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.
Dr Carter is professional, friendly, and gives pragmatic advice. Dr Carter's office staff are equally friendly and willing to help. The office has called me on several occasions after hours in order to give me immediate information and to confirm appointments.
Dr Carter does not keep you waiting. She once called me during the evening of a work night to inform me of my MRI results. Instead of waiting to tell me the following morning, Dr Carter spoke to me as soon as she could. You can tell that Dr Carter and her staff treat patients like customers. Thumbs up all around.

Dr. Carter was extremely thorough and genuinely wanted to understand everything that was happening. She asked lots of questions, performed a thorough examination, called my doctors for additional records and rendered a very thoughtful opinion on my diagnosis. She then laid out for me some of the options that were available for treating me. Dr. Carter showed me the exercises in the program she recommended and gave me worksheets for reminders at home. Dr. Carter performed two spinal injections at the time of my visit which seemed to target the exact locations where my symptoms were most severe. I would Highly recommend Dr. Carter!
