At California Orthopedics & Spine, our on-site physiatrist, Dr. Holly Kelly, creates comprehensive treatment plans to address the root of the patient’s pain as well as any related conditions. Our doctors are experts at planning and executing rehabilitation techniques to help patients with short-term injuries or long-term medical conditions.
When patients have spinal injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, joint problems, neurological conditions, or other physical or cognitive issues, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist can help them minimize pain and maximize their functional abilities. Usually, physiatrists, who specialize in these cases, rely on effective nonsurgical treatment options, recommending surgical care only when it is absolutely necessary.
