Conditions

Acetabular Dysplasia

Sometimes the acetabulum, or cup-shaped part of the pelvis that forms the hip socket develops abnormally. The result is a dish-shaped acetabulum, a condition known as acetabular dysplasia. Keep reading to learn more about who’s at risk and how it’s treated.

Achilles Tendon – Tear, Rupture, Injury

It is used for walking, running and jumping. It is the largest tendon in the body, connecting calf muscle to heel bone. It is very strong, yet easily injured. “It” is the Achilles tendon. Find out how to deal with an Achilles injury.

Acromioclavicular Joint / Shoulder Separation / A/C Separation

Shoulder damage as a result of a fall or direct blow may result in what’s known as a shoulder separation. In truth, the condition is an injury to the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. The AC joint is located where the collarbone meets the highest point of the shoulder blade. Read on for more.

Ankle Fracture

The tibia, fibula and talus are the three bones that make up the ankle. When one or more of them breaks, the result is a broken ankle, also known as ankle fracture. Read on to learn how it’s diagnosed and treated.

Ankle Instability

Sometimes the ankle can feel wobbly, unstable and like it “gives way”—even while standing still. When this happens repeatedly, the condition is called ankle instability. Keep reading to find out who is most likely to be affected, and how to recover from it.

Ankle Sprain – Sprained Ankle

An accidental twist, an unexpected turn or a sudden misstep can cause an ankle to give way. What happens is the ligament holding bone to ankle stretches beyond its limit, tearing or rupturing. Keep reading to learn more.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injury

Athletes are often sidelined by this common knee sprain or tear known as an ACL injury. There is often an associated injury to other structures in the knee joint. Surgical repair is often required. Keep reading to learn more about causes, symptoms and treatments.

Arthritis – Foot & Ankle

There’s pain. There’s swelling. There’s stiffness. It hurts. It could be arthritis, the general name for more than 100 types. Learn more about how it affects the foot and ankle and what can be done to help.

Athlete’s Foot

Tinea pedis. That’s the medical term for a fungal infection most of us call athlete’s foot. Learn more about the cause—and the cure.

Avascular Necrosis / Osteonecrosis

Blood flow is necessary for musculoskeletal function. When injury or other factor interrupts normal blood (vascular) flow, the result is death or necrosis of the bone and tissue. Read on to learn more about this condition that causes the bone to collapse onto itself.

Avascular Necrosis of the Shoulder

Blood flow is necessary for musculoskeletal function. When injury or other factor interrupts normal blood (vascular) flow, the result is death or necrosis of the bone and tissue. Read on to learn more about this condition that causes the bone to collapse onto itself.

Bankart Lesion

Common in younger people, bankart lesion refers to a tear in the cartilage (labrum) surrounding the shoulder socket. A tear like this often results in a feeling of instability in the shoulder or recurrent shoulder dislocations. Read on to learn more about surgical and non-surgical options.

Biceps Tendon Rupture of the Elbow

“I heard a pop, pop, pop.” That’s how many people with this condition describe the sound when the tendon attaching the biceps muscle to the elbow detaches from the bone. Read on to find out who is likely to rupture a biceps tendon and how it’s treated.

Biceps Tendon Rupture of the Shoulder

“I heard a popping sound, felt pain and experienced weakness.” That’s how many people with this condition describe the sound when the tendon attaching the biceps muscle to the arm at the shoulder detaches from the bone. Read on to find out more.

Bone Infection (Osteomyelitis)

An infection of any kind always requires treatment⎯and none more so than orthopedic bone infections. That’s because bacteria or fungal organisms can quickly invade and destroy healthy tissue, or spread to the bloodstream. Find out what the symptoms are and what to do about it.

Bone Loss (Osteoporosis)

Weak, brittle bones. That is the primary result of a condition called osteoporosis, or bone loss. This progressive disease puts those who have it at an increased risk of fracture. Read on for more about this condition that affects all ages, but is most common among those over 50.

Broken Collarbone, Broken Clavicle

Babies, teenagers and athletes are at the top of the list of people most likely to break the bone connecting the breastbone to the shoulder blade. Depending on the severity of the fracture, this bone (called a collarbone or clavicle) may heal on its own. Keep reading to learn more.

