If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the following conditions, call the office of Dr. Clint Morris at (830) 895-4466 for further evaluation.

  • – You have reason to believe your symptoms are getting worse. Do you have increased swelling or sharper pain? Do not wait until the pain is excruciating; call your doctor when your symptoms begin worsening.
  • – You experience discomfort when you are not moving (i.e., at night when you are trying to sleep, sitting behind a desk or watching tv at home). Even if you can still get around throughout the day, pain in the evening or when you are inactive is also a sign of injury and should be addressed.
  • – You cannot walk or bend your knees without experiencing pain. Your regular range of motion decreases, interpret this as a sign that something in your body is off and your knees may require medical attention.
  • – Your at-home treatment methods have not worked. Has the R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, and elevation) method not made a significant difference in your pain?
  • – Your knee condition is having a negative impact on your quality of life. Perhaps you have a knee injury that can be fully healed with non-surgical treatment or you have a chronic condition that must be carefully managed. Regardless of your specific case, a board certified Orthopedic surgeon can provide you with expert options, instructions and a plan of action to reduce your pain and help you get back to doing the things you love.
