Thousands of people all over the UAE suffer from orthopaedic problems. It is a global health issue that limits the ability of patients to live a free and active life. Unless care is taken to lessen its impact, bone and joint conditions can afflict people for a lifetime. Disorders include ailments and injuries that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulders, torn cartilages, foot pain and fibromyalgia among other issues.
Similarly problems and injuries in the muscles, ligaments and joints like ankle sprain, groin pull, hamstring strain, shin splints, knee injuries like ACL tear, patellofemoral syndrome - injury resulting from the repetitive movement of your knee cap against thigh bone and tennis elbow are quite commonplace in the UAE.
Luckily the UAE has many orthopaedic care centres and specialised hospitals and clinics that ensure expert diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for adults and children with bone, joint or connective tissue disorders. Highly qualified expert doctors deliver personalised care, focused on complete individual and specific needs. Several hospitals have state-of-the-art rehabilitation centres and qualified podiatrists also.
Pertinently, orthopaedic pain or injury must not be ignored. If you experience any bone pain or discomfort the ideal thing to do is to approach one of the orthopaedic clinics in the UAE, which have the necessary expertise to provide comprehensive treatment. There are several reputed clinics and hospitals in the country that offer a wide range of such services.
Apart from recommending exercises that aid in the rehabilitation and prevention of bone and joint pain, experts help in core strengthening too.

At an individual level, orthopaedic problems can be reduced if good care is taken. Since most of us spend a large part of our daily lives in offices, our workplaces need to be safe.
