Looking for relief from joint pain?

Thanks to joint aches and pains, many people find that everyday activities like gardening, biking, golfing, and even playing with kids or grandkids may bring more pain than pleasure. If you can relate, we may be able to help. Answer a few questions to see if you should speak with a provider about finding the right treatment to help put the go in your get-up-and-go again.

Quality Designations

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina recognizes our quality, and has awarded Frye Regional Medical Center a Blue Distinction Center+ in Spine Surgery. This prestigious national award demonstrates high quality and improved outcomes for people receiving treatment, with lower rates of complications and fewer return trips to the hospital.

Treatment Options


Orthopedic surgeons often recommend that patients explore non-surgical treatments first when they experience joint pain. Whether you are exploring conservative treatments or have decided to undergo surgery you may be a candidate for rehabilitation services. Frye's rehabilitation services offer an experienced interdisciplinary team of professionals. Together, they assist patients who are experiencing joint pain or certain orthopedic injuries or surgeries, and arthritic conditions to improve their functional abilities and maximize successful outcomes. Please call (828) 315-3186 for more information.
