Hip Dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia is a congenital or developmental dislocation of the hip bone. The ball of your hip joint is not centered in the socket which can cause pain, limit motion, and create a snapping sound.

Hip Impingement (Femoroacetabular Impingement)

Hip Impingement occurs when the hip bones grow in irregularly. The resulting structure has bones that rub against each other which can damage the joint or cause pain.

Knee Pain

Knee pain can be caused by a variety of conditions including tears, bone degeneration, overuse. Often knee pain can be cured with conservative treatments such as physical therapy.
