Our Hip & Knee Program
For those suffering chronic knee or hip pain due to injury or arthritis, the comprehensive knee and hip team at OSM utilizes the expertise of Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons and Sports Medicine Specialists to treat knee and hip conditions. Our patient centered approach ensures that each patient’s care plan is based on their lifestyle, activities, and goals. Our team will collaborate to explore all treatment options including non-surgical treatment, minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgical treatment, joint replacement or physical therapy. If surgery is recommended, OSM offers the most advanced minimally invasive surgical treatment options anywhere in Connecticut.
Several different forms of arthritis can affect the knee, including Rheumatoid Arthritis or Osteoarthritis. Arthritis of the knee will often cause pain, weakness, stiffness and loss of motion in the knee joints. For many patients, non-surgical treatments that include injections and physical therapy can provide lasting relief. For others, a Partial or Total Knee Replacement can be considered.
The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that has a coating of cartilage over the ball and on the inner surface of the cup. When this cartilage becomes thinned or deteriorated due to aging or injury, this can cause pain and stiffness in the hip as well as inflammation of the hip joints. Arthritic pain in the hip often increases with walking, standing, and sleeping.
Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper's Knee)
Patellar Tendonitis, often referred to as “Jumper’s Knee”, is the inflammation of the patella tendon which connects the kneecap (patella) to the shinbone and provides stability to the knee. The term “Jumper’s Knee” is used because this injury often affects athletes whose sports involve repetitive jumping (basketball, volleyball, hurdles, etc).
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is responsible for stabilizing the knee and prevents the overextension of the bones and joints of the knee. If the ACL is stretched past its natural capacity it can become partially torn or completely torn. If the tear is a complete tear, a “pop” can often be heard and pain and the inability to walk are immediate. If the tear is a partial tear, pain and swelling occur quickly and weakness and instability of the knee can persist.
Hip Labrum Tears
Physical therapy is an integral part of the treatment of orthopaedic and sports injuries. At OSM, our providers work closely with one another to provide the ideal care for each patient. Many times, physical therapy is used in conjunction with therapeutic injections to maximize pain relief and strengthening.
