Treatment for Aches & Pain

Losing the ability to do activities you once enjoyed without pain is a difficult experience. Joint pain and muscle aches are common problems for people as they get older, but there are ways to manage and reduce discomfort. When joint and muscle pains make daily life hard, we aim to create relief by expert diagnosis, treatment plans, and the therapy you need to heal and return to an active life as soon as possible.

Experts in Orthopedics

An Orthopedist is a medical professional who specializes in the treatment of conditions that relate to the spine, bones, joints, and muscles. With our team of orthopedists, we create treatment plans to match your personal goals for recovery.

The orthopedic team provides treatment for:

  • Joint pain or stiffness
  • Difficulty walking or climbing stairs
  • Difficulty using your hand or arm to reach for or carry objects
  • Discomfort in daily activities
  • Muscle damage, including pulls or tears to ligaments and tendons
  • Injuries like fractures & dislocations

We provide an expert diagnosis, treatment plans, and therapy options that you may need to heal. For any musculoskeletal problem, we feature a full team of movement specialists in fields of study such as:


When you seek help or are diagnosed with early stages of joint and muscle pain conditions, physical therapy may be all you need to keep the pain under control and regain better mobility. The sooner you see a provider, the more quickly you can begin your recovery and create a plan to prevent more severe problems—while restoring as much of your body’s function as possible. Chronic conditions, such as arthritis, are not curable. You can slow the progress of the disease by taking better care of your joints and muscles. That’s a key goal and benefit of physical and occupational therapy.


Depending on your condition, physical therapy and other treatments may not always help you reduce your pain and get you back to enjoying the things you love. If this ends up being the case, orthopedic surgery may be needed to help turn things around. If you need surgery, you will want a trusted, caring, and dedicated team to help guide you through the process. At St. Croix Health, our orthopedic surgeons and care team work closely with you to make sure we understand your needs, concerns, and treatment goals. We try as hard as possible to guide you to nonsurgical options and recommend surgery only when it’s the best way to treat your condition.
