Most people assume that joint pain and discomfort are just a part of aging; however, aches and pains that affect your day-to-day life should not become the norm. If you are dealing with arthritis or other problems that impact your mobility and everyday functionality, it might just be time to visit Dr. Michael Klassen, orthopedic surgeon.
When Should I Turn to an Orthopedic Expert?
If you are dealing with musculoskeletal issues, it might be a good idea to talk to an orthopedic physician to help determine your symptoms' cause. While we are experts in performing advanced orthopedic surgeries, there is much more that we can do besides orthopedic surgery. Dr. Klassen can prevent, diagnose and treat various conditions that affect the tendons, muscles, ligaments, bones, nerves and joints. If you are having trouble moving around without pain, swelling or discomfort, call us.
When Should I Schedule an Orthopedic Consultation?
It isn’t always easy to know when to turn to your family physician or whether you need to turn to a specialist for care. When talking to your doctor about your symptoms, you may realize that an orthopedic expert could better manage your symptoms and improve your condition. If you are dealing with joint swelling or pain, achy joints or arthritis, we can help. Suppose you’ve also tried other treatments to alleviate joint pain, but they’ve been unsuccessful. In that case, this is also an excellent time to schedule a consultation with Dr. Klassen to discuss more effective treatment options.
Is Orthopedic Surgery Right for Me?
In some cases, Dr. Klassen may recommend surgery. This is common for individuals who’ve tried just about every nonsurgical orthopedic treatment under the sun and still aren’t experiencing relief from their symptoms. If you’ve discussed your options with us and we’ve determined that orthopedic surgery is the best option for you, you are in safe hands with Dr. Klassen and his team. We can perform your surgery and provide post-surgical rehabilitation and physical therapy to retrain the muscles and strengthen your musculoskeletal system to restore mobility and make day-to-day functions easier.
