Sure Signs That You Need to Visit an Orthopedic Surgeon Right Away

Sometimes we injure ourselves by accident, and other times our job requires us to work in repetitive motions every day. In both instances, our muscles, tendons and bones can be placed under tremendous stress and become vulnerable to injury.

Our musculoskeletal systems are the foundation of mobility and provide our overall stability and support. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that musculoskeletal problems have been consistently ranking as one of the top three reasons you need to visit a doctor. 

Orthopedic surgeons are doctors who specialize in the field of the musculoskeletal system, such as the joints, ligaments, muscles, and bones, which provide our body with the mobility we need to move every day. They treat our physical injuries- but knowing when their service is needed can be difficult to tell.

Sometimes we come across a major injury that can be healed with basic first aid treatment- but there are also times when small injuries lead to long-term pain. This is why we will be providing you with a few tips to understand the signs that help you decide whether you should visit an orthopedic surgeon or not.

Pain in the Shoulder for No Reason

When we lift heavy objects, we can often feel soreness in our shoulders. However, if you haven’t been lifting any weights but still feel the pain, then we believe it is high time for you to visit an orthopedic; otherwise, the shoulder joints will get tender overnight and increase the pain exponentially.

This is usually a sign of having tendonitis, which can occur from overusing a limb or an injury from the past. It is also possible that you might be experiencing similar pain in your heels, wrist, or elbow, and the cause might also be from aging. Since there are several possibilities, an orthopedic surgeon will be able to diagnose the condition much more efficiently.

Pain from Repetitive Movement

This usually occurs in people who have physically demanding jobs that require them to engage in constant repetitive actions for their daily work. Hence, the muscles become exposed to excessive tension, which can cause unnoticed injuries in the body.

This can lead to permanent issues in your body, so it’s always best to visit an orthopedic surgeon to find out the problem before the pain grows in multiple parts of your body.

It is also important to make sure that you are getting treated by an experienced doctor. The more years they have in the medical field, the more likely they are to know about diverse body pains and their solutions. For example, Dr. Vonda Wright, an esteemed American double board-certified orthopedic surgeon and globally recognized authority regarding mobility and active aging.

Currently serving as the inaugural Chief of Orthopedic Sports Medicine for Northside Health System Atlanta, her specialty lies in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery of the hip, knee, and shoulder areas. She is also a contributor to various academic societies and speaks on a worldwide platform, advocating about aging, longevity, resilience, women’s health, and how to maximize their performance in business.

The more experience an orthopedic surgeon has, the easier it becomes to put your faith in them and trust them to find the perfect solution for your growing pains.
