At OrthoCarolina, our physiatrists treat patients of all ages for conditions ranging from the developmental disabilities of childhood to the acute injuries of adulthood and finally to the chronic diseases associated with aging. Our physiatrists offer a full continuum of care and design a comprehensive program around your lifestyle, trying to ensure you are as self-sufficient as possible while keeping you active and healthy. Oftentimes we will involve other medical providers in the plan for various treatments such as physical therapy or neurology.

The physiatrists at OrthoCarolina are sub-specialized and often treat spinal problems with medications or physical therapy. While these providers are non-operative, they are trained in various spinal injections that are often done under fluoroscopy, such as X-ray. OrthoCarolina physiatrists also perform electrodiagnostic studies, more commonly known as “nerve studies,” to help diagnose various neurologic problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
