Find out if it’s time to turn to an orthopaedic surgeon in Manassas and Haymarket, VA, to treat your pain.

We know how much joint and muscle pain can affect your lifestyle, from enjoying your morning runs to being able to play with your orthopaedic surgeonchildren. If you are dealing with joint pain and stiffness you may find that everyday tasks are severely impacted. This is where our Haymarket, VA, orthopaedic specialists can help. So many people can benefit from seeing our orthopaedic surgical team to weigh their treatment options.

What is an orthopaedic surgeon?

Our goal as your doctor is to be able to prevent, diagnose and treat a variety of musculoskeletal injuries, conditions and disorders. Problems that affect the function of the joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bones can be addressed by one of our orthopaedic surgeons in Haymarket, VA.

What issues can an orthopaedic surgeon address?

We work with patients of all ages, from newborns with musculoskeletal deformities to seniors dealing with different forms of arthritis. Here are some of the conditions and problems that we can treat,

  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Sports injuries
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Back pain
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Foot and ankle problems
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Ruptured disks

One of the ways in which we can help address your symptoms is through physical therapy. During physical therapy we will go through several different types of exercises designed to alleviate pain and other symptoms while improving mobility and range of motion. These exercises will be tailored to your specific condition, the type and severity of your symptoms, and your lifestyle and activity level.

If you’ve tried a host of nonsurgical treatment options or if there is extensive damage then our orthopaedic physicians may recommend getting surgery. While our goal is to provide you with the care and treatment you need to prevent surgery, there are some cases in which surgery may be the best way to repair the damage and improve how your body functions as a whole. Of course, before undergoing surgery we will discuss in detail what you can expect before, during and after surgery, as some rehabilitation is usually required after surgery.
