When Should I See an Orthopedic Specialist?

Did you know there are hundreds of bones and joints in your body? When one of these quits working, it can cause a lot of discomfort. But, what are some key signs that the discomfort could be more serious?

We’ve listed some of the most common signs it is time to see a specialist.

  • You struggle to perform everyday activities: Some discomfort is common as you age but it should never prevent you from completing your daily activities, such as climbing stairs or walking your dog.
  • You suffer from chronic pain: Minor discomfort is one thing. But, if you’ve experienced any single pain for more than 12-weeks, it is often defined as chronic pain. Often times, a treatment plan can help with this.
  • You have a limited range of motion: Do you joints feel as though they are getting tighter and tighter? This limited range of motion may be signaling a joint disease such as arthritis. The earlier you see someone, the earlier you can create a treatment plan that can slow the progression of the disease.
  • You are unstable when walking or standing: If you are shaky or wobbly when conducting basic positions such as standing, walking, sitting down or standing up, there may be something wrong with your joints. We can help you understand what’s causing this and work on correcting it.

You have a soft tissue injury that is not improving: Examples of a soft tissue injury include a sprained ankle, twisted knee or busted wrist. If you are unsure you need to see someone, utilize the RICE method for two days to see if pain and swelling subsides. If it doesn’t, it may be more serious and time to schedule an appointment with a specialist as soon as possible.
