A myriad of musculoskeletal conditions afflicts a vast number of the world's population from birth to death. Countless pathological diseases and traumatic injuries (acute and chronic) contribute to different human disabilities, causing a tremendous financial toll on the economy of healthcare. The medical field is continually searching for novel ways to combat orthopedically related conditions. The immediate goal is the restoration of anatomy then ultimately return of function in hopes of enhancing quality if not the quantity of life. Traditional methods involve surgical correction/reconstruction of skeletal deformities from fractures/soft tissue damage/ruptures or replacement/resection of degenerated joints. Modern research is currently concentrating on innovative procedures to replenish/restore the human body close to its original/natural state [1, 2].

Devices which are used in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and diseases.
The planned and carefully managed manual movement of the musculoskeletal system, extremities, and spine to produce increased motion. The term is sometimes used to denote a precise sequence of movements of a joint to determine the presence of disease or to reduce a dislocation. In the case of fractures, orthopedic manipulation can produce better position and alignment of the fracture. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p264)
