Q:

Why should I have a family doctor?

A:

It is best to have a family doctor so that you can work on developing a relationship with a care provider that knows your history and medical issues. If you end up going to different doctors every time you have a concern, you can imagine how disjointed your care can become, and this can actually lead to increased costs on the healthcare system. Even if you are a relatively healthy person, it is still a good idea to have a connection with a primary doctor.

Q:

What is phantom pain?

A:

Phantom pain typically is seen in people who have had a limb or part of a limb amputated. It can also affect women who have had a breast removed due to cancer. Basically, they are getting pain which feels like it is coming from the part of their body that is no longer there. The nerve endings at the amputation site continue to send signals to the brain to tell the brain the limb is in pain, even though it is no longer there.

Q:

How can I treat arthritis in my knee?

A:

If your arthritis is causing knee pain, you can work on some modifications to your activity and you may benefit from using a cane. Medication like anti-inflammatories or pain medication can be used, however you should speak with your doctor if you are getting into a longer term situation with these over-the-counter drugs.
