Understanding Orthopedics and how Orthopedic Products Work
Orthopedics, or Orthopaedics, is defined as a branch of medicine in which surgeons specifically focus on issues related to the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons treat sports injuries, trauma, congenital disorders, tumors, and infections using both surgery and non-surgical means. Non-surgical means involves the use of orthopedic products recommended or sometimes designed by an orthopedic surgeon. Read More
Orthopedic products are designed to help relieve pain in specific parts of the body, aid in recovery from injuries, and improve your overall comfort. Orthopedics covers problems of the musculoskeletal system which practically includes the entire body, from the hip to the hand to foot and ankle. The musculoskeletal system includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves – everything that needs to be in ideal shape for you to move about comfortably. Doctor recommended orthopedics and orthopedic products can improve your overall quality of life and help you to live pain-free.
After a surgery, surgeons will often recommend orthopedic products for the patient to wear during recovery and rehabilitation, especially in the case of sports injuries. For athletes, the knee is the most common part of the body that requires orthopedic surgery and support. After orthopedic knee surgery, athletes will often wear a knee support such as the Hinged Patellar Knee Brace or a ROM (Range Of Motion), Knee Support to help prevent further injury and aid in the rehabilitation process. Some knee braces, can be used in conjunction with hot & cold therapy which incorporates the use of hot and cold packs for added therapeutic comfort and to relieve tense muscles and stressed tendons . The cold and hot compresses also aid in providing better circulation and to decrease swelling and inflammation. Orthopedic knee supports provide relief from pain, help to speed up recovery, and can help to prevent future sports injuries.
Orthopedics is not just limited to sports injuries, but can also be used treat workplace injuries and chronic conditions such as arthritis and back pain. There are elbow supports that have been designed by surgeons to specifically help those with arthritis enjoy playing their favorite sport again and help improve their game while for example others like the Carpal Wrist Support were designed to help those with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Orthopedic back braces and supports help those who have suffered a back injury or who have to deal with chronic back pain.
Orthopedic Products Also Provide Comfort
Orthopedic products are not just for injuries – they can also be designed to help improve overall comfort while seated, standing, or even while sleeping. Orthopedic surgeons have designed numerous pillows, cushions, and wedges to give you added comfort and relieve pain in otherwise uncomfortable positions.
A good night’s sleep can be the difference between a productive and a non-productive day. Orthopedic pillows have been designed to help you sleep better and relieve pain in the neck and back from uncomfortable sleeping positions. The Mid Core Orthopedic Support Pillow supports neck vertebrae in a natural position, reducing nerve pressure on the neck which reduces muscle stress and tension, resulting in a more comfortable sleep. For those with acid reflux, respiratory problems the elevated bed wedge provides the right posture for sleep and when you use it positioned to elevate your legs can also offer relief for those with circulation and swelling issues.
Orthopedic products also incorporate seating devices designed to help maintain your level of comfort while seated, whether you are in your car or at your desk. Seat cushions such as the Drive Medical Coccyx Cushion provide added support and relief off your tailbone while the Hermell in-between-the Knee-Pillow maintains proper spinal alignment and eases pain in the hips, legs, knees and back to improve positioning and provide relief.
