Bone doctor – treatment by an orthopedist: More and more Poles complain about pain in the bones, spine, joints, accidents. There are dramatic situations when a child is born with serious defects of the locomotor system and needs long-term specialist treatment – surgery and rehabilitation. You don’t have to try hard to feel problems with the musculoskeletal system: an ankle sprain, standing for many hours or sitting at the computer is enough.

Common ailments

If a referral to an orthopedist was not needed, and doctors of this specialization would see doctors in every district clinic on the basis of a contract with the National Health Fund, then the number of their patients would be comparable to the number of patients waiting for a consultation with a family doctor/internist. Bone injuries, fractures, dislocations, pain in the back, neck, arms and legs are common. Many people have congenital defects of the musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, many people still report to the orthopedist very late – only when the pain makes life difficult or when they observe difficulties with movement. Meanwhile, an early visit to the orthopedist Szczecincan prevent many unpleasant effects of orthopedic diseases. The problem is the limited availability of orthopedic treatment, because you have to wait many months for an appointment with a specialist under the National Health Fund, and a private orthopedic consultation is not cheap.
