The Practice of Bone Doctors and Sports Clinics

-What is a bone doctor?

This doctor is a very informal way of describing where the orthopedic doctor's expertise lies. An orthopedic surgeon will repair and treatment the bones of the body and their supporting tendons, ligaments and muscles. A chiropractic doctor is also considered a bone doctor as the purpose of their practice is to press on the bone structure that is causing the person's problem, which is generally the spine.

Many times when bones become misaligned they can cause illnesses or pain processes. An orthopedic doctor will diagnosis the bone problem, figure out the best treatment and proceed with a progressive plan of care to heal, improve and decrease pain and discomfort of the bone problem.

-What Makes a Bone Specialist Differ from a Traditional Doctor?

This is a special medical doctor who has graduated medical school and has received further training in the areas of bone diseases, bone fractures, and misaligned bones and all tissues that have to do with the bone structure such as the ligaments, tendons and muscles. The bone specialist may replace diseased joints such as in the case of knee replacement surgery.

They are also trained to reconstruct bones and joints due to injury and or illnesses. One surgical procedure that is commonly done is known as arthroscopic surgery. This doctor will see patients with bad knees, hips and shoulders such as, rotor cuff injuries and it is common to have these areas replaced as one get older. There are many different kinds of orthopedic specialists.

Some doctors have an expertise for hand injuries or deformities only. Some doctors have an expertise for foot injuries and or deformities. Others may only treat shoulders, hips and knee problems. A doctor who concentrates on one area of the body may be able to help the patient more than a doctor who treats the entire skeletal of the patient.

-What is a Sports Clinic All About?

The orthopedic doctor may also be involved in a sports clinic for sports players of football, baseball, hockey, basketball and the like. There will be an orthopedic doctor on hand during games to offer their expertise and assistance in a player is injured.

This rehabilitation and training clinic will treat neurological and orthopedic conditions where many different kinds of treatments are used. Some of these treatments may range from exercise equipment, heat, cold, massage therapy and much more.

The orthopedic doctor may want their patient to attend a clinic of this sort to regain use of an extremity after a surgical procedure or after an injury. This clinic is largely a physical therapy clinic. A doctor generally manages and oversees the clinic and patient's progress with physical therapy and the physical therapy assistants do the bulk of the retraining of patient's limbs, back or body. This type of clinic is not just for the sports player.

-A Bit of History

The area of expertise of an orthopedic doctor has been around for years. Bone specialists began this area of care in the 1700 hundreds, and these doctors started out by treating children. Children who displayed certain deformities at birth such as spine and leg or arm deformities would be treated by the orthopedic.

By the 1800 this areas of expertise gained momentum and along with this increased knowledge came and advanced knowledge of how the muscles, ligaments and tendons affected progressive bone diseases or deformities. In the late 1800 hundreds the sports clinics began to open and offer services to all ages of patients.
