AOSMI Orthopedic Care FAQs

What types of injuries do orthopedic doctors treat?

Orthopedic doctors treat a wide range of injuries related to the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. They commonly treat fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains, torn ligaments, tendon injuries, and sports-related injuries, among others.

What are the most common orthopedic problems?

The most common orthopedic problems include:

  • Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint disease that causes joint pain and stiffness.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune disorder that affects the joints, causing pain, swelling, and deformity.
  • Back and neck pain: Commonly caused by issues like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or muscle strains.
  • Fractures: Broken bones resulting from accidents, falls, or trauma.
  • Tendonitis: Inflammation or irritation of a tendon, often caused by overuse or repetitive motions.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: Compression of the median nerve in the wrist, leading to hand numbness and pain.
  • Rotator cuff tears: Damage or tears to the tendons in the shoulder.
  • Ligament sprains: Stretching or tearing of ligaments, often seen in the ankles, knees, or wrists.

What is considered a chronic orthopedic problem?

A chronic orthopedic problem refers to a condition that persists over a long period of time, usually more than three months. Examples include chronic back pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic tendinitis, or degenerative disc disease.

When should I go to an orthopedic urgent care instead of the ER?

The decision to go to an orthopedic urgent care versus the emergency room (ER) depends on the severity and nature of the injury or condition. Orthopedic urgent care centers are specialized facilities equipped to handle urgent orthopedic injuries or conditions that are not life-threatening but require prompt attention. Examples may include fractures, dislocations, sprains, or strains. The ER should be visited for severe injuries or conditions that are potentially life-threatening or involve significant bleeding, loss of consciousness, or other emergency medical situations.

What is considered an orthopedic emergency?

Orthopedic emergencies typically involve severe injuries or conditions that require immediate medical attention to prevent long-term disability or permanent damage. Examples of orthopedic emergencies include compound fractures (where the bone pierces through the skin), joint dislocations, spinal cord injuries, severe open wounds, major trauma resulting from accidents, or acute compartment syndrome (a condition involving increased pressure within a muscle compartment).
