Orthopedics deals with the treatment of congenital and acquired disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Musculoskeletal disorders include diseases of the bones and joints of the limbs, some diseases of the muscles, and lesions in the soft tissue around the spine and vertebrae. The orthopedic specialist uses both conservative - therefore non-surgical - and surgical procedures for the treatment.
Due to today's sedentary lifestyle and the high proportion of sedentary workers, spinal and other musculoskeletal complaints appear earlier and earlier. Often, these lesions are not yet painful, however, it is a good idea to see a specialist as soon as possible so that more serious complaints can be prevented from developing.
