Dr. Michael Ward is a family practice physician and expert in primary care and sports medicine. He treats amateur and professional athletes, as well as active individuals of all ages. In addition to men’s health and occupational medicine, Dr. Ward has a special interest in musculoskeletal issues such as arthritis, fractures and ligament damage. He has considerable expertise with prolotherapy, or non-surgical ligament reconstruction, which is a form of treatment for chronic pain. He believes wellness is achieved through exercise, a balanced diet, fitness and ongoing education, and feels prevention plays a key role in getting his patients back to an active, healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible.
