Hips and knees are essential to support the weight of our body during standing, walking and running activities, hence causing them to be especially susceptible to injury and arthritis.
Hip and knee problems are some of the most common reasons patients visit Providence Orthopaedics. Hip function is often compromised by arthritis, fracture, osteoporosis, or deformity. Knees are susceptible to ACL and other ligament tears, fractures, trauma, sprains/strains and arthritis. Whether caused by injury or degeneration, hip and knee pain dramatically affects our ability to live a full and active lifestyle.
Hip & Knee Pain Treatment
Treatment for knee and hip pain is aimed at the underlying cause. Assessment would include a consultation with our specialist with a physical examination aimed at getting a diagnosis of the possible causes. To obtain a definitive diagnosis further investigations such as x-rays, ultrasound or MRI scan is required. Once the diagnosis is established, a definitive treatment plan would be discussed and the treatments could range from physiotherapy, injections or possibly even surgery.
