General Orthopedics Q & A

What is general orthopedics?

General orthopedics specialists evaluate, diagnose, and treat injuries and illnesses in your musculoskeletal system. This system encompasses both hard and soft tissues, including your bones, joints, tendons, nerves, ligaments, cartilage, muscles, and other tissues.  

All the parts of your musculoskeletal system work in tandem to provide stability and function. But, when one or more parts of this complex system breaks down, the general orthopedics specialists at Congress Orthopaedic Associates can restore your health and function. 

What illnesses and injuries do general orthopedics specialists treat?

General orthopedics specialists at Congress Orthopaedic Associates treat a very wide range of conditions, with a few of the most common being: 

Sports injuries

Some common orthopedic sports injuries include Achilles tendon tears, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, meniscal tears, sprains, and strains.

Shoulder injuries

Several problems can cause shoulder pain and movement issues, including rotator cuff damage, labral tears, and shoulder impingement syndrome. 

Fractures

Fractures can occur anywhere, but the bones most affected are those in the legs, feet, hands, and arms.

Foot problems

Deformities like bunions and hammertoe are two of the most common orthopedic foot problems.

Hip problems

Arthritis is one of the most common hip problems. Other issues like labral tears can also cause pain and range-of-motion limitations.
