Orthopedic treatment is a series of surgeries that helps to fix problems in the musculoskeletal system.
The most common orthopedic procedures are:
Broken bones and fractures. This method is the most common form of orthopedic treatment. The doctor will set up the break and apply a splint or cast so that the injury can heal on it’s own. In this case, physical therapy may be required to renew the strength in the bone when the cast is removed.
Arthroscopic Surgery. This kind of surgery is much less invasive than traditional surgery. It involves the use of a small camera with a light attached so that the surgeon can examine the area of injury. It can be done on a wide range of body parts including the knee, hip, and other areas. This type of surgery will not create tissue damage and involves smaller incisions. The healing process is faster.
ACL Procedures. ACL stands for “anterior cruciate ligament.” It is the ligament that keeps your knee in place. If the ACL is torn or ruptured, it is one of the most painful injuries. It is very serious and needs immediate attention. It has to be treated using orthopedic reconstruction methods. It is common in athletes because it happens when there is a huge impact, twisting, or shifting due to certain activities.
