What is Orthopedic Trauma?
Orthopedic trauma is an injury to the musculoskeletal system from a source outside the body, such as a serious car accident or fall. Contacting an orthopedic trauma specialist early on is important, as these types of injuries may require extended physical therapy to achieve a speedy, full recovery.
Orthopedic trauma can occur from playing sports such as football, soccer, basketball, baseball, or any activity that might sustain hard blows to the body. Even overuse, such as long-distance running and weightlifting, can cause hairline or stress fractures.
