Orthopedic Injury Q & A

What is an orthopedic injury?

Orthopedic injuries affect the musculoskeletal system: the bones, ligaments, tendons, joints, and other tissues in your body. Usually, orthopedic injuries occur as a result of sudden trauma but can occur in other ways too. 

Common causes of orthopedic injuries include sports injuries and workplace falls.

What are some common orthopedic injuries?

Orthopedic injuries include:

  • Muscle strains
  • Tendon strains
  • Tendon tears
  • Inflammation 
  • Ligament sprains (stretching or tearing)
  • Cartilage tears
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures

Traumatic orthopedic injuries usually cause pain, stiffness, swelling, or difficulty moving. But some orthopedic injuries, like tendinitis, happen due to wear-and-tear and thus have less-obvious symptoms that come on gradually.

When should I seek medical care for an orthopedic injury?

It’s important to seek medical attention for an orthopedic injury as soon as you have symptoms. Although your body can heal most injuries, the healing process may not happen quickly enough, and you could suffer unnecessarily in the meantime.

Without treatment, you also could heal improperly, possibly leading to a problem like post-traumatic arthritis, a type of osteoarthritis that causes cartilage breakdown at the site of a previous injury. 

Orthopedic injury treatment at Genesis Pain and Regenerative Medicine can stimulate healthy healing, ease your pain, reduce your risk of problems later, and help you return to normal faster.

How are orthopedic injuries treated?

Dr. Enty tailors your treatment to your injury, lifestyle, and recovery goals. Genesis Pain and Regenerative Medicine offers the full spectrum of orthopedic injury treatments, emphasizing the minimally invasive approach whenever possible. 

The purpose of orthopedic injury treatment is to relieve your pain while helping your body heal quickly. You may need precision medicine injections, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), human tissue allograft (HTA), or a combination of the two. 

During your recovery, you may need to wear a brace or splint. Physical therapy plays a large role in recovery, as it helps strengthen the tissues around your injury and supports healthy movement without risking another injury. 

Treating your orthopedic injury now can help you get back to the things you enjoy with as little downtime as possible. Even if you have chronic pain due to an old orthopedic injury, Dr. Enty has state-of-the-art solutions to help.
