Spine and Joints Clinic

The world has rapidly transitioned into the digital age, where advanced technology is easily at our disposal and powerful social media platforms play an integral role in society’s daily functioning. Living in a generation where it is normalized to be glued to our cellular devices and screens for several hours on end, may cause us to overlook the plethora of issues that may be developing in the physiology of our bodies. You may be oblivious to the various amounts of damage that your poor posture and sedentary lifestyle are contributing to, from simply overusing your phone or computer. The worsening neck, back, or knee pain that you have constantly overlooked is still present and may cause deterioration, inevitably leading to adverse health outcomes if it continues to be ignored. The first step in battling all of these complications is to find the root of the problem through proper diagnoses and becoming aware of key risk factors that make an individual more susceptible to acquiring such issues, to begin with. These risk factors can be both genetic and environmental.

What is Orthopedic?

Orthopedic refers to the division of medicine that orients around the musculoskeletal system, consisting of the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons (Penn Medicine, 2019).

What is Orthopedic Rehabilitation?

Orthopedic rehabilitation is the process of utilizing a therapeutic approach to help patients recovering from surgery, injury, illness, and trauma. This allows them to transition to normal life and correct any limitations related to the musculoskeletal system. It is important to monitor pain levels associated with the trauma and apply preventative measures to avoid additional injuries or adverse health outcomes that can presumably occur. Making the necessary lifestyle changes through guidance from trained professionals, helps the patient adapt a healthier way of living.
