What is Orthopedic Medicine?
Orthopedic medicine focuses on diagnosing and treating injury or illness associated with the muscles, joints, bones and tendons. Orthopedic medicine is beneficial in treating patients with musculoskeletal diseases, chronic pain and arthritis, as well as athletic injuries, broken bones and carpal tunnel syndrome.
The most common athletic injuries are orthopedic injuries. Our goal at Southwestern Medical Center is to ensure proper and expedient healing to get you back in the game in no time. Some of the most frequent athletic injuries are ACL and meniscus tears as well as ankle, knee or foot bone injuries.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome presents as numbness, tingling, pain or weakness in the wrist or hand. It is caused by pressure bearing down on the median nerve. The pressure is caused by inflammation, which can originate from repeated movements, disease or lifestyle changes (i.e. pregnancy).
