••• | MEDICAL CARE

  • Non-surgical management of acute and chronic orthopedic injuries and pathologies
  • Urgent care for minor fractures, cuts and lacerations, and soft tissue injuries
  • Joint injections/Trigger Point Injections
    • Therapeutic injections are non-surgical procedures that can provide pain relief to improve range of motion and enhance ability to participate in physical therapy exercises when physical therapy is recommended
    • Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication that can be injected to reduce inflammation and pain.
      • Hyaluronic acid (HA) injections are often recommended for treating knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. HA is used to lubricate and cushion the joint while also encouraging the body’s mechanisms for self-repair.
  • Sports Physicals
    • We know your athlete is excited to begin their upcoming sport or activity, and we offer sports physicals required for athletic participation in Indiana. The intention of the sport physical, also called pre-participation exams, is to determine whether a child (or adult) is physically able to participate in a sport safely. It is important to note that while a sports physical does typically cover much of what is reviewed during an regular annual physical or exam, the sports physical does not otherwise replace the recommended regular annual checkup normally performed by the pediatrician or family physician for the ongoing monitoring of health.

••• | ONSITE X-RAY

 FACILITY

  • The benefits of advanced X-ray technology in recent years are appreciated by physicians and patients alike. For the physician, direct digital X-ray (DR) allows faster acquisition and clearer images compared to previous technologies of plain film and computed radiography (CR). This improves diagnostic capabilities and enables faster communication with patients regarding results and findings. 
  • For our patients, digital X-rays provide convenient access to all images and easy transport of those images on CD for sharing with your primary physician or other specialist if needed.

••• | LASER THERAPY

  • Our Class IV high level laser is a safe and effective treatment for soft tissue injuries such as tendinitis, rotator cuff syndrome, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sprains/strains.
  • Laser Therapy is the application of high-intensity red and near-infrared light radiation over injuries or lesions to stimulate healing and relieve pain. Laser differs from other light therapies such as LEDs in that it consists of light emission that radiates in one color (monochromatic) and with waves synchronized in one phase (coherent).
    • These properties make laser therapy unique and so effective for certain conditions compared to other therapies like electrical stimulation or ultrasound.

••• | DECOMPRESSSION

 THERAPY

  • Spinal decompression is an effective treatment for neck and low back pain related to conditions such as disc degeneration, bulging discs, pinched nerves in the neck or low back, arthritis, and certain types of spinal stenosis.
  • Spinal decompression therapy applies specific computerized cyclical distraction forces to the targeted area of the spine, reducing pressure on the injured structures to promote healing and long-term pain relief.

••• | LIFESTYLE ADVICE

  • Most of our patients initially come to our clinic to address a specific symptom, such as back pain, neck pain, or headaches. However, we often find that once the initial complaint is progressing toward resolution, many patients start to think about making long-term changes in their lifestyle to prevent future injuries and get on the road to better overall health and fitness.
  • The goal of including clinical lifestyle advice is to help each patient achieve a life that is full of the activities they enjoy the most. We recognize that every one of our patients is a whole person with goals that are unique to them. For this reason, we strive to offer personalized expertise to help our patients take a total health and wellness approach to their active lifestyle choices.
