Your Home for Orthopaedic Care
At Davis Spine & Orthopaedics, we focus on a wide range of orthopaedic care treatment areas. These include back and spine, arm and elbow, foot and ankle, hand and wrist, neck and shoulder, knee and leg, hip and pelvis, and more. Call today!
Back and Spine
Your spine is made up of 24 bones, called vertebrae. These bones stack on top of each other and connect to create a tunnel that protects your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is responsible for getting messages from your brain to the rest of your body and, obviously, is of critical importance. Spinal injuries are never to be taken lightly.
Your spine protects your spinal cord and supports your head, chest, and the rest of your body. It is made up of three segments that form three natural curves and allows you to bend and twist. Intervertebral disks separate your vertebrae like cushions to absorb any shock and keep the vertebrae from crashing into each other.
Neck & Shoulder
The shoulder areas are definitely susceptible to everyday injuries. Consistently carrying heavy purses, reaching or working above your head, sometimes even sleeping wrong — these can all cause problems. And, adding sports injuries caused by repetitive or excessive overhead motion like throwing, swimming, weightlifting or tennis, and it's no wonder that between seven and eight million people see their doctors each year for shoulder problems.
Our specialists can diagnose and correct shoulder problems accurately and quickly. Sometimes therapy is all you need, but sometimes orthopaedic surgery is necessary. Our providers will complete a thorough examination and possibly order x-rays, CAT scans, MRIs, and other tests to determine the scope of the injury and the best course of action to take.
Arm and Elbow
Common injuries to the arm and elbow can include fractures, sprains, tendon tears and dislocation.
We specialize in arm and elbow problems including sprains, fractures and other injuries as well as diseases and syndromes such as elbow bursitis, osteoarthritis, and tennis elbow. The elbow is a complicated joint. It is both a ball and socket joint and a hinge joint allowing two separate motions-bending and rotating.
Injuries to and dislocations of the elbow can affect either or both of these unique motions. At Davis Spine and Orthopaedics, our providers will complete a thorough evaluation and sometimes order x-ray, MRI or CT scans to diagnose your condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Foot and Ankle
Your feet and ankles are comprised of many bones and ligaments which means that there are many different injuries you can sustain in those areas.
For instance, you can fracture an ankle bone, a heel bone or even a toe bone. Because the ankle can be easily twisted or turned, sprained and broken ankles are very common. It’s hard to tell if you have a sprain or a break because the symptoms are very similar.
If you have an acute injury or chronic pain, come see one of our providers. We will perform a thorough evaluation and develop an appropriate treatment plan specific to your situation.
Hand and Wrist
The hand is made up of 27 bones. Your wrist has eight bones. Your palm has five (the metacarpals) and the fingers are made up of 14 bones called phalanges.
Fractures of the hand can happen in hand or finger bones. Breaks are usually the result of a fall in which you land on the hand, direct contact (usually during sports), or getting the hand crushed (in a door, window or machinery). Most hand fractures can be repaired without surgery. An orthopedist can realign the bones and a splint or cast can hold them in place. Some hand fractures will require surgery.
Fractures that break through the skin or injuries from crushing accidents will require orthopedic surgery and may require an orthopedic surgeon to use wires, screws or plates to hold the broken bones in place. If the bone changes position while healing, you may permanently lose some function. Delay of treatment could result in ongoing joint pain or permanent stiffness in a finger or joint. If you experience any of the following symptoms, schedule to be seen right away.
Hip and Pelvis
The hip is a ball and socket joint that allows the leg to flex and rotate at the pelvis.
A hip fracture is actually a break in the top quarter of the thigh bone (femur). An injury to the hip socket itself is not considered a “hip fracture”. Hip fractures are usually a result of a direct blow to the side of the hip commonly associated with a fall. If the bone is weakened by osteoporosis, cancer or stress injuries, the bone will break more easily. Symptoms include pain in the upper thigh and groin and severe joint pain when the hip is rotated or flexed.
