Orthopaedics is a branch of medicine that is concerned with the correction of deformities or functional impairments of skeletal system, particularly the spine and its associated structure, ligaments and muscles. Disorders are ailments, injuries or diseases that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulder, torn cartilages, foot pain, fibromyalgia etc.
This open access peer review journal publishes original articles, reviews, case reports in the fields of clinical and experimental orthopaedics. It covers disease conditions related to musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, spinal disorders and injuries, infections, congenital disorders, and tumors.
The purpose of the journal is to contribute to the advanced treatment and care of orthopaedic disorders by providing clinicians and researchers with an educational forum in which to disseminate their personal experience and novel treatments to a wide readership and by reviewing interesting, rare cases encountered by colleagues all over the world, from whom contributions are welcomed.
All the contributors are welcomed to publish high quality clinical, and laboratory research as case series, reviews, guidelines, techniques, and practices. Manuscripts that mitigate social stigma, and offers emotional support to the patients undergoing psychological stress and strain are solicited.
Author may submit their manuscripts through an e-mail attachment at [email protected]
Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are common conditions that cause pain, swelling, and limited movement. They affect joints and connective tissues around the body. Arthritis means inflammation of a joint. A joint is where two or more bones meet. There are more than 100 different arthritis diseases. Rheumatic diseases include any condition that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling in joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or bones. Arthritis is usually chronic, which means that it is ongoing

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain in muscles and soft tissues all over the body. It is an ongoing (chronic) condition. It can affect your neck, shoulders, back, chest, hips, buttocks, arms, and legs. The cause is unknown. Researchers think there may be a link with sleep problems and stress. It may also be linked to immune, endocrine, or biochemical problems.
Kyphosis is defined as a curvature of the spine measuring 50 degrees or greater on an X-ray, a diagnostic test that uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs onto film. The normal spine can bend from 20 to 45 degrees of curvature in the upper back area. Kyphosis is a type of spinal deformity
Your body regularly replaces the components of your bones. When those components are lost too rapidly or not replenished quickly enough (or both), osteoporosis occurs. Osteoporosis happens once bone loss exceeds bone formation, leading to low mass, microarchitectural abnormalities.
Paget disease of the bone is a chronic bone disorder. It causes bones to become enlarged and deformed. Bone may become dense, but fragile, because of excessive breakdown and deformation of bone. The disease is the most common bone disorder after osteoporosis in adults older than age 50. The exact cause of Paget disease of the bone is unknown. It may be due to a slow viral infection of bone. Genetics may also play a significant role.
Tennis elbow is a common yet sometimes complex musculoskeletal condition affecting many patients treated by physical therapists. The purpose of this article is to review the anatomy, clinical examination, differential diagnosis, conservative care, and surgical treatment for tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis. Particular attention is given to determining the precise pathological cause of lateral epicondylitis, with consideration of intrinsic and extrinsic factors associated with this condition
