Pain while bearing weight on the hip or knee, swelling of the joint with fluid, and/or a decrease in range of motion are possible signs of the need for knee or hip replacement. These symptoms of joint degeneration are most commonly caused by osteoarthritis, the "wear and tear arthritis." Abnormalities of knee function from fractures of the knee, torn cartilage, and torn ligaments can also lead to degeneration of the hip joint, which occurs when the ball portion of the femur loses its blood supply due to fractures, dislocations or long-term cortisone treatment. Finally, mechanical abnormalities from fractures or childhood hip conditions may eventually lead to joint-replacement surgery.
Back pain, leg pain, neck pain…it's all in your head? Is there a correct way to sit, stand and walk? How long do you put up with the discomfort?

Millions of visits are made to physicians' offices each year because of foot and ankle problems, with over one million visits a year for ankle sprains. No one is immune from these injuries, but you can help reduce your injury risk by wearing appropriate foot wear and paying attention to the signals your body gives you regarding work or play.
Common foot problems can be evaluated best by an orthpaedic surgeon, practicing conservative treatment when possible and having access to state of the art treatment when necessary.
Orthotripsy is for those who have had heel pain from plantar faciitis for at least six months and who have tried other methods for treating their heel pain. Using the same concept as lithotripsy for kidney stones, the "shockwaves" at a lower intensity, promote increased circulation and healing. Results of the procedure may be seen immediately, significant results within three months.
