Our Areas of Expertise

TMD

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, or TMD, is a classification of mechanical dysfunction involving the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). The TMJ is the joint that allows for open and closing of the jaw. The most common cause for this limited or altered range of motion of this joint is due to the position of what is known as the articular disc. When the forward slide or translation is blocked there may be painful or pain-free clicking along with limited range of motion.

Shoulder Replacement

A shoulder replacement is an orthopedic procedure in which the two surfaces that form the shoulder joint are replaced by a prosthetic joint. There can be many conditions that lead to needing a shoulder replacement including, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, and numerous failed surgeries. After surgery you will go through physical therapy to control pain and inflammation, improve strength and ROM, and restore function. Normally the hospital stay is a short one and is determined by your surgeon. You may or may not receive physical therapy in the hospital.

Hip Bursitis

The hip joint is a ball and socket joint, which allows for a large range of motion, which creates the possibility for instability and other conditions. Hip bursitis has risk factors that may increase the likelihood of experiencing the symptoms. These risk factors include overuse of the hip, any trauma to the hip including a fall, bone spur or calcium deposit or leg length discrepancy.

ACL

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tears are a very common injury to the young athlete. We see more of these injuries in women due to the anatomical architecture of the lower extremity as it relates to the knee. Approximately two-thirds of all knee injuries are of the non-contact type. At the time of an ACL injury, the patient may hear a loud pop. Additionally, they will feel severe pain and inability to continue activity.
