We are accepting new patients

Carolina Musculoskeletal Institute welcomes new patients! CMI works to make sure all patients are seen quickly, and treated warmly. CMI physicians’ ability to properly diagnose you depends partly on an understanding of your medical history and current conditions. If you have never been seen by a CMI physician, or if you haven’t seen one of our physicians in over a year, please fill out the patient forms.

For your convenience, you only need to print the set of PDF forms for the problem you are being seen. Please complete the forms and bring them with you along with your insurance card and a photo identification (driver’s license, state issued ID, etc).

If you have any questions regarding paperwork, please contact the CMI office at 803-644-4264.

Pain Management

CMI’s Pain Management Division deals with treating acute pain issues following surgery, injuries and joint disorders. Dr. David Goltra Jr. as the lead of the division helps alleviate pain through treatments of steroid injections, epidural injections and spinal stimulator trails.


CMI’s Imaging Division provides the ability to quickly X-ray, scan and view your condition without having to wait on an external imaging center or lab. Our in-house radiologist provides highly responsive diagnosis with the convenience of an office setting. Images are produced via traditional beam X-ray, CT scans and DEXA-Scan machines. 

To make a proper diagnosis, a physician may order an X-ray, CT scan or DEXA-Scan. These are considered types of imaging tests because they provide enhanced images of the particular body part that the physician is treating.
