Traumatic damage and disorders of the muscular, or skeletal systems are predominantly due to:-
sudden physical contact with objects
sudden exertion (such as lifting a heavy object)
repetitive strain (repeating the same movements)
repeated force, vibration, or awkward posture
So if you're in pain, or concerned about damage to muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilages, bones, joints, discs, or nerves, you should book a consultation with Dr. Crosby as soon as possible.
Regardless of age, or background, he sees patients with the widest range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, such as damaged knee cartilage, strained rotator cuff, lower back pain, bursitis and tendonitis, as well as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
CONSULTATION & DIAGNOSIS
Your initial consultation begins with a physical examination to help identify the nature and severity of your injury, or condition. This is usually followed by the relevant diagnostic imaging tests, such as an X-Ray, or MRI scan.
Once he has made a diagnosis, Dr. Crosby will then determine the most appropriate treatment plan. And since the vast majority of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions do not require surgery, your treatment will typically consist of some form of physical therapy.
