Orthopedic Medicine

Mill Creek Family Practice offers non-surgical treatments for problems involving your body’s bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. These problems may arise due to: accident/trauma, overuse, or birth defects, or they may simply be a byproduct of growth and/or aging. However they arise, these ailments can cause pain and suffering as well as a loss of ability and mobility. The loss of mobility may result in a decline in activity level which can worsen other health conditions and lead to ongoing problems. Many patients suffer needlessly with bone, joint, and muscle pain, even though most of these problems are highly treatable.

We offer on-site X-Ray services as well as open extremity MRI, and ultrasounds to help us diagnose and treat orthopedic problems.

To receive an accurate diagnosis and compassionate treatment of any bone, joint, or muscle problem, make an appointment with your Mill Creek Family Practice physician.
