The hips, along with your knees, support the weight of your body and are prone to joint pain and deterioration simply due to every day wear and tear. Hip injuries including sprains, strains, fractures and dislocations are very common and often occur due to falls, accidents, sports injuries or weakening of the hips. Common hip conditions treated at The Spine & Rehab Group include:
Tendonitis of the hip, also known as Iliacus Tendonitis, is inflammation of the hip flexor tendon usually experienced in dancers, athletes and people who live active lifestyles. The hip pain associated with Tendonitis of the hip is usually in the front of the hip.
Hip Bursitis occurs when the bursae in the hip become inflamed. The bursae providing cushioning to the hip joints and can be come stressed or irritated due to repetitive use or an injury. Hip bursitis often causes hip pain and buttocks pain.
Arthritis of the hip leads to inflammation and degeneration of the hip joints, which can cause hip pain and limited movement. Both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis affect the hip joints. Exercise and stretching, as taught in Physical Therapy, is often helpful in alleviating hip pain due to Arthritis.
The ankle and the feet are very delicate parts of the leg. They provide us stability but can cause extreme discomfort, pain and difficulty walking if affected by an injury or a condition. Ankle injuries or foot injuries happen every day and can be less severe sprains and strains or more serious fractures or stress fractures. Common foot and ankle conditions that cause foot pain and ankle pain include:
Plantar Fasciitis is a foot condition that causes foot pain and heel pain but can be relieved with non-surgical treatments. The plantar fascia is the stretch of tissue that joins the heel and the toes. In patients with Plantar Fasciitis, the plantar fascia becomes inflamed and irritated due to frequent use and stretching.
Achilles Tendonitis as a form of tendonitis, which causes heel pain or ankle pain. The Achilles tendon joins the heel to the calf muscles and endures tension every time you walk, run, jump or play sports. Achilles tendonitis causes inflammation in response to overuse or injury of the Achilles tendon.
Arthritis can affect both the feet and the ankles, causing inflammation and pain of any one, or more, of the 30 joints in the foot. Arthritis that affects the foot or ankle can make it difficult to walk and live an active lifestyle. Non-surgical treatments can be effective in treating ankle pain or foot pains associated with Arthritis and improve motion.
