Area of Interest

Muscle & Joint

A joint is where the ends of two bones meet. They allow movement from side to side, up and down, and in rotation. A special lining covering the ends of bones, called cartilage stops the bones from rubbing together and allows easy, smooth movement. If cartilage becomes worn down, the bones rub together during movement, causing pain. Injury to the joints can cause pain in the legs, lower back, groin, buttocks, knees, shoulders, and hips. Pain may occur from injury, simple wear and tear or an inflammatory disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Our care can encompass injuries to joints such as knee, elbow, shoulder, wrist, ankle, as well as conditions like tennis elbow, “wear and tear”, carpal tunnel, sports related injuries including muscle sprain/strains, osteoarthritis, ACL, tendonitis, quick recovery, tingling, pins & needles, and pinched nerves.
