If you play sports, are in your 40s or 50s, or have family and friends who are physically active, you’ve probably heard of the word "orthopedics.”
But do you know what orthopedic doctors really do? And how do you know if you could benefit from seeing one?
WHAT DOES AN ORTHOPEDIC DOCTOR DO?
Orthopedic doctors (sometimes also called orthopaedic doctors or orthopaedic surgeons) are doctors who focus on caring for your bones, joints, ligaments, nerves, and tendons (the tissue that connects bones and joints). These parts of your body are also referred to as your “musculoskeletal system.”
Orthopedic doctors:diagnose and treat injuries caused by sports or physical activity; help you manage conditions that usually get worse over time, like arthritis or osteoporosis; and help you avoid pain and discomfort from using a muscle or joint too often (also called “overuse injuries”).
Orthopedic doctors specialize in treating these parts of the body:
- hand and wrist
- foot and ankle
- shoulder and elbow
It’s a common misconception that orthopedic doctors always recommend surgery to treat bone and joint problems.
In most cases, surgery is the last resort.
Instead, your orthopedic doctor will most likely recommend non-surgical treatments like:
- physical therapy or rehab
- lifestyle change (when your doctor helps you find other activities that don’t aggravate your injury)
