Does Pain or Limitation of Movement Affect the Quality of Your Life?
An orthopedic physician is the right doctor for you to help reduce your
pain and get you back into action as quickly as possible. Orthopedic
physicians at Main Line Health treat simple to complex sports and
accident-related injuries as well as the painful effects of many
conditions that limit your mobility and cause pain.
Most of us move our bodies without a second thought—we walk, run, lift,
bend and play without ever thinking about it—until an injury or illness
limits us in some way. The seemingly “effortless” movement of our bodies
actually relies on a complex set of coordinated systems with your
musculoskeletal system—your body’s bones, muscles, joints, ligaments,
cartilage, tendons and connective tissue—giving your body its form and
stability, as well as movement.
Orthopedic physicians at Main Line Health treat arthritis pain, sprains
and strains, cartilage, tendon and ligament injuries, broken bones and
dislocations and joints that need to be repaired or replaced. We are
experts in treating sports and trauma-related injuries that happen after
a blow or force such as being tackled in football or wiping out on your
skateboard, as well as overuse injuries such as stress fractures and