Our providers determine if there is a break by ordering an x-ray of the area. Because these breaks are common in older adults who may not be healthy enough to undergo anesthesia, physicians may recommend bed rest instead of surgery. Otherwise, surgery will repair the damage. Often, screws and plates are necessary to hold the broken bones in place. In some cases, it may be necessary to replace the ball at the head of the femur or the entire ball and socket (acetabulum) may need to be replaced (total hip replacement).
Knee and Leg
The knee joint is made up of the lower end of the femur (thigh bone), the upper end of the tibia ( shin bone) and the patella (knee cap). Large ligaments attach to the bones and help control motion.
The meniscus is a wedge of cartilage located between the thigh and shin bones which acts as a cushion and a shock absorber.
The knee is the largest joint in the body and also one of the easiest to injure. It’s no wonder that joint pain problems are the most common reason to visit an orthopedic provider. The most common knee injuries involve pulled ligaments. There are four major ligaments found in the knee. They are the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), the MCL (medial collateral ligament) and occasionally, the PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) and the LCL (Lateral Collateral Ligament).

"Dr. Davis and his team at Davis Spine gave me back what I lost in a car accident, the ability to get around without pain. I have recommended Dr. Davis and his spine team to several other people and everyone has been pleased with their results. The Davis Spine team is exactly that, a team. They listen and understand your fears and doubts and do their best to put you at ease. I would highly recommend the Davis Spine team for all your spine and orthopaedic needs."
"I was relieved on my first visit to keep Dr. Charles Davis as my surgeon. His bedside manner was professional and caring. I would and I have recommended Dr. Davis to other potential patients. His office personnel are personable and friendly. They make it their effort to answer any questions and to get to know each and every patient and their personal needs. Dr. Davis will use his professional experience and knowledge to make sure all professional needs are met medically."
"He did surgery on other family members. He was very kind and professional. Made me feel better and stopped some pain. I can walk now and I could not before. He is one of the best surgeons I had in the last 15 years. He knows what he is doing and he will tell you what he is going to do."
"All of the staff have shown professionalism and knowledge beyond any I would have expected. Davis Spine & Orthopaedics has answered every question and gone above and beyond to ensure I was an active part of my treatment. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, courteous and fantastic experience to help in all of your spine and orthopaedic needs, there is only one choice, Davis Spine & Orthopaedics."
"The skill Dr. Davis has perfected is unmatched. Here I am 2 years after my surgery and I am pain free. I am able to take 4 workout classes a week, walk and swim. Dr. Charles W. Davis is a successful doctor that gave me a new and improved spine to last me the rest of my life. Davis Spine & Orthopaedics is outstanding compared to other specialists offices is I saw, (once I was aware of my having severe scoliosis), who not once told me this could be fixed or that I would ever be free of my terrible pain. I continue to live a wonderful life, able to enjoy volunteering to assist others, fish in my boat pain free for the first time in my life, amongst other activities, and live my life to the fullest. Words, truly words cannot express my admiration for Dr. Davis’ skill and his dedicated staff. I will never be able to repay Dr. Davis for all he has done for me."
"It is only two months since my surgery and I am already finding significant relief. While I am not pain free, I am certainly in a much better place and hope to have even more positive results. Throughout this process whenever I had a question I would call the office and the front office staff was pleasant and answered questions, if they couldn't they arranged to call me back, and did so in a timely manner. As I said at the outset I would forever be indebted to Dr. House for this referral and I will always be indebted to Dr. Davis and his staff for their compassion, concern, competency, and care for all aspects of me as a patient."
"Davis has continuously monitored the progress of my healing through x-rays and good medical advice on how to take care of and strengthen my back muscles. If I ever require another orthopaedic surgery, Dr. Davis will be the only doctor that I will turn to. His surgical assistant and office help are the best. They are polite, considerate and knowledgeable about your needs and concerns. Whenever I speak to someone about my surgery with Dr. Davis I always preface it with, “Dr. Davis was not the only orthopaedic surgeon that I saw, but he's the only one who would listen to me about my concerns. Other surgeons had me on pills for several years with no comforting effect."
