Expert Orthopedic Services
You may need orthopedic care for one of many reasons. It could be to treat a sports-related injury, an arthritic condition, or simply a problem that has developed over time due to wear and tear.
The team at Premier Podiatry & Orthopedics is here to comprehensively diagnose and treat patients for conditions throughout the body, and help you get back to enjoying life at your best. Our orthopedists work with more than just the feet and ankles!
What Does an Orthopedist Do?
Orthopedic doctors specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. In other words, if it pertains to the bones, muscles, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and joints, it is likely in an orthopedist’s wheelhouse.
Issues resolved with orthopedic care are often caused by physical trauma. However, problems can also develop because of structural abnormalities, and these can often be treated through orthopedic care as well.
When Should I See an Orthopedic Specialist?
An orthopedic specialist (such as our own Dr. Scott Fujii) may be recommended for a variety of reasons.
Some of the signs it’s time to contact our office and request an appointment for orthopedic care include:
- You have difficulty performing normal, everyday activities.
- Your pain is chronic – typically defined as lasting longer than 12 weeks.
- You have limited range of motion in any of your joints.
- You lack stability when standing or walking.
- A soft tissue injury you sustained is not improving.
This is not an exhaustive list of the reasons to pursue an orthopedic expert. If you have any questions or concerns you believe may need orthopedic care, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be glad to help you determine the next steps you should take.
