Thanks to Mercy's deep array of subspecialties, you can be certain that we'll connect you with the right specialist to address your issue, no matter what ails you. Think of us as your one-stop shop for everything related to orthopedic care and beyond, from initial diagnosis to treatment and recovery. 

Understanding the Musculoskeletal System

Whether you’ve had trouble bouncing back from a sports-related injury or need help managing aches and pains, it may be time to talk to a Mercy orthopedic specialist. An orthopedic physician specializes in treating conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. Your musculoskeletal system is the network of bones, muscles and tissues that frame your body, allowing it to move. It includes: 

  • Skeleton - supports your body weight and protects your organs
  • Muscles - enable you to move almost every part of your body to perform physical activities  
  • Joints - allow specialized movement where two bones connect, such as your shoulder, hip and knee 
  • Tendons - attach your muscles to your bones
  • Ligaments - attach your bones to other bones
  • Cartilage - covers the ends of many bones, allowing them to glide against each other
