Orthopedic complaints are an extremely common complaint seen in practice for every nurse practitioner. Regardless of if you own and operate your own practice or work at an urgent care, primary care office, or in the emergency department, you see these patients! I often times see orthopedic complaints at my men’s health practice, and I am happy I obtained the knowledge to treat these patients vs. just referring them out. Not only does this increase my practices revenue, put it improves patient outcomes, increases patient satisfaction, and is extremely convenient for the patient.
So, it doesn’t matter if you operate an aesthetics practice, weight loss center, primary care office, or any type of niche practice type, you should be able to evaluate and treat basic orthopedic complaints. Not only will this make you a more well-rounded nurse practitioner, but it also will also make your patients love your practice even more!
Practically every single person on this planet will suffer from some sort of musculoskeletal issue at some point in their life, therefore it is critical that you understand how to effectively evaluate and treat those problems.
