Orthopedics Q & A

What is orthopedics?

Orthopedics focuses on injuries and diseases that affect your body’s musculoskeletal system. Since that system extends past your bones and muscles to include your joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves, it’s no surprise that many people have a hard time zeroing in on an orthopedic specialist’s focus.

If you’re having pain in your body that feels like it’s resulting from your muscles or joints, an orthopedic specialist can be a source of help. Some common conditions orthopedics treats include:

  • Hip pain
  • Back pain
  • Repetitive strain injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain

What should I expect from orthopedics?

Many people have to go outside their primary care provider’s office to seek orthopedic care. Primary Care Internal Medicine prioritizes comfort and convenience for their patients, however, so they offer this specialty at their office. Their orthopedic specialist is available every Tuesday.

When you meet with an orthopedic doctor, the first step is to diagnose your issue. By getting to the root of your pain or the cause of your symptoms, your orthopedic doctor can begin to tailor a treatment plan to you.

What treatments are available for orthopedic issues?

As you can imagine, because orthopedics is such a broad field, the available treatments are also wide-ranging. That’s why your Pinnacle Care Internal Medicine orthopedic doctor customizes a treatment plan to your unique condition and your specific body.

Some of the possible types of treatment include:

  • Casting to allow proper healing
  • Certain types of rehabilitative exercises
  • Medication
  • Surgery

Physical rehabilitation is a key component of orthopedic care. Your musculoskeletal system is a complex network. In many cases, you can’t relieve pain for a part of this system until you realign and restrengthen the entire network.

Customized physical therapy helps you give your musculoskeletal system the support it needs to work as a whole, laying the foundation for a healthy, active, pain-free life.

Your orthopedic doctor will also be able to give you tips for injury or disease prevention, protecting the work you do during your treatment.

If you have undiagnosed pain or have been looking for dedicated orthopedic care in a welcoming environment, call Pinnacle Care Internal Medicine or schedule your appointment online.
