Musculoskeletal problems are a common plight among Americans, and treatment options are readily available. Treatment plans vary greatly based on the specific condition and the patient’s lifestyle, but prevalent solutions administered by orthopaedic specialists include non-surgical treatments, such as platelet rich plasma therapy and hyaluronic acid injections, and surgeries to correct injuries to the musculoskeletal system. Many orthopaedic patients also participate in physical therapy regimens to help facilitate healing.
