When should I see an orthopedic specialist?

If you suffer from joint pain, pulled tendons or strained muscles, medication is not the only answer.


Affinity Orthopedics and Sports Medicine clinicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal and joint pain.

The expert orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists understand the intricate relationships that exist between the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves and muscles in your body. When one part is injured or affected by illness, movement can be challenging and painful.

You may benefit from an appointment with an orthopedic expert on the Affinity team, if:

  • Your primary care clinician suggests you see an orthopedic specialist for your joint pain
  • You experience pain that does not diminish two days after an injury
  • The pain in your hips and knees seems to be getting worse when you stand up or walk
  • You have severe joint pain that interferes with walking, standing or carrying objects
  • You have arthritis in your knee or hip
  • You have had low-back pain for two weeks or longer
  • Joint pain keeps you awake at night
  • You notice swelling, heat and redness near your joint
  • Your joint looks deformed

Our team of specialists will provide the most conservative and comprehensive treatment to relieve your pain and get you back in action.
