What is Orthopedic OCD

Othopedic OCD is a Disorder of the bones in joints. The disorder causes severe pain and causes the joints to catch. The disorder is caused by blood not reaching the bone. The disorder is most common in the knees and ankles but can occur in other joints of the body. The disorder has no treatment that always works but there are many treatment options available. These include getting a cast in order to try to heal the bone. If that doesn't work there is also an option of surgery where the doctor will drill through the bone into the marrow to try to get the bone to heal.
