Orthopaedics Q & A

What is orthopedics?

Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that involves treating injuries and diseases of your musculoskeletal system. This specialty involves diagnosing and treating any ailments that affect your:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Ligaments

Orthopedics can even include treating pain-causing nerve issues. If you have a pinched nerve in your back that’s causing ongoing pain, for instance, an orthopedic specialist is your go-to practitioner.

When should I see an orthopedist?

You need to see an orthopedist anytime you have pain, especially if it’s getting worse or not improving after several days. It’s particularly important to have an orthopedic evaluation at Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield if you have or experience:

  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains or strains
  • Arthritis or joint pain
  • Numbness or burning in your extremities
  • Car accident injuries, including whiplash
  • Workplace trauma, like falling from a ladder

You should also have an orthopedic evaluation at Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield right away if you think you have a broken bone since this type of injury requires immediate medical intervention to promote proper healing.

If you have a sports injury, you can meet with a leading sports medicine specialist who treats your injury, while also helping you throughout your rehabilitation to ensure you get back in the game as quickly as possible.

How are orthopedic issues treated?

Your orthopedic treatment plan is entirely tailored to you and your specific diagnosis. At Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield, you can get any essential imaging performed right on-site — including CT scans and MRIs — so you can get diagnosed and treated the same day.

Whether you have pain or injuries in your hips, knees, shoulders, or other areas, your orthopedic injury treatment plan may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Splinting, casting or bracing
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

For more severe orthopedic issues, such as a complete bone fracture, crush injury, or arthritic deterioration, you might need surgery. Orthopedic surgery, which is usually minimally invasive, can involve repairing or grafting tissues, removing damaged tissues, or implanting rods, screws, or plates.
