The hip and knee are joints of the lower body that support the upper body. They move and articulate in specific ways allowing for activities such as walking, running and dancing. Occasionally these joints can be injured by sprains, contusions from falls, or just from wear and tear of everyday life.

The Center for Bone and Joint Care takes care of these joints with full physical evaluation, diagnostic studies including in-office x-rays and ordering MRIs or bone scans if warranted. Patients can be treated with conservative measures including medications, splinting or casting, and physical therapy, and some patients require surgery. Treatment with steroid injections and joint lubricating injections coupled with physical therapy and home exercise programs will get you back to your active life.
