Whether through trauma, overuse, or wear and tear, almost all of us at one stage in our lives will be affected by muscle, joint, or bone problems. People of all ages are in need of orthopedic treatment. Effective treatment and rehabilitation is vital to keep you moving unimpeded and prevent problems from recurring.
You might associate orthopedics with broken bones, or joint replacement surgery, but orthopedic doctors deal with a much broader set of issues associated with the musculoskeletal system.
As we get older, past injuries can resurface, affecting our mobility and quality of life. In adulthood, our bodies are not as effective at healing themselves, and any injury sustained can have a knock-on effect, especially if it is not dealt with quickly and effectively. Take care of your future self by taking your condition seriously and seeking specialist medical advice from an orthopedic doctor.
Here are a few facts about common orthopedics and some common problems we treat here at Westchester Medical Healthcare.
