THIS PAGE OUTLINES SEVERAL MORE CONDITIONS THAT WE TREAT FOR OUR LOS ANGELES PATIENTS
A Baker’s cyst develops as the result of a condition or injury affecting your knee joints, such as arthritis or a cartilage tear. It causes swelling, knee pain, stiffness and decreased mobility that tends to worsen with activity. In most cases, treating the underlying cause of your Baker’s cyst will resolve the problem.
Your joints support your body and enable movement. When an injury or disease damages these critical structures, it can cause chronic or acute pain that ranges from irritating to debilitating. As a leader in the orthopedic field, the Orthohealing center provides its patients with access to some of the best joint pain treatment Los Angeles can offer. Some of the most common causes of joint pain that we treat at the Orthohealing Center include osteoarthritis, bursitis, strains, sprains and other injuries.
DISC DEGENERATION AND DISC TEARS
Disc degeneration and disc tears involve damage to the spinal discs that cushion your vertebrae. While disc tears tend to develop due to a sports injury, age-related degeneration and automobile accidents, disc degeneration typically occurs due to osteoarthritis, a herniated disc or spinal stenosis. In either case, we have achieved great success treating both conditions with our innovative regenerative therapies like PRP and stem cell injections.
SACROILIAC JOINT DYSFUNCTION
The sacroiliac joint exists in your lower back and is responsible for supporting the weight of your entire upper body. When inflammation affects this structure due to a sports injury, running or a fall, you may experience a dull or sharp pain that starts at your lower back and eventually extends to your buttocks, groin, upper back and thighs.
Bursae exist around every joint. They are small, fluid-filled sacs that are responsible for cushioning your bones, tendons and muscles. When these sacs become inflamed, it’s referred to as bursitis. This condition most commonly affects the elbow, hip and shoulder joint, and results in pain, stiffness, tenderness and swelling. Fortunately, it is very responsive to regenerative therapies, specifically prolotherapy and neural therapy.
CERVICAL AND LUMBAR FACET DISEASE
Your facet joints are responsible for the flexibility of your spine. They allow you to bend, twist and move freely, but they can become damaged or torn with repetitive movements. With cervical facet disease, you’ll experience pain at the base of your skull, upper back, shoulders and neck, while lumbar facet disease may produce pain in the lower back, buttocks, hips, groin and thighs.
DE QUERVAIN’S TENOSYNOVITIS
De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis affects the tendons along your wrist, near the thumb. It develops due to repetitive hand or wrist movements, and causes pain, swelling and difficulty moving the thumb and wrist. The condition will continue to progress and worsen without treatment, so it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as symptoms emerge.
Spinal stenosis is characterized by the narrowing of the spaces within your spine, placing pressure on your spinal cord and nearby nerves. When this occurs, it causes pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. It can develop as the result of a spinal injury or due to thickened ligaments and disc herniation.
Plantar fasciitis is a foot and ankle condition that is very common among long-distance runners. It is characterized by stabbing pain that tends to be worse first thing in the morning, and can eventually lead to chronic heel pain that prevents you from engaging in your normal activities.
