What Does an Orthopedic Doctor Treat?

Orthopedic Doctor Jeffersonville INAn orthopedic doctor is a physician who has received additional training in orthopedics, or the branch of medicine that focuses on injuries and disorders that affect the body’s musculoskeletal system. This system encompasses the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and other connective tissues. It may be a good idea to consult with an orthopedic doctor if you are experiencing neck or back pain, muscle soreness, joint pain or general discomfort that does not improve with self-care measures like stretching and over-the-counter medication.

In Jeffersonville, Indiana, many adolescents and adults turn to Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic when symptoms strike. Our independently owned practice has been serving local families since 1974. Led by board-certified orthopedic doctors, Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic can be your first choice for comprehensive musculoskeletal care.

Here are some of the orthopedic issues our specialists commonly treat:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Labral tears
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Cartilage tears
  • Bone fractures
  • Sprains and strains

At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, we take a conservative approach to treatment that focuses on addressing symptoms with conservative methods. However, in the event that surgery is clinically appropriate, our surgeons utilize the latest advances in muscle-sparing techniques and arthroscopic procedures to reduce post-surgical discomfort and recovery time.

To speak with a knowledgeable and friendly orthopedic doctor, contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic today. Our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr Goodin has replaced both of my knees this year with excellent results. He and Carly listen to my concerns, act promptly and work hard to make this journey the best it can be. Carly and Dr Goodin both have GREAT bedside manner and I feel I am in expert care with them.

Dr. Richardson is the best! He did shoulder decompression surgery for me many moons ago and has continued to treat me for other shoulder, arm, and back issues since. I would recommend him to anyone!
