Welcome to Orthoped.org !
This is your authentic source for free orthopedic treatment advice by a specialist doctor – Orthoped. Bones and joints have their peculiar characteristics and diseases. It will be an intriguing and interesting endeavor for me, as a specialist orthopedic doctor to provide you with free orthopedic advice to solve your health problems. Various orthopedic diseases will be discussed along with a detailed but to-the-point explanation of their symptoms and treatment. The need for diagnostic tests and their appropriate timing for accurate results will also be outlined.
Physical therapy forms an important part of recovery from any longstanding orthopedic disease. Even the most skillfully performed surgery by an orthopedic doctor can fail miserably in the absence of physical therapy after surgery. The roles of an orthopedic doctor and physical therapy are similar to a potter and sunlight respectively. A potter (orthopedic doctor) may delicately mold clay (orthopedic patient) into a beautiful pot, but it is only the warmth of sunlight (physical therapy), which bakes them into usable pots (rehabilitated patient). Hence, a brief overview of relevant physical therapy needed for rehabilitation after orthopedic injuries and surgeries will also be included.
