When Is It Time to See a Doctor for Your Arthritis?
The moment you begin experiencing joint pain and other nagging symptoms that might be associated with arthritis, how do you know when it is time to see the doctor? At Enhance Orthopedic Surgery, LLC, we understand how debilitating the pain can be. Our Anchorage arthritis care treatment might be able to help you determine the right course of action and alleviate some of the symptoms of arthritis or osteoarthritis.
Some of the symptoms you should watch out for:
- Your joints feel tender or stiff
- You notice stiffness and swelling, in addition to pain in the joints
- You see redness in the joints, or if the joints feel warm
- You are having difficulty moving the joint and engaging in everyday activities
- You have been experiencing ongoing joint pain, at least for more than three days straight
- You have suffered from these symptoms off and on for at least one month
It is important to remember that arthritis is not simply one type of ailment, but encompasses a broad range of medical conditions. For example, arthritis and osteoporosis are related, but both share many symptoms and can be mistaken for one another. That is why it is so important to have a doctor evaluate your symptoms.
Dr. Hightower can discuss your concerns about your arthritis pain with you and find a course of treatment that can stop it from worsening, as well as hopefully prevent other conditions from developing. Whether you need arthritis treatment for lower back pain, your hips, or other joints, we encourage you to give our Anchorage arthritis care treatment team a call today so that we can help you get back on track and live life to the fullest.
