Orthopedics literally means “straight child” (in Greek). The word has come to refer to the study, diagnosis, treatment of (illnesses, injuries, and conditions affecting any aspect of) the musculoskeletal system (including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves).

Casts, splints, orthotics, amputations, prostheses, traction, surgery, and wound care are some of the most commonly associated aspects of orthopedic medicine.

Orthopedics is an integral part of sports medicine, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and many other approaches to reducing physical pain and improving body function.
