The way orthopedists treat patients has been greatly improved by technology, but some of the ideas that still inform the field today were developed many centuries ago. For example, during the Middle Ages, soldiers with broken bones were treated with bandages dried in horse blood to serve as a splint, albeit an unsanitary one. The original term “orthopedics,” meant the correcting of musculoskeletal deformities in children. In the mid-1700s, many of the treatments orthopedists prescribe to their patients nowadays such as, exercise, manipulation (now known as physical therapy) and splinting/bracing, were prescribed to treat deformities in children. Starting in the late 1800s, the field of orthopedics was expanded to include adult ailments that go far beyond childhood deformities. Most of the adults you know who have been to an orthopedist have done so for reasons that reach far beyond problems that children can be afflicted with.
