Non-Operative Therapy for Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability in the United States. It is a degenerative joint disease that produces pain, stiffness and other disruptive symptoms. In its early stages, arthritis of the knee is treated with nonsurgical methods, such as weight loss, medications, physical therapy or corticosteroid injections. When these methods have failed to relieve your pain and restore your mobility, viscosupplementation is another conservative treatment option that may help.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid surrounding joints. It acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for your joints. People with osteoarthritis suffer from a lower-than-normal concentration of hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the goal of viscosupplementation is to improve movement and reduce pain by injecting hyaluronic acid into the arthritic joint, which is most often the knee.

This treatment technique is not effective for every patient with arthritis. We will determine if viscosupplementation is best for you. You can trust that Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers a full range of osteoarthritis treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, to ensure you find a solution that eliminates your pain and helps you return to the high-functioning lifestyle you deserve.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Heat and Cold Therapy: Home Remedies

Hitting the Funny Bone Isn’t Funny

There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
