- Lifestyle recommendations, such as rest, heat and cold therapy, activity modifications, and more
- Education about preventing future injuries
- Weight loss if you’re overweight
- Pain management services
- Physical therapy, exercises and hands-on treatments like massage to lessen discomfort, make it easier for you to move, and help you rebuild strength and flexibility
- Braces and casts to hold a body part in place while it heals
- Medications, including injections

Orthopedic Surgical Care
If you and your doctor decide surgery is the best choice, feel confident you’ll receive exceptional care before, during, and after your procedure from our skilled surgeons.
Most bone, joint, and muscle surgeries are done on an outpatient, or same-day, basis. You’ll visit the facility for care and go home afterward, and we’ll provide ongoing support so you have the smoothest recovery.
Less Invasive Options
Whenever possible, your doctor will recommend minimally invasive or arthroscopic techniques. This means your surgeon will use advanced technology, tiny tools, and small incisions to treat your condition. You’ll benefit from a quicker healing process, with less chance of infection, bleeding, and pain.
Count on your doctor to provide referrals when needed to other Acclaim Physician Group specialists and help you navigate the health care system.
