We specialize in treatment of Knee & Shoulder disorders, as well as offering general orthopaedic advice.
The shoulder is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The shoulder joint is formed where the humerus (upper arm bone) fits into the scapula (shoulder blade), like a ball and socket. The humerus fits relatively loosely into the shoulder joint. This gives the shoulder a wide range of motion, but it also makes it vulnerable to injury.Read More
The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The knee joins the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone(tibia). Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartillage. Medical conditions such as arthritis and infections can also cause knee pain.Read More
Feet have a complex structure consisting of 26 bones, more than 30 small joints (where bones meet) and many muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Most feet have an arch shape that spreads the body's weight evenly over many bones and joints. Feet with lower arches tend to be more flexible, while feet with higher arches are generally less flexible. High or low arches aren't necessarily a problem but they can increase your chances of developing other foot problems.Read More
The spine is made up of 33 individual bones stacked one on top of the other. This spinal column provides the main support for your body, allowing you to stand upright, bend and twist, while protecting the spinal cord from injury. Strong muscles and bones, flexible tendons and ligaments, and sensitive nerves contribute to a healthy spine. Yet, any of these structures affected by strain, injury or disease can cause pain.Read More
