What is an Orthopedic Injury?

Orthopedic injuries primarily affect the musculoskeletal system. However, they can affect the joints, muscles, and nerves as well. This oftentimes includes broken bones and their supportive tissues as well as injuries to cartilage, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. In the more severe orthopedic injuries, surgical intervention may be required in order to correct and repair the damage.

The most common injuries are fractures, joint damage, muscle strains, nerve pressure, spinal damage, and sprains. Although some orthopedic injuries, such as sprains and strains, can heal quickly, others can lead to long-term and even permanent problems including chronic pain and mobility issues. Furthermore, a large percentage of these injuries affect the back, knees, neck, and shoulders.
