  • actually you should probably see an Orthpaedic Surgeon. They may refer you to physical therapy and/or surgical interventions if necessary. If you have a health plan that does not require a referral than just go ahead and make an appointment with an Ortho in your area.GOOD LUCK- keep me posted with your progress.
