Professional Statement

  • Dr. Alicia R. Carter's practice is devoted to the non-operative management of various orthopedic conditions, including neck and back pain, sports injuries, performing arts injuries and osteoarthritis. After a comprehensive evaluation, patients will receive a treatment plan consisting of activity modification, therapeutic exercise, medications and/or injection procedures. Alternative/Complimentary treatments are sometimes recommended when appropriate. Dr. Carter strongly believes that prevention is the best treatment and therefore, a significant part of the treatment plan will also focus on injury prevention.
  • The office visit experience is unique in offering personalized concierge-type services. Wait time for consultations and procedures is minimal and can often be performed on the same, or next, day in a comfortable, quiet, professional office atmosphere. Appointments are scheduled to allow Dr. Carter ample time to fully understand the symptoms her patients are experiencing. The office is equipped with diagnostic ultrasound, fluoroscopy (video x-ray) and electrodiagnostic equipment for same-day diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Carter is always available for her patients via phone, email or pager.
  • Her clientele include college and professional athletes, Broadway performers, professional dancers, musicians and weekend warriors. Many physicians and other health professionals seek her care for their own orthopedic conditions.
