Our Orthopedic Services
Orthopedics is a very broad field of medicine. Many orthopedic doctors
are trained in primary and surgical care, as musculoskeletal conditions
often require both. Orthopedic treatments can help you return to work
faster, get back in shape for athletic activities, and manage pain to
regain your independence.
At Kirby Medical Center, we offer treatments and surgeries for:
- Sports medicine
- Orthopedic trauma
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Spine injuries
- Joint replacement
- General injuries
Patients have access to both physical and occupational therapy to help
them recover from their condition.
Physical therapy is done under the supervision of a medical professional who creates a
customized exercise and diet plan designed to improve your quality of life.
Occupational therapy is similar, except the focus of the therapy is to return you to a level
of physical fitness needed to do your job, rather than general treatment
for day-to-day living.
