Frequently Asked Questions
It’s important to be as informed as possible when selecting a doctor for your treatments. Below we’ve provided some commonly asked questions, but if you have any specific questions feel free to contact us.
Q. When should I see a doctor about pain?
Generally the pain will continue to worsen if you ignore it. However, it all depends on the type of pain you’re experiencing. If it’s pain from minor injuries, and it isn’t swollen or making it difficult to put weight on it, then you can likely treat it at home with rest, ice, and heat. If the pain persists after a week or if it becomes chronic, then make an appointment because these could be signs of something more serious.
Q. How soon can I return to physical activities after surgery?
Recovery times can vary depending on which treatment you receive. That being said, AZBSC Spine & Orthopedics specializes in minimally invasive treatments to get you back to the activities you love as soon as possible.
