Hip And Knee

“Hip and knee pain orthopedic care focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the hip and knee joints, including arthritis, ligament injuries, and overuse syndromes, through a combination of conservative measures such as physical therapy, medication, injections, and surgical options such as joint replacement or arthroscopy.”

Hip:

Hip pain can impact independent mobility and can lead to difficulty with walking, climbing stairs or standing for prolonged periods of time, contributing to a more sedentary lifestyle.

  • Bursitis/Arthritis/Tendonitis: Inflammation of the bursae, arthritis in the hip joint, or inflammation of the hip tendons, causing pain and stiffness.
  • Labral Tear: Damage to the cartilage (labrum) lining the hip socket, often resulting from trauma or repetitive motions! 

Knee:

Whether knee pain occurs suddenly because of trauma or gradually due to repetitive stress and degeneration, it also presents as instability, weakness that worsens with weight-bearing activities.

  • ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries often occur during activities that involve sudden stops, changes in direction, or direct impact to the knee. Common mechanisms of injury include twisting the knee while the foot is planted, hyperextension of the knee, or a direct blow to the knee from the side.
    • Symptoms of an ACL injury often include a popping sensation at the time of injury, immediate swelling, severe pain, instability or giving way of the knee, and difficulty bearing weight.

      The ACL is located inside the knee joint and runs diagonally from the back of the femur (thighbone) to the front of the tibia (shinbone). It helps stabilize the knee and prevent excessive forward movement of the tibia relative to the femur.

  • MCL (medial collateral ligament) injuries typically result from a direct impact to the outer side of the knee or a force that causes the knee to bend inward. This can occur during sports such as football or soccer when the knee is struck from the outside, or from a sudden twist or pivot movement.
    • The MCL is located on the inner side of the knee joint and extends from the end of the femur to the top of the tibia. It provides stability to the inner aspect of the knee and helps prevent excessive sideways (valgus) movement. MCL

    • Symptoms of an MCL injury may include pain and tenderness along the inner side of the knee, swelling, stiffness, and instability when attempting to move the knee sideways.
