Overview of a general orthopedic practice. Discussion.
Records from a 36-year general orthopedic practice were analyzed for patient demographics and clinical findings.
Results showed that low back pain was the most frequent chief complaint and that the majority of the cases were treated nonsurgically in the office.
A history of trauma was present in 58.8% of cases, and job-related injuries were present in 10.6% of cases.
The most frequent diagnoses are reported for all cases and for some subgroups.
