What is an Orthopedic Injury?
Orthopedic injuries include any injury that affects the skeleton and its structures, from tendons and ligaments to nerves and muscles. Often caused by an accident or repeated trauma, damage can range depending on the nature of the accident and result in anything from a minor muscle strain to a serious degenerative joint condition.
Because humans rely on our joints and muscles to perform daily tasks and functions, any long-lasting or permanent injury can have a detrimental effect on one’s life and require adaptation and costly treatment. Orthopedic injuries can be challenging to diagnose and treat, and those who are injured are often referred to a medical specialist in orthopedics to address their unique injuries.
Common Orthopedic Injuries
Orthopedic injuries can result from a wide range of accidents, though they’re most often seen after a motor vehicle accident involving a car, bus, motorcycle, or truck. Additionally, individuals can be injured in a slip and fall accident on wet surfaces, in a bicycle accident, and more. Apart from a single incident, orthopedic injuries can also develop over time as a result of repeated movements, such as by heavy lifting.
Common orthopedic injuries that can result after trauma include:
- Fractures: These injuries can take weeks to heal and can hinder your mobility. Often acquired after a sudden impact in a car accident, they can sometimes require surgery and result in permanent disability or impairment.
- Sprains and strains: Sprains and strains occur after hyper-extending muscles, and though they tend to heal and are temporary, they can often put you out of work for a few days or weeks.
- Joint damage and nerve pressure: Pain in your joints can limit your mobility and often occur as a result of repetitive motions. Some common injuries include tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Injured individuals may need surgery or laser therapy to reduce inflammation.
- Spinal damage: One of the most serious orthopedic injuries, a motor vehicle accident can cause damage to your back or spinal cord, either resulting in severe chronic pain or causing paralysis.
Orthopedic injuries are also associated with joint issues like arthritis. Arthritis can be painful and require extensive surgery and physical therapy, both of which can cost thousands of dollars over time.
