Adena’s Approach to Orthopaedic Care

Call Adena Orthopedic and Spine Institute today at 740-779-4598.

Whether your pain is from a sprain, strain, fracture or the wear and tear of arthritis, you’ve come to the right place. Musculoskeletal disorders are the second most common reason people visit the doctor.

The good news is that many injuries can be treated without surgery, and for the team of orthopaedic specialists at Adena Health System, that’s the goal. Our orthopaedic team follows a conservative approach to care — beginning with the least invasive treatment available -- in the hopes that surgery isn’t necessary.

Unless you have a traumatic injury that requires emergency care, an Adena sports medicine physician will assess your condition. Some injuries simply require rest and over-the-counter pain medications. Others might need physical therapy or injections for the pain. Surgery is considered only if medications, physical therapy and other treatments are unsuccessful.

  • Arthritis
  • Bone fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Ligament and tendon injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Disc herniation
