Benjamin Miller, D.O., is a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician specializing in sports and musculoskeletal medicine. He treats patients who have overuse and acute injuries that affect the joints and muscles of the entire body, including ligament sprains, joint dislocations, tendon tears and inflammation, as well as orthopaedic injuries that don’t need surgery. Dr. Miller is experienced in the use of ultrasound for diagnosing and treating these conditions. 

Caring for athletes of all abilities and levels, from recreational to professional, Dr. Miller believes treatment should be tailored to each patient to maximize recovery.
