When to See an Orthopedic Physician September 6, 2019

When to See an Orthopedic Physician, Mill City, Oregon

It’s an all too common problem. You feel an ache or pain, and pretend that it’s nothing until the problem worsens and you need specialized care. To practice better health and wellness, listen to your body and seek treatment for preventative care before the problem with any bone or joint pain worsens. An orthopedic physician can help treat such pain, including chronic joint or bone pain, arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

2  Times to See an Orthopedic Physician 

1. Bone or Joint Pain 

If bone or joint pain affects how you live your life day-to-day, such as experiencing discomfort on a jog or even cleaning the house, this is cause for concern. Your habitual routine should not include pain from bones and joints. Furthermore, if you are undergoing pain that lasts longer than 12 weeks, you may have chronic pain and should see an orthopedist immediately. 

2. Soft Tissue Injuries 

If you’ve recently undergone a soft tissue injury, including a sprained wrist, twisted ankle, or knee, stay off of your feet for at least two days and observe the pain. If there is no improvement, you shouldn’t risk having the problem worsen and should seek help from your local orthopedic professional. 


Whatever joint or bone pain you’re experiencing, the orthopedic specialists at Santiam Hospital can help. Servicing the Mid-Willamette Valley area, this hospital offers short wait times for emergency room services in the comfort of an intimate and personal environment. Their team of orthopedic physicians are both experienced and knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable when discussing your specific bone or joint discomfort. Schedule a visit by calling them at (503) 769-2175, or visit them online for more information.
