Treatment
There are multiple ways for an Orthopedist to treat your pain and injuries including surgery and mechanical devices to correct the issue. The exact treatment will depend on your condition, pain levels, and what is causing that pain. Treatment can range from physical therapy to surgery. Seeing a specialist is important because they are the most knowledgeable about various treatment options and have seen first hand what delivers the best results. If you are living with pain in your bones or joints, you can get relief by seeing an Orthopedic specialist.
What does an Orthopedic Surgeon do?
Orthopedic surgeons examine patients, diagnose conditions, and treat diseases or injuries related to the musculoskeletal system. They help patient’s bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and joints function properly so they can have a full range of motion without any pain. This can transform the lives of patients that are living with chronic pain and injuries. With over 206 bones in the body, there are many things that can go wrong, causing pain and limiting someone’s daily activities. It is important to see a specialist, rather than a general practitioner, as they have the most knowledge in how to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions. Orthopedic surgeons are most known for their activities in the sports medicine field, but they treat people of all ages and abilities. Areas like rehabilitation have a vast impact on the elderly that are frequently undergoing things like hip replacements.
