Excellent care is all about options, and sometimes surgery is not the best or only treatment option for an orthopaedic condition. Alpine Orthopaedic Specialists provides a full spectrum of orthopaedic care in Utah by complementing our roster of expert surgeons with two physiatrists, Dr. Michael L. Clegg and Dr. Jacob B Pugsley.
Physiatrists are physicians who specialize in non-surgical physical medicine and rehabilitation. These nerve, muscle and bone experts diagnose and treat pain, illnesses, and injuries that affect the proper performance of the body. They work with patients to design specialized treatment plans that lead to positive results and improved quality of life.
Our physiatrists use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to diagnose conditions that cause pain, weakness and numbness:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan
Nerve Conduction Studies
Computed Tomography (CT scan)
The following are just a few of the non-surgical treatments employed by our physiatrists:
Trigger Point Steroid Injections
