Following a surgical procedure or sports injury, physical therapy is often the next, logical step in completing the healing process.

No matter the injury, our physical therapists work with each patient to tailor a customized treatment program based on their specific needs.
Orthopedists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with conditions of the musculoskeletal system. This complex system encompasses the bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons and skin. We offer a broad range of orthopedic services, including total joint replacements, arthroscopic surgery, fracture management, and viscous injections. While the surgical solutions we offer are an effective treatment for orthopedic conditions, our orthopedists also offer a wide variety of non-surgical methods to suit the lifestyles of their patients. Orthopedists often work together with other types of physicians to create unique treatment plans for each of their patients. The team at Pontchartrain Orthopedics & Sports Medicine offers a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating your orthopedic needs
Many athletes, at some point in their athletic careers, sustain injuries as a result of their active lifestyles. A sports medicine physician specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sports- and exercise-related injuries. They are specially suited to provide treatment for athletes and active individuals.
A majority of injuries sustained during exercise do not require surgery, and there are many non-invasive treatment options available to patients. Our team of sports medicine physicians offer several treatments for injuries, such as arthroscopic surgery and bone fracture management. The physicians at Pontchartrain Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are prepared to treat any injury and get patients back to the activities they enjoy.
Every patient has their own definition of pain. Because pain is subjective, it can be difficult to diagnose the exact cause of a patient’s discomfort. Pain can be dull or sharp, throbbing or stabbing, and different people will handle degrees of pain in different ways. There are two general types of pain, “acute” pain that is typically resolved in a few months, and “chronic” pain, which is persistent and harder to treat. Pain management involves the diagnosis and treatment of pain, and can involve interventional procedures with the help of medication and physical therapy. The pain management physicians at Pontchartrain Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are ready to work one-on-one with you to evaluate the source of your pain condition and determine a treatment plan that is right for you.
Occupational & Physical therapy
Here at Pontchartrain Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we have a dedicated team of both physical and occupational therapists. Physical and occupational therapy are both methods of improving the mobility of patients through rehabilitation. While physical therapists mainly treat patients recovering from injuries, occupational therapists tend to specialize in helping patients perform day-to-day tasks, whether they need help because of an injury or because of a cognitive or developmental disorder.
Through the examination of each patient and their individual needs, a physical or occupational therapist can customize a treatment plan to promote movement and restore muscular function. Our team of physical and occupational therapists is ready to help you on your road to recovery.
