Musculoskeletal injuries that affect muscles, joints, bones, cartilage, and connective tissues ca range in severity and source. Some are related to automotive collisions, athletic injuries, or an accident around the home.

Here at Foundation Chiropractic, we have years of experience helping individuals recover and rehabilitate from a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries.

The first step in the process involves Dr. Jeff Brown or Dr. Scott Harris performing an orthopedic exam. This is designed to accurately assess the nature and severity of the issues as well as any other related factors to start the process of developing an effective treatment plan.

It is designed to assess specific problems associated with limited your range of motion in joints as well as factors that contribute to your pain and discomfort. This might also include testing your shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle to help diagnose a functional problem.

We might also need to review your medical history, as well as performing physical tests for flexibility, and reflexes. We might also require imaging tests, such as X-rays to determine issues related to bones, joints, to gain further insights and understand the relationship between ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues.

Our specialists will also check the affected area to check for swelling lumps, bulges, mottled or bruised skin, or other visible symptoms.

Once the orthopedic exam has been completed, Dr. Brown or Dr. Harris will help you understand your possible treatment options.

If you have recently suffered a musculoskeletal injury and you need help with recovery or rehabilitation, you should call 801-226-2606 to schedule an orthopedic exam at Foundation Chiropractic.
