  • The severity of your pain
  • When your pain began
  • Your activity level
  • Your lifestyle

When to See an Orthopedic Specialist

Joint pain is common, so how do you know when it warrants a visit with an orthopedic specialist? If you have lasting pain that is keeping you from your normal activities or daily life, consider making an appointment.

Common reasons to see an orthopedic specialist include:

  • Arthritis in your elbow, hip, or knee
  • Limited range of motion
  • Muscle or joint pain that started after an accident or injury
  • Pain that lasts for months or years
  • Soft tissue injuries that are not healing on their own
  • Tingling or numbness in your hands
  • Trouble climbing stairs
  • Trouble walking or standing without discomfort or pain
  • Worsening hip or knee pain

Andalusia Health’s orthopedic specialists can evaluate and diagnose your concerns, offer treatment, and provide orthopedic surgery if needed.


Making a Diagnosis

The orthopedic doctors at Andalusia Health are specialists in diagnosing and treating joint pain. As part of your evaluation and diagnosis, we will consider:

  • A physical exam
  • The strength of your muscles
  • Your medical history
  • Your range of motion

As a result of the exam, your doctor may ask you to have an X-ray or an MRI. These tests will help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis. (If you have current X-rays, please bring them with you to your appointment.)

Orthopedic Treatment & Surgery: What to Expect

Andalusia Health offers many effective orthopedic treatment options, and we begin treatment with the least invasive methods. In more severe cases of joint pain, surgery may be recommended.

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique used to diagnose and treat joint problems. Andalusia Health’s orthopedic surgeons use highly specialized instruments inserted through incisions about half an inch in size to reconstruct joints.

Other patients may require full joint replacement surgery. In each case, our orthopedic surgeons perform surgical procedures to lessen pain, reduce recovery time, and allow you to regain the full use of the joint as soon as possible. A rehabilitation program will help you get back to functioning at your fullest potential following surgery.
