The musculoskeletal system includes the body’s bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, and blood vessels. Along with other connective tissue, it binds tissues and organs together. Its primary functions include enabling motion, supporting the body, and protecting vital organs.
Musculoskeletal disorders include injuries and diseases that affect the body’s movement and cause long-term debilitating pain.
Main Line Spine treats patients with musculoskeletal disorders with the least invasive and most effective therapies possible. Our board-certified Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation doctors and practitioners consider a diverse array of options to treat these conditions without surgery.
If there is a conservative treatment option that can help you with your musculoskeletal issues, Main Line Spine will find it.
Why Main Line Spine for Musculoskeletal Problems?
Main Line Spine, at its core, is a dedicated Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation practice. What that means to our patients is that our doctors are trained in their specialty to prioritize the use non- and minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, to reduce pain and speed recovery.
Our approach vastly expands the options you have to deal with your musculoskeletal problems. Such as alternatives to avoid or postpone joint replacement or spine surgery, options to regain functionality, and opportunities to more quickly restore the quality of your life.
Many of our doctors are engaged in clinical trials and other clinical research in many areas of musculoskeletal disease, offering our patients the most current options for diagnosis and treatment.
If we determine that other medical specialists or a surgeon are appropriate for your course of treatment, we’ll pull that effort together and manage it. However, we typically develop individualized solutions that only require office visits or minimally invasive procedures at our surgery center.
