Joint problems can occur at any age. With the medical technology available today, it is no longer necessary to endure the pain and tolerate the limitation of activities associated with deteriorated joints. The knee and hip joint are the major weight-bearing joints in the human body. The considerable stress that these joints are subject to during a lifetime often results in extensive wear of the joint surfaces. These joint surfaces are covered by a spongy soft tissue called cartilage. The cartilage normally serves as a lubricating surface and allows free gliding of the joint surfaces back and forth as one goes about daily activities. When the cartilage wears to the point that it no longer adequately covers the underlying bone, significant pain results with activity. You may Also interested in:

Injuries of the knee in athletes vary somewhat from injuries in other patients. This is due to several factors. The degree of conditioning and quality of the tissues in athletic knees are higher. The types of injury are more sports specific (for example, anterior cruciate ligament tears). Finally, the expectations of the athletes for post treatment functional outcome tend to be higher due to their sporting interests. Thus, surgical techniques have evolved in the last 10 to 20 years that have allowed for less invasive repair and reconstruction of knee injuries in the athlete to allow a high level of return to function with minimal invasiveness.

The foot and ankle provide a foundation and bear the weight of the entire body. Keeping the patient's feet and ankles free of pain will allow them greater mobility and freedom to pursue activities they enjoy. Patients experience a number of foot and ankle problems including bunions, heel pain, neuromas, hammertoes and flat feet, all of which can result in severe pain.

Many factors contribute to the cause of pain in the foot and ankle, including poorly fitting shoes, heredity, aging and disease. Athletes and dancers sometimes experience unique foot and ankle problems related to the stress on these joints while participating in practice and events.
