What is Orthopedics?
Orthopedics is the brand of medicine that deals with conditions and deformities of the bones joints and muscles or manipulation of the musco-skeletal system.
Orthopedic conditions can be treated surgically or non-surgically with medications, physical therapy, exercise, alternate therapies or by a range of surgical procedures, including some that are minimally invasive and thus less traumatic to the body than traditional open surgery.
The main aim of orthopedic treatment is to restore or preserve your musculoskeletal function while eliminating pain.
