this might sound like a really stupid question but here goes:

if there wasnt any specialists in the Civil War times where did people go for specific problems?

i ask this because, over the weekend i tore the tendons in my right arm and against my protests my mom is making me go see a orthopedist because it is slightly swollen and it hurts a bit but im ok i dont think i need to go to a doctor (if it wasnt for her id never go)

but it got me wondering, if you tore something like that back then what could the doctor do for you? would you even go to the doctor over ever little thing like we do now??
