Orthopedics generally involves the bones of the body and the system that connects them all together – the musculoskeletal system. The structures involved include soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, or tendons that help to provide support to the bones and form the joints of the body.

Common Sources of Pain in the Body

Some of the joints of the body include the shoulder, hip, knee, and spine, and these can be common areas of pain or injury.

A rotator cuff tear or biceps tendinitis can both produce pain in the shoulder area, since these muscles cross over the shoulder joint and are part of the overall shoulder movement.

Arthritis is a condition that can impact different joints of the body, like the hip or knee, which can lead to pain or limited mobility in those areas.

In the knee, ligaments like the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, can be injured or torn.

Disc bulges can lead to back pain, and other injuries, like muscle strains, ligament sprains, overuse or repetitive use injuries can affect the joints of the body, as well.

Common Orthopedic Conditions

  • Arthritis - Involves inflammation inside of one or more joints; may progress over time
  • Strain - Involves muscle tissue that has been injured
  • Sprain - Involves a ligament that has been injured
  • Tendinitis - Inflammation of tendon; often thought to be a result of overuse or repetitive use
  • Disc bulge - Injury along the spine; often a result of forward bending and twisting
  • Fracture - A complete or partial break in a bone

Common Orthopedic Treatments:

When you’re dealing with pain, it can be difficult to figure out the source and what to do about it. You’re not alone in that, and that’s why healthcare professionals are there – to help identify the cause of the problem, discuss the treatment options with you, and put together a plan that fits your needs and goals.

Physical therapy is a common first line of treatment for those dealing with musculoskeletal injuries or pain. A physical therapist is an expert in the musculoskeletal system. They will evaluate your situation and attempt to identify a possible diagnosis. Then, they will discuss the goals of treatment, if it’s something you may benefit from, and they will begin to put together a plan of action.

These plans often include home-based and clinic-based exercises, and they can also include manual treatments like soft tissue mobilization or electrical stimulation to provide pain relief. The goals of physical therapy often include decreasing pain and/or inflammation, increasing range of motion, improving muscle strength, posture, or core control, and, depending on the condition, it may also include lifestyle or home modifications as well as education as needed.

A physician may prescribe medications or injections, as well. These medications are often meant to reduce pain or inflammation, and they may be used in addition to other treatments, like physical therapy. In some cases, surgery may be discussed or recommended as a treatment option.
