Examination by an orthopedist or a rehabilitation doctor?

Blog - 2024-01-16

With problems with the musculoskeletal system, we are often faced with a choice: orthopedics or rehabilitation medicine? Understanding the differences between these disciplines is key to choosing the best care.

Orthopedics: Specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with joints, muscles, ligaments and disorders of the locomotor system. Ideal for dealing with acute injuries such as accidents, sprains, fractures , or chronic pain requiring specialized intervention. Orthopedists offer surgical and non-surgical treatment options, including modern methods such as arthroscopy or laser therapy. They also often deal with chronic degenerative joint diseases and, less often, painful conditions based on autoimmune and rheumatological causes, e.g. M. Bechtěrev, inflammatory joint diseases of immunological origin, e.g. rheumatoid arthritis of the joints .

Rehabilitation medicine: deals with a comprehensive approach to the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. The priority is to analyze the function of the musculoskeletal system and create an individualized treatment plan. Rehabilitation medicine can be an ideal choice for patients with long-term pain, including those caused by injuries, inflammatory diseases or birth defects. This approach often includes therapies such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy or hydrotherapy, and can be combined with methods used in orthopedics and rheumatology.

When choosing between orthopedics and rehabilitation medicine, it is important to consider the nature and severity of your condition. Orthopedic care is suitable for acute and specific problems, while rehabilitation medicine offers a wider range of therapies to improve overall function and reduce pain. According to statistics, it is appropriate for 95% of patients with locomotor system problems to undergo rehabilitation treatment. This approach may be more suitable for many patients, as it takes into account the individual's overall health and functional needs. It is crucial that the doctor considers not only the origin and nature of the problems, but also their severity and long-term effect on the patient's quality of life when choosing the appropriate treatment.

Optimum results can be achieved in cooperation with experts from both fields. When choosing a treatment, communication with your doctor and a detailed understanding of the options that can help you achieve the best possible treatment are key. For more details and an understanding of these two important medical fields, visit the Pavel Kolář Center for Movement Medicine - Rehabilitation Medicine and the Pavel Kolář Center for Movement Medicine - Orthopedics .

Prevention is also an important aspect in the care of the musculoskeletal system. A comprehensive preventive check-up, offered at the Pavel Kolář Center for Movement Medicine, enables a thorough assessment of your state of health. This examination focuses on the prevention of metabolic, cardiovascular and oncological diseases and includes a series of examinations and analyses. Early diagnosis and prevention can significantly contribute to maintaining the health of the musculoskeletal system and choosing an appropriate treatment approach.
