COMPREHENSIVE SPINAL CARE

 

Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting eight out of ten people at some point during their lives. Neck pain, back pain, weakness, or numbness can be caused by a variety of conditions including: arthritis or other degenerative diseases, ruptured discs, pinched nerves, or acute injuries from falls or accidents. Pain can range from a dull, constant ache in the neck and back to a sudden, sharp, and piercing or burning that can radiate through the upper and lower extremities.

The neck and spine are complex systems that include: 24 vertebrae, over 200 muscles, over 100 joints, and approximately 120 ligaments. Due to the complexity involved, conditions affecting the neck and back require highly skill specialists for accurate diagnosis and treatment. 

SHOULDER SURGERY

 

The shoulder is the most flexible and versatile joint in the body. It allows us to place our hand anywhere in space, with almost 360 degree range of motion. However, the shoulder joint sacrifices stability for mobility, leaving the shoulder vulnerable to injury. Shoulder conditions can be extremely painful and can have a major impact on everyday activities that involve reaching, pushing, pulling, lifting, or overhead movements.

The shoulder specialists at Southern Orthopedic understand the limitations shoulder pain can have on our day-to-day life. Whether you are an athlete with shoulder pain, an aging adult losing range of motion, or suffer from trauma related to a fall or accident, Southern Orthopedic can help.

HIP SURGERY

 

The hip is an extremely flexible weight-bearing joint that is critical to our body’s mobility and stability. Unfortunately, conditions affecting the hip joint are a common orthopedic complaint. When painful hip conditions make daily activities like walking, climbing stairs, or just bending to tie a shoe an impossible task, it’s time to see a specialist.

Some hip issues can be remedied with home exercises, weight loss, medications, and rest. Other, more severe conditions might require surgical intervention to regain normal hip function. Whether your hip pain is the result of a traumatic injury, repetitive overuse, or a degenerative disease, SOSA can help.

KNEE THERAPY

 

The knee is the largest, strongest, and one of the most complex joints in the body. A healthy knee joint allows us to walk, run, squat, climb steps, and move without pain. However, damage or degeneration to any structure in the knee can cause pain, loss of mobility, and difficulty performing daily tasks.

Knee pain can affect people of all ages, and is one of the most common complaints bringing people to SOSA Most knee injuries can be treated conservatively with physical therapy, medication, proper bracing, or joint injections. However, for those suffering from severe pain and stiffness, or experience crunching, locking, and popping when walking, surgery might be necessary. Whether your knee pain is the result of an acute injury, arthritis, or wear and tear from overuse, SOSA can help.

Some of the most common knee conditions we treat include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL tears)
