Common Injuries As We Age – Michael B. Cannone, D.O.

If they’re doing that and their symptoms persist after a week, then they should be seen.
Or if they’re losing motion in the joint whether it be a knee or a shoulder, if the knee’s locked up, they can’t straighten it out, they should come in sooner.
