Some of the common diseases treated by Orthopedicians are:

Arthritis- Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and swelling, which typically worsens with age.

Osteoarthritis of knee and Hip joint- Osteoarthritis simply means ‘wear and tear‘of the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, but the most commonly affected joints are Knee, Hip, Hands and Spine.

Rheumatoid arthritis- Rheumatoid arthritis or RA is a form of inflammatory polyarthritis that can lead to joint destruction, deformity, and loss of function. It is a type of autoimmune arthritis where your body’s immune system attacks its own tissue, most common is synovial lining of the joints.

Ligament injuries to the knee- Knee ligament injuries can be caused by Trauma or can be caused by sports injuries. ACL is one of the most common ligaments to be injured. Others include Meniscal tears, MCL tear and PCL injury.

Fractures- A fracture is a broken bone. It can range from a thin crack to a complete break.  Most fractures happen when a bone is impacted by more force or pressure than it can support.


1) Trauma (falls, accidents) 

2) Overuse (stress fractures)

3) Diseases that Weaken bones like osteoporosis and malignancy. 


1) Pain

2) Swelling

3) Deformity

4) Bruising

5) Bleeding

6) Limping

Osteoporosis- Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by decreased density of normally mineralized bone. The reduced density impairs the mechanical strength of the bone, thus making it more vulnerable to fracture.

Rotator cuff tear- A Rotator cuff tear is a rip in the group of four muscles and tendons that stabilize your shoulder joint and let you lift and rotate your arms.


Shoulder pain

Trouble raising your arm

Weakness in your shoulder

Clicking or Popping

Lateral epicondylitis- Lateral Epicondylitis also called as Tennis elbow is an overuse injury that may be associated with playing racket sports. Tennis elbow involves inflammation of the tendons on the outside of the elbow caused by small tears. Tennis elbow causes pain and may be associated with a weak grip. Rest and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications can help alleviate tennis elbow symptoms. Wearing a special brace on the forearm may help decrease pressure on the sore area. Physical therapy may be helpful. Steroid injections can decrease inflammation. Surgery may be an option for tennis elbow when other treatments have failed.

Carpal tunnel syndrome- Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the Median nerve at the level of the wrist.

Symptoms include Numbness, tingling, burning and pain primarily in the thumb, index and middle fingers.

Treatment includes splintage, Anti-inflammatory medications and in some cases surgical decompression.

Low back pain- Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work, and it is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Most people have back pain at least once.

  • Muscle or ligament strain. Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement can strain back muscles and spinal ligaments. If you're in poor physical condition, constant strain on your back can cause painful muscle spasms.
  • Bulging or ruptured discs. Disks act as cushions between the bones (vertebrae) in your spine. The soft material inside a disk can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve. However, one can have a bulging or ruptured disc without back pain. 
  • Arthritis. Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. In some cases, arthritis in the spine can lead to a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots, a condition called spinal canal stenosis.
  • Skeletal irregularities. A condition in which your spine curves to the side (scoliosis) also can lead to back pain.
  • Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the leading cause of back pain in elderly people. The vertebrae can develop compression fractures if your bones become porous and brittle.
  • Muscle ache
  • Shooting or stabbing pain in the back
  • Pain that radiates down your leg
  • Pain that worsens with bending, lifting, standing or walking
  • weakness, numbness or tingling in one or both legs
  • bowel or bladder problems
  • back pain accompanied by fever and unexplained weight loss
Neck pain-

Neck pain is very common and most of us will have it at some point in our lives.


  • Muscle strains: Overuse or improper posture such as too many hours hunched over your computer or smartphone, often triggers muscle strains. Eg Trapezeitis.
  • Worn joints: Just like the other joints in your body, your neck joints tend to wear down with age. Osteoarthritis causes the cushions (cartilage) between your bones (vertebrae) to deteriorate. Your body then forms bone spurs that affect joint motion and causes pain.
  • Nerve compression: Herniated discs or bone spurs in the vertebrae of your neck can press on the nerves branching out from the spinal cord.
  • Injuries: Road traffic accidents often result in whiplash injury, which occurs when the head is jerked backward and then forward, straining the soft tissues of the neck.
  • Diseases: Certain diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis or cancer, can cause neck pain.
  • Pain that's often worsened by holding your head in one place for long periods, such as when driving or working on a computer
  • Muscle tightness and spasms
  • Decreased ability to move your head
  • Headache
  • Tingling and numbness
Foot and Ankle pain-

Common causes include-




Achilles tendinitis

Plantar fasciitis
