Orthopaedic injuries are severe physical conditions which can result in chronic and/or long-term pain. Joints, muscles, bones, tendons, cartilage and ligaments can be the affected area of an orthopaedic injury.
Examples of orthopaedic injuries include:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Compressive injury
- Herniated disks
Severe orthopaedic injuries affect most aspects of your life including your ability to work. In many instances the damages of an orthopaedic injury require surgery and surgical implants. Conditions such as chronic pain, arthritis, fatigue and reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) are related to serious orthopaedic injuries.
Orthopaedic injuries can arise as a result of accidents, unsafe conditions, defective products, motor vehicle accidents, unmaintained public or private properties or dangerous or hazardous working areas or construction sites.
