Orthopedics Q & A

How Can an Orthopedic Doctor Help Me?

According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, roughly 126.6 million Americans are affected by a musculoskeletal condition, which affects either your bones, joints, or muscles. This can become debilitating and quickly affect your daily activity and productivity. 

People use their musculoskeletal system for everything, so if you have knee pain, it could make it hard to walk. If you have elbow pain, it could make it challenging to carry things. It’s crucial to see an orthopedic doctor if your pain stays the same or becomes more intense.  

What are Common Conditions an Orthopedic Doctor Sees?

Some of the most common conditions that orthopedic doctors treat are: 

  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Foot, leg, and back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Joint instability

 

All of the above conditions can cause your life to suffer, so the medical team at East Tremont Medical Center recommends you come in for a consultation. This way, the doctor can begin treating your pain. 

What Nonsurgical Ways Can an Orthopedic Doctor Help Me?

The goal East Tremont Medical Center’s doctors is to try and treat your condition without the need for surgery. The way they alleviate musculoskeletal discomfort or pain is through less invasive treatments such as corticosteroid injections and medications. They can also assign you to physical therapy, since this can help improve your range of motion. 

What Do I Do if I Get Injured Playing Sports?

Although there are many types of sports injuries, the most common are strains and sprains. Often times, you can treat these injuries at home by resting and using an ice pack on your injury site in 20 minutes increments every two to three hours. 

If your injury causes instability or the swelling and pain don’t go away, it’s important you visit your orthopedic doctor so they can examine the injury. They can take X-rays to ensure make sure it’s nothing too serious.
