Why Should You See An Orthopedist?

It is the job of the orthopedic doctor to get their patients up and moving again, enjoying pain-free activities, and a higher quality of life. If you are considering visiting an orthopedist, choose the trusted Nassau County Orthopedist Dr. Stanislav Avshalumov at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation.

Pain that requires an orthopedist

Orthopedists can offer a variety of treatments and medical care ranging from non-invasive to major reconstructions. How do you know if visiting an orthopedic surgeon is right for you? If you suffer from muscle, joint, or tendon pain, consulting with a medical expert is advised as opposed to relying on medication. Especially if you experience discomfort that interrupts your daily life, visiting a Nassau County Orthopedist could alleviate your pain.

Arthritis and tendon injuries are typical reasons to visit an orthopedist. Treatment is contingent on the intensity of your pain and how far the problem has advanced. Another common treatment option is cortisone therapy: injections of cortisone into the affected area can help reduce inflammation, aiding in the body’s natural healing process. Some doctors recommend therapeutic exercises and physical therapy in conjunction with injection therapy.

In addition to arthritis, here are some other common reasons to see an orthopedic surgeon:

  • Swelling or bruising around a particular joint
  • Difficulty straightening the spine
  • Musculoskeletal deformity
  • Prolonged discomfort in joints, tendons, or muscles
  • Any significant or unusual changes to the way your musculoskeletal system works

What They Treat

Treating the pain in your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints can be quite simple.  Some orthopedic surgeons will recommend different types of treatments but it truly depends on the person and the type of problem they are experiencing.  Some of the treatments that orthopedic surgeons offer include:

  • Arthroscopy – using a small camera, they can insert and diagnose what the problem is in between the ligaments.
  • Fusion – when bones are grafted together to make a single bone solid and allow for recovery.
  • Soft tissue repair – mending ligaments or tendons
  • Joint replacement – taking out a joint that has been severely damaged and replaced with a prosthetic.
  • Osteotomy – fixing bone deformities by aligning and cutting the bones.

Treating your problems with surgery may be the best option for you unless your orthopedist recommends something else for you.
