Who Do Orthopaedic Injuries Happen To?

Orthopaedic injuries can happen anytime, not just in sports or after a fall!

Orthopaedic injuries are some of the most common types of injuries. Amongst these injuries are fractures, dislocations, sprains, and tears. 7 million broken bones are treated in the U.S. every year, and that’s only one type of many orthopaedic injuries!

These injuries can happen to anyone and at any time. While some groups are more prone to them, like athletes, they can happen to anyone. Injuries can occur after falls, while cycling, walking, or even just doing repetitive movements, like typing. Here are some injuries that might happen in day to day activities:
