How can an Orthopaedic Doctor help you?

Orthopaedic Doctors or ortho surgeons are qualified to diagnose orthopaedic problems, perform or prescribe treatments, and assist with rehabilitation. They 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”).

Orthopaedic doctors specialize in treating the hand & wrist, foot and ankle, knee, shoulder and elbow, neck, back, hips. It is a common misconception that orthopaedic doctors always recommend surgery to treat bone and joint problems. In most cases, surgery is a last resort. Instead, your orthopaedic doctor will most likely recommend these non-surgical treatments –

  • Rest
  • Physical therapy or rehab
  • Medications/injectionsLifestyle changes (when your doctor helps you find other activities that don’t aggravate your injury)

When do you need to consult an Orthopaedic Surgeon?

The symptoms of orthopaedic issues will vary depending on the specific condition and body part. If you have any of the following symptoms, it is recommended you consult an ortho doctor online right away-

  • Deformities or unusual appearance of a joint
  • Fatigue combined with joint pain or swelling
  • Joint stiffness, deformity or difficilty of motion
  • Muscle spasms
  • Numbness, tingling or weakness
  • Pain, which may be mild, moderate or severe and sharp, dull, achy, crampy, stabbing, or burning
  • Swelling of the injured or diseased area
  • Warmth and redness in case of infection or inflammation
  • Hearing a snapping, grinding or popping sound during the injury
  • Fracture or an open wound or bone sticking through the skin

Such symptoms as pain, muscle spasms, numbness, swelling and stiffness may come and go depending on the specific condition and your activity level. Pain and other symptoms from orthopaedic conditions can limit activity if it worsens with movement. If your body hurts, is stiff, is often swollen, or if you have an injury in your joints, bones, muscles, or ligaments, you may want to see an orthopaedic surgeon.

Common illnesses treated by Orthopaedic Doctors

The common illnesses that are treated by orthopaedic doctors are-

  • Acute injuries, such as traumatic bone fractures and dislocated joints.
  • Arthritis, which is joint inflammation causing pain, joint damage, and loss of joint function.
  • Bursitis, which is the inflammation and irritation of a bursa. Bursae are fluid-filled sacs inside joints that cushion ligaments, tendons and muscles as they move over bones.
  • Muscle Atrophy, which is the loss of muscle tissue causing weakness and difficulty moving. It can occur with lack of use, such as being bedridden, or from damage to the nerves controlling the muscle movement.
  • Orthopaedic Autoimmune Diseases, which occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly starts attacking its own healthy cells and tissues like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma.
  • Osteomalacia, which causes an adult’s bones to soften. It results in muscle weakness, bowed legs, bone pain, and fractures. Vitamin D deficiency is the most common cause of this condition.
  • Osteomyelitis, which is an infection in the bone
  • Osteoporosis, which is the loss of bone density making the bones weak and brittle increasing the risk of fractures.
  • Pinched nerve, which is when a spinal nerve root becomes compressed or irritated. A nerve root is where a spinal nerve branches off the spinal cord and exits the spine between two vertebrae. Spinal disc problems are the main cause of a pinched nerve.
  • Tendinitis, which is inflammation and irritation of a tendon. It is a form of overuse injury from repetitive motions or forces.
