Not an ortho...

But do some research on your own and ask your son what he thinks.

I spent years dealing with ankle issues and was always referred to physical therapists. I knew that wasn't the answer. I just knew my ankle. It wasn't until I found a surgeon who told me "Oh, I can fix that" that I knew I had my guy.

I'm not saying that surgery is the answer. But go with your instincts and trust in your son's evaluation of his own body. He's an athlete, he should know it better than anyone.
