Orthopedic injuries are injuries to the vertebrae, joints, bones, ligaments, cartilage and muscles. They commonly occur in motor vehicle accidents, but can also occur in falls, as when an elder person falls in a nursing home or a worker falls in a work related accident.
Orthopedic injuries can include or contribute to:
- Fractures and sprain/strain
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease / degenerative arthritis of cervical, thoracic, or lumbar discs
- Cervicalgia (pain in the neck)
- Occipital headaches or occipital neuralgia, a chronic pain disorder
- Rotator cuff injuries
