at 810-648-6113 to inquire further about services.

When to See an Orthopedist

Since orthopedists are movement specialists, you can seek orthopedic care whenever you are experiencing pain or difficulty with movement. You can also reach out to an orthopedic specialist if you sustain a musculoskeletal injury or tissue damage. As outlined by Verywell Health, additional factors you may want to note to your physician include:

  • The time(s) of day you experience symptoms most
  • Any activities that seem to aggravate symptoms
  • The type/intensity of pain you are experiencing (i.e., dull vs. sharp pain, burning vs. shooting pain, achy vs. severe pain, etc.)

At McKenzie Health System, our focus is on fracture care, rotator cuff repair, trauma surgery, total joint replacement, knee ligament repair, arthroscopic surgery, and more. We also offer alternative musculoskeletal therapies like physical therapy and occupational therapy to complement orthopedic care and continue to promote movement and pain relief.

Do You Have Any of These Common Orthopedic Disorders?

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of orthopedics is that it covers a vast array of issues ranging throughout the entire musculoskeletal system. Some of the most common orthopedic disorders that an orthopedist may see and treat include:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures/breaks
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Bursitis
  • Ligament tears
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Soft tissue injuries
