Prevention and Awareness
Your musculoskeletal system is built to last. This system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscles, and nerves — the parts that work together to help you move. Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine that cares for your musculoskeletal system.
Taking care of your bones and muscles is important for maintaining mobility into your advanced years. But lifestyle choices, injury, and genetics can take a toll. Some conditions and injuries can be serious, requiring surgery, rehabilitation therapy, or long-term medication.
Whether you're a young athlete or an active
grandmother, the right information can keep you moving.
Educate yourself about injury prevention. Take charge of your existing conditions. Care well for your bones and muscles so you can keep doing what you love.
