What Are the Advantages of Seeing an Orthopedic Doctor in Macclenny?

Orthopedic care provides diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of injuries or disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. According to the United States Bone and Joint Initiative, Musculoskeletal diseases like trauma, back pain, and arthritis affect nearly half of people 18 and older and three-quarters of people 65 and older.

While your primary care doctor can identify and treat illnesses and injury, certain conditions require further examinations by an orthopedic doctor to ensure a reliable diagnosis.

How orthopedic care helps

Orthopedic doctors work alongside physical therapists, rehabilitation, and pain management specialists to treat broken bones, injuries, improve body function, and reduce pain. 

At Dopson Family Medical Center, our staff of highly trained professionals are experts in recognizing and treating orthopedic disorders. We specialize in conditions for the hand, knee, spine, shoulder, and pinched nerves.
