General Orthopaedics in San Antonio
Orthopaedic Surgeons specialize in treatment of your musculoskeletal (or locomotor) system. Your musculoskeletal system is comprised of the bones, muscles, joints, cartilage and tendons that give your body the structure it needs for support, structure, and stability, and mobility.
When this system breaks down, either by sports injuries and repetitive movement injuries, or through degenerative diseases like Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis, you may need a General Orthopaedist (orthopaedic specialist) to correctly assess, diagnose, and treat your orthopaedic problem.
You may be experiencing pain from a compromised joint, such as a breakdown of cartilage in your knee causing bone to rub against bone. Or you may be suffering from an Orthopaedic Disorder that compromises the function of your entire musculoskeletal system, like arthritis or deconditioning from being out of shape. Many of these problems respond to a tailored physical therapy program.
