Joint pain can be caused by arthritis, a sports condition, a traumatic injury, a degenerative condition or simple wear and tear. Regardless of the cause, if simple movements are painful and limiting, Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic provides many treatment options — both surgical and non-surgical — to help you find relief.
Joints refer to the area where two or more bones meet. While there are different kinds of joints all over our bodies, the ones most commonly used and more easily damaged are those in the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Joint damage is so common because of the frequent pressure applied to our joints throughout our lives. However, joint disorders such as arthritis and fractures do not necessarily result in lifelong pain. Depending on the severity of the joint damage, TOC’s trained and experienced orthopedic surgeons will help you find the solution to eliminate pain and improve your quality of life.
Joint reconstruction ranges from minor repairs to the damaged joint to total joint replacement. These treatment options can offer temporary pain relief or permanent solutions to joint disorders. Depending on the severity of the joint damage, TOC’s trained and experienced orthopedic surgeons will help you find the solution to eliminate pain and improve your quality of life.
