The first thing you should do is visit an orthopedic care facility such as Green Sports Medicine to ensure quick and effective treatment.
Orthopaedic medicine is a specialty focusing on the diagnosis, correction, prevention and treatment of injuries or disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic doctors address conditions related to the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons in the body.
As the body’s support system, bones need to stay healthy and strong. Regular exercise is important to maintain bone health. Exercise will also help you avoid orthopaedic issues in the future. Diet and nutrition are also critical to orthopaedic health. A regular intake of calcium and vitamin D in your diet will contribute to strong, healthy bones. Minimizing caffeine and alcohol consumption supports healthy bones and joints, as does avoiding smoking.
Acute pain is a normal physiological response to injury--think of the shock of pain you feel when you get a cut or burn yourself while cooking. Acute pain arises quickly, is very intense, and subsides completely over a short period of time. Most acute pain should go away by three months. If acute pain isn’t properly treated, it can develop into chronic pain - pain that persists for longer than three months. Chronic pain occurs when pain signals in the brain continue firing long after recovery from illness or injury. One of the biggest causes of chronic pain is damage to peripheral nerves after an initial injury. Even after the injury heals, the damaged nerves continue to receive and send out pain signals into the body.
For acute pain, especially that arises without any visible or known physical trauma you should visit orthopaedic care or ER immediately. For chronic pain, especially after an injury, any physical stress (such as surgery, covid or serious illness) or any pain that lasts longer than three months you should seek out an orthopedic or injury care specialist like Dr. Green. Ignoring persistent pain can cause it to get worse, and may make treatment more difficult.
