This system consists of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. The combination of these organs allows a person to move and perform their activities.

Many people think that an orthopedist is just an orthopedic surgeon; Or it only deals with pain with bone origin. But many of the pains that are felt in the hands and feet are caused by problems in the non-skeletal tissues of the body. For example, tendons are an important cause of limb pain. During exercise and sport activities and even daily activities, these tendons can stretch, causing inflammation and pain. The nerves in the limbs can be another source of pain. These nerves can be stretched and stimulated by the pressure of adjacent tissues on them, and this stimulation causes pain.
