Muscles, Bones & Joints: Overview



Your muscles, bones and joints all work together. At Park Nicollet, so do we. Our team of experts works as one – diagnosing your symptoms – and finding real answers.


Your musculoskeletal system includes bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves. This interconnected system helps you sit, stand, walk and perform everyday activities. Each part of your musculoskeletal system plays an essential role. When one part isn’t functioning correctly, it can have a dramatic effect on other areas of your body. It’s important to find the right specialist, or team of specialists, to help.


While pain (lower back, tendonitis, myalgia and stress fractures) is a common musculoskeletal issue, our experts provide care for a wide variety of conditions throughout the body. Our integrated team includes experts in imaging and radiology, neuroscience, occupational therapy, orthopedics, physical therapy, podiatry and rheumatology. 


We receive many referrals from doctors in family medicine. If you’d like to self-refer, learn more about our services or find the specialist who is right for you, call the service number that fits your needs.
