People are often suggested to go through a routine full body checkup once every three to six months to get updates on what is going on with their bodies. While most people prefer to visit doctors due to some injury, some prefer to visit them when they start experiencing knee pain that hinders their daily activities like walking, climbing stairs, especially in their old age.

One of the most important parts of our body is the bones. They make up our spinal cord, responsible for protecting our basic functioning nerves, and also are responsible for our movements. If bone health suffers from some abnormalities, it can deteriorate a person's quality of life significantly. So, when to see an orthopedist? We have listed below the most common instances.

Signs that you might need to Visit an Orthopedist

There might be a number of reasons why you might need to check in with an orthopedist or need a referral to the best orthopedic surgeon in India. Given below are some common reasons that can make you take a trip to them.

1. Arthritis

Arthritis is an umbrella term that includes a variety of joint pain or diseases. It includes over 100 types of related conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, metabolic arthritis, infectious arthritis, etc. The symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion for joints.

2. Spinal Health

Spinal health falls under the expertise of an orthopedist as well. Any conditions related to the spine, like pain near it or injuries near the spine, will need you to get assistance from an orthopedist or surgeon that too in case of chronic conditions. Scoliosis, a spine curvature condition, is a common spinal health problem.

3. Sports injuries

Playing sports may warrant a visit to the orthopedist in case of severe injuries that may adversely affect bones. Sports injuries may include fractures or breaks seeking therapy or replacements like joint replacement.

4. Bone Fractures

Fractures may be caused by a number of reasons like falling or accidents. While some aren't serious enough, some fractures may require the expertise of an orthopedist to ensure the underlying conditions are fixed.

5. Repetitive Strain Injuries

These injuries are common in sportsmen and similar field professionals for whom it is a part of their job. These repetitive injuries affect bones, ligaments, and joints and may cause long-term complications if left unattended.

6. Connective Tissue Conditions

Disorders like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Marfan affect the important tissues of the body and are also associated with increasing a person's likelihood to get fractured from slight exertion. For the long-term management of these conditions, you may seek consultation from an orthopedic surgeon.
