Orthopedic Health


Orthopedic health encompasses the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Having a healthy musculoskeletal system is important for performing activities of daily living, working, exercising, and enjoying your hobbies. Orthopedic issues can have a negative impact on both your physical and mental health, leading to pain and decreased mobility, stress, anxiety, and depression. Therefore, it’s important to consult a qualified orthopedic specialist if you are experiencing musculoskeletal symptoms. The skilled Physical Therapists at FYZICAL Bothell can help you overcome your pain or mobility issues.

The Musculoskeletal System

Your musculoskeletal system helps to provide stability and support to your body and allows you to move. It’s divided into two systems: the muscular and the skeletal systems.
  • The muscular system includes all types of muscles in your body, as well as the tendons that attach your muscles to your bones.
  • The skeletal system includes the bones of your body, which connect to form joints that provide your body with a skeleton. Accessory structures, including cartilage, ligaments, and bursae, provide form and function to your bones and joints.
Symptoms of musculoskeletal problems include pain, loss of motion, inflammation, stiffness, numbness, weakness, instability, or deformity.

Benefits of Orthopedic Health

Musculoskeletal conditions can be managed and even reversed with proper exercise and movement. The physical therapists at FYZICAL Bothell can help accelerate your body’s natural healing processes and get you moving again.

What Is Orthopedic Health?

Orthopedic health covers a variety of conditions, including arthritis, osteoporosis, spinal pain, fractures, sprains, strains and tears, work and sports injuries, and joint replacements, as well as congenital deformities.

The goals of orthopedic physical therapy are to decrease pain, restore motion and improve function, which allows you to return to your normal activities. Orthopedic specialists use a variety of techniques, including education, manual therapy, and exercises, as well as orthopedic devices, including orthotics, prosthetics, casts, braces, taping, and splints, to achieve these goals.
