The musculoskeletal system is comprised of the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, skin and nerves. Within these systems there can be many disorders. The medical specialty for these systems is called Orthopedics. A few examples of potential disorders are:
Fractures and dislocations
Torn ligaments, sprains, and strains
Tendon injuries, pulled muscles, and bursitis
Ruptured disks, sciatica, and low back pain
Arthritis and osteoporosis
Almost all of these injuries or disorders will require after care, once you have received treatment from your physician. The after care and potentially the need for medical supplies will be important for a full return to mobility, strength and health. In many instances these products have been designed by orthopedic surgeons and will be worn during recovery and/or rehabilitation.
So, whether you have a chronic condition such as arthritis or back pain, a workplace injury such as a burn or strain, or a sports injury such as a torn ligament or fracture. You can find pain relief through the use of orthopedic products.
