Reasons To See an Orthopedist

CONSIDER MAKING AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE ORTHOPEDIST AT PARKCHESTER MEDICAL IF YOU EXPERIENCE:

TINGLING IN FINGERS OR NUMB HANDS

A tingling sensation in one’s hands can be caused by many reasons. Sometimes, hands or fingers can even feel slightly numb. You may have heard of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

A minor wrist fracture that you might not even feel can cause this syndrome. Nerve damage can cause certain tingling sensations or numbness in your hands. Be sure to make an appointment with your Orthopedist at Parkchester Medical.

SHOULDER PAIN

If you often lift heavy weights, an occasional shoulder ache can be expected. However, if you do not and experience shoulder pain or joint discomfort, you might need to schedule a visit to the orthopedist at Parkchester Medical.

This may be a simple but annoying tendonitis, but discuss this and other physical discomforts with your physician.

PAIN FROM REPETITIVE MOTIONS

People who work physically stressful jobs and often engage in repetitive motions and movements for their daily chores may have increased stress on their muscles. This may result in unnoticed internal injuries as well. People working with machines producing lots of vibrations can also experience pains in different parts of the body.

DIFFICULTY IN CLIMBING THE STAIRS

This condition is not uncommon in elderly people. Joints in your hips and knees may begin to deteriorate with age.

Joint replacement surgery is very common today. Your orthopedist will specialize in certain joint replacement techniques and can offer the best guidance.

TWISTED ANKLES OR ANKLES SPRAINS

Twisted or rolled ankles are not uncommon. Uneven surfaces, or a mis-step off an uneven city curb, can cause an ankle to twist. Sprained ankles swell and bruise, and are painfulwhen weight bearing

Past ankle sprains and one’s natural bone shapecan lead to recurrent twisted ankles. Your orthopedist and physical therapist can work together to enhance healing and outcomes.
