Orthopedics Q & A

What is orthopedics?

Orthopedics focuses on conditions in your musculoskeletal system: the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues in your body. To make sure you get the highest standard of care, Catalyst Medical Group houses all of the valley's orthopedic surgeons under one roof.

What types of problems do orthopedic providers treat?

Musculoskeletal problems can occur due to congenital deformity, sports injury, age-related conditions, or other reasons. Some issues that affect the musculoskeletal system include:

  • Fractures
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendon strains
  • Spinal deformities
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Bone tumors
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Joint dislocations

Orthopedic care at Catalyst Medical Group covers all types of musculoskeletal conditions, whether they affect your knees, shoulders, hips, feet, or some other part of your body. 

How does orthopedic diagnosis work?

When you come to Catalyst Medical Group with an orthopedic problem, the team immediately goes to work finding the reason for your difficulties. 

The practice has a full array of diagnostic equipment in the office, including lab and radiology tools like X-ray and MRI. This makes it convenient for you and also allows the team to make a diagnosis quickly. 

How does orthopedic treatment work?

Orthopedic treatment starts with conservative nonsurgical approaches, such as:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Activity modifications
  • Brace, splint, sling, or other immobilizing devices
  • Crutches, walker, or cane
  • Anti-inflammatory injections

In some situations, nonsurgical care may not work, for example, with severe sports injuries or chronic arthritis pain. 

The orthopedic surgeons at Catalyst Medical Group offer a broad range of surgical options, including minimally invasive techniques like arthroscopic surgery and joint replacement. 

With these surgical approaches, the surgeons use smaller incisions and view the surgical site through a tiny camera. They can perform highly precise repairs with far less damage than with traditional surgical approaches. 

This leads to shorter recoveries and a faster return to your regular activities. In fact, most surgeries are outpatient procedures. 

Catalyst Medical Group is committed to a healthy and thriving community, and top-quality orthopedics is one of the many ways, they make it happen. Thank you for visiting us online.  If you’re injured or need help with chronic pain, call the office to schedule your consultation at 208.743.3523.
