For relief from pain and limited mobility—see an orthopaedic doctor

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 the musculoskeletal system. The body’s bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, cartilage, tendons and connective tissue give the body its form and stability, as well as movement.

So whether you’re coping with a simple sports- or accident-related injury, a complex injury due to trauma, or you’re dealing with the painful effects of a condition that limits your mobility and causes pain, our orthopaedic doctors at Main Line Health see patients at locations throughout the western suburbs of Philadelphia. You’ll also find that some of our doctors are among the top orthopaedic surgeons in Philadelphia.