Bunions

While the name might sound funny, a bony bunion on the inside of the foot at the big toe joint is anything but. A bunion is not just unsightly, it also can be quite painful. This malformation, called hallux valgus, creates uncomfortable pressure as it pushes the big toe into the second toe. Tight, narrow, or high-fashion shoes are often to blame for bumpy bunions, but they’re not the only cause. Keep reading to learn what hurts – and what helps.

Bursitis of the Elbow

Although this may sound like something from bygone days, it is a very painful⎯and common⎯condition. Bursitis refers to the inflammation of the fluid-filled sac located on top of the rotator cuff. Keep reading to learn more.

Bursitis of the Shoulder

Although this may sound like something from bygone days, it is a very painful⎯and common⎯condition. Bursitis refers to the inflammation of the fluid-filled sac located between the bone and soft tissue. Keep reading to learn more.

Calcaneus Fracture

This is a painful, debilitating break of the heel bone. Often accompanied by injury to a foot joint called the subtalar, the combined injury can make walking on uneven or slanted surfaces more difficult. Learn the symptoms and interventions for this disabling injury.

Calcific Tendinitis

This is a common shoulder injury, especially among women. This condition occurs when calcium deposits form in the shoulder tendons, causing irritation or inflammation. Keep reading to learn more about the symptoms and treatment options for this type of tendinitis.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Computers, texting and other repetitive and overuse motions can cause pain, tingling and numbness in the hand or wrist. The culprit? Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a condition in which the wrist’s median nerve is “squeezed” or compressed. Read on to learn more.

Cartilage Injuries (Meniscus)

Sometimes when the knee is injured, there’s secondary damage to the tough, flexible surrounding tissue known as cartilage. Cartilage injuries can cause pain and swelling or limit range of motion. Keep reading for how these injuries are treated.

Cartilage Restoration

The articular cartilage is a complex tissue that covers all joint surfaces in our bodies. It is just like the white, shiny, slippery gristle that covers the end of a chicken leg; white, because it has no blood supply; shiny, because its surface is smooth; and slippery, because it is covered with joint lining fluid. This elegantly designed surface is what wears as we develop arthritis. It can also be acutely injured, leading to “chondral defects” or “osteochondral lesions,” which have previously been permanent flaws in the joint left by injury. This poorly vascularized tissue does not heal spontaneously, so routine repair surgery is rarely successful. Fortunately, the treatment of articular cartilage is an exciting topic in musculoskeletal medicine, with new procedures on the horizon. Treatment options have become numerous for cartilage restoration but they must be tailoredyou’re your unique needs. It is crucial to have experienced and knowledgeable physicians making your treatment decisions based on your activity level, your goals, and even the precise location and size of your injured tissue.

Cervical Myelopathy – Spinal Cord Compression

Weakness. Clumsiness. Wobbliness. These are a few of the symptoms of cervical myelopathy, a condition in which the spinal cord is compressed at the neck. Functional changes in the upper or lower extremities are often subtle at first, so proper diagnosis is important. Read on for more.

Cervical Spondylosis – Arthritis of the Neck

Very common among people over the age of 60, cervical spondylosis is an arthritic condition that causes neck pain. Though it rarely becomes anything more than troublesome, pain can range from mild to severe. Find out what helps to relieve the symptoms.

Chronic Elbow Instability

A “loose” elbow can feel like it catches, pops or slides out of place. It usually means that the stability of the elbow is compromised, often due to injury of the bone or surrounding ligaments. Keep reading to learn more.

Chronic Lateral Ankle Pain

Recurring pain or a dull ache on the outside of the ankle after sprain or injury may be a sign of chronic lateral ankle pain. This condition results in ankle instability and persistent pain. Learn more about causes, symptoms and treatments.

Chronic Low Back Pain

Back pain is something nearly everyone experiences. But persistent low back pain⎯the kind that lasts three or more months⎯requires evaluation and treatment by a medical professional. Learn more about what causes chronic low back pain, and how it’s relieved.
