Orthopedic & Sports Medicine
Specialty Care for Bones, Muscles & Joints
Orthopedic and sports medicine physicians specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions or injuries of the musculoskeletal system, including bones, muscles and joints. Orthopedic health problems range from mild to traumatic. They can occur suddenly or develop slowly, begin at birth or worsen with age.
Anyone at any age could need an orthopedist during their life:
- young children in critical stages of bone growth
- adolescents with sports injuries
- young and middle-age adults who've been in accidents
- elderly individuals with age-related deterioration
Surgical and non-surgical treatments are used by orthopedic doctors with the goal of reducing pain and helping patients maintain or gain musculoskeletal control to move freely.
