Orthopaedic injuries are injuries that relate to the musculoskeletal system, including bones, muscles, ligaments, joints, and tendons. These types of injuries can vary in their severity and impact on an individual’s social, personal and professional life.
Orthopaedic injuries can arise from almost any type of accident or incident, including motor vehicle accidents, accidents at work, slip and falls, sports and recreational incidents, and professional negligence. Common orthopaedic injuries include:
- Torn ligaments
Orthopaedic injuries can sometimes resolve quickly, however for those injuries that do not resolve quickly such injuries can also result in chronic pain, limited mobility and range of motion, loss of function, and emotional injuries such as depression and anxiety. Orthopaedic injuries can require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation over a long period of time.
Often proving a claim for orthopaedic injuries requires the use of not only orthpaedic experts, but also occupational therapists who can give opinions on the functional capacity of an injured individual.
