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.
Foot And Ankle
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.
