Hip and Knee
At United Regional we treat a variety of hip and knee conditions.
Hip pain is most often caused by:
- Insufficient blood flow
Arthritis and insufficient blood flow can often be treated through surgery and physical therapy. Hip fractures often lead to total hip replacement because less than 50% of those who suffer a hip fracture are able to return to their normal level of activity.
Most knee injuries can be categorized by into three types:
- ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury
- MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) injury
- Meniscus (Cartilage) tears
These soft tissue injuries are often corrected by minimally-invasive surgical procedures and physical therapy programs. However, with a severe knee injury or chronic pain, a total knee replacement may be required.
