Orthopedic Surgery is the practice of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system – bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Orthopedists are Medical Doctors who treat conditions that include everything from sports injuries and joint replacement to fractures and spinal deformity.
Furthermore, some Orthopedists specialize in specific parts of the body, while others specialize in orthopedic sports medicine, focusing on working with athletes after injury or to prevent further injury.
In the event of trauma or injury, an Orthopedic Specialist can provide medical diagnosis and plan of treatment. Treatments could include surgical or non-surgical methods, such as using braces, orthotic devices, Chiropractic Manipulative Treatment, Physical Therapy, Massage, Acupuncture, soft tissue work, laser or ultrasound therapy, and various other rehabilitation techniques. This helps to enable the patient to get back to their daily activities or back onto the sports field in a quick, efficient, and safe manner under the guidance of an expert eye.
Using a combination of medical and surgical approaches, along with thorough rehabilitation, Orthopedists are dedicated to helping patients regain functionality.
At Comprehensive Medical Care, our Orthopedic Doctors take a multi-discipline, comprehensive approach, working alongside other Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Physical/Occupational Therapists, Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, and Athletic
Trainers to create the best treatment approach.
Our Orthopedic Doctors also have the benefit of access to the NJ FASSST team of Performance Coaches, spending time analyzing movement patterns and coordinating fitness conditioning from every angle to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and return to play as well as aid in the prevention of future injuries.
