3 Signs You Should See an Orthopedic Doctor December 20, 2018

3 Signs You Should See an Orthopedic Doctor, Sublimity, Oregon

Orthopedic doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating various musculoskeletal disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, and osteoarthritis. These conditions can negatively impact the way your bones and joints function, limiting your mobility and decreasing your quality of life. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, here are some benefits that can be derived from seeing one of these experts.

Symptoms Which Should Be Brought Up to an Orthopedic Doctor

1. Frequent Pain

While minor aches here and there are usually nothing to be alarmed about, constant pain can affect your daily life. Whether located in your lower back, knees, or elsewhere, it can keep you from completing daily tasks and living life to the fullest. If it has been several weeks, don't wait any longer. Seek an orthopedic doctor to find the root cause of the problem.

2. Poor Range of Motion

orthopedicIf your joints feel tighter when you move around, it’s a cause for concern. A limited range of motion can result from several different conditions, like joint dislocation, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis, any of which can make it more difficult to walk, climb stairs, and even groom yourself.

3. Problems With Balance

If you frequently fall or often feel like you are about to, it’s time to get checked out, especially as the weather turns colder and more slippery. Falls can result in hip fractures and other serious injuries, so immediate intervention is necessary.
