Injuries happen all the time, and most injuries do not require medical treatment. Minor injuries like bumps and bruises happen on a daily basis, and often we do not even notice them. Orthopedic doctors don't just set broken bones and fractures. There are several sub-groups that fall in the orthopedics realm. Overuse and ligament damage in athletes are common injuries that orthopedic doctors treat, as well as physical deformities. If you have an injury due to overuse or deformity that needs to be corrected, an orthopedic specialist can help you.
