When joint, muscle, neck, or back pain interfere in your daily life, it’s time to see an orthopaedic specialist. Many strains, sprains, pulls, and fractures can be treated without surgery. Physical and occupational therapy; injections; and braces, boots, and casts can provide pain relief and restore range of motion. Our goal is to help you return to the activities you love with minimal downtime.
Duke orthopaedic specialists work with you to identify the cause of your pain and understand the impact on your daily life. We keep your goals in mind and recommend treatment options that will help you find relief. We begin with conservative methods for treating your pain and injuries and recommend surgery only if these options fail to improve your condition.
