Orthopedics is the medical study and specialisation of diagnosis and treatment for conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Most of us think of Orthopedics as just about bones, but it is also about your muscles, and how they work together with your bones and internal systems.
Your musculoskeletal system includes:
the joints of your bones
the fluids around your bones
the ligaments that hold your bones together
and the tendons that connect your muscles to your bones
All very important parts of your body with very important functions!
Your musculoskeletal system is what allows you to move, keeps you upright and stable, allows you to walk, bend, lift, sit, lay down, get up, dance, do yoga, take the stairs, drive, read a book....
If you have any pains or discomforts affecting any of those things, you need to see an Orthopaedic Specialist.
