It’s not always clear when to go to the doctor. Some of us are quick to call the doctor for minor aches and sprains; others try and tough out a serious injury that requires more immediate medical attention.
You should see a doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:
Your injury is preventing you from completing daily activities
You’re experiencing pain that has not lessened over several days
You have swelling or bruising around a joint
You do not have a normal range of motion
Your pain is worse at night
You show signs of infection like fever, redness, or inflammation
You can contact our office at (315) 261-5850 to make an appointment. If you have a serious injury, go to the emergency room immediately.
