We treat hip and knee problems of all kinds. We also help patients manage hip and knee pain and move more easily.
Causes of Hip and Knee Pain
Besides being the largest joints in our bodies, our hips and knees are some of the hardest working. After all, they must bear our weight, yet be flexible enough for activities like walking, squatting, and kneeling. Fortunately, our hips and knees are so well-designed for that kind of movement that activity helps keep them healthy.
However, there are things that can happen to our hips and knees that can cause pain and make movement difficult. The cartilage "cushion" in the hip or knee can also wear away as we age, causing pain and stiffness. This condition is known as osteoarthritis, and knee osteoarthritis alone affects up to one in five Americans over 45. Other conditions we treat include:
Abductor tendon tears.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries.
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
Fractures and dislocations.
Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries.
Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries.
Sprains and strains.
Luminis Health Orthopedics treats all these hip and knee conditions and more. We'll work jointly with you to lessen our pain and improve movement in your hip or knee.
