Frequently Asked Questions

Orthopedics encompasses skeletal system diagnosis and treatment, addressing a wide range of conditions and injuries. Ahead of your orthopedic appointment, it's common to have questions. We aim to ease your concerns by offering comprehensive information.

At Hunt Regional Medical Center, our adept orthopedic specialists employ cutting-edge techniques and technology to ensure your comfort while diagnosing and treating skeletal diseases. Browse our FAQs for any uncertainties. We're here to assist you.

Most people see an orthopedic specialist because of knee injuries (more than 18 million physician visits in 2010), back pain (more than 13 million), or shoulder injuries (more than 11 million).

Your physician will be able to conduct tests such as X-Rays or bone scans to determine for certain if you have a sprain or a fracture. Keep in mind that a sprain is an injury to the ligaments (tissues that connect your bones), whereas a fracture is an injury to your bone. Sprains heal with time and rest, but a fracture will require some type of treatment (splint, cast, crutches, wheelchair and/or surgery).

Arthritis symptoms may vary depending on which type you have. However, the most common arthritis symptoms include pain, stiffness, swelling, redness and decreased range of motion. Your doctor can perform laboratory tests to determine if you do in fact have arthritis. Learn more about our arthritis services.

Generally, no. This depends on which type of diagnostic procedure you are undergoing, but most orthopedic injuries or conditions require the use of imaging and radiology tests like X-rays, bone scans or other exams, which are painless. When diagnosing arthritis, a doctor may perform minimally invasive laboratory tests that require a sample of joint fluid, however this should not be a severely painful procedure. They may also use computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound, which are not invasive or painful.

Depending on the type of diagnostic imaging procedure, these exams are generally safe for pregnant women. According to the American College of Radiology, no single diagnostic X-ray results in radiation exposure enough to threaten the health of the developing embryo or fetus. However, your doctor can work with you to determine the safest diagnostic imaging method.

If you have an appointment scheduled with an orthopedic specialist, be sure to come prepared with your insurance card, a photo ID, list of current medications, co-payment (if applicable) and any questions you may have to ask your specialist. Sometimes it’s helpful to bring a written list of questions you have so you don’t forget any during the appointment. Additionally, check with the location to see if there is paperwork you can fill out in advance of your appointment to speed up the process. If for any reason you cannot keep your orthopedic appointment, please notify your doctor.

Your doctor will be able to fully answer this question after your diagnosis and treatment.
