Two-thirds of all healthcare is devoted to chronic illnesses, like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and asthma. These conditions develop and worsen over a long period of time, typically more than six months. The other one-third of healthcare is devoted to traumatic injuries and acute conditions, like a broken bone, twisted ankle, stroke, […]

The cervical spine is a complex, delicate area of the human body. The cervical spine is essentially an extension of your brain, where the brain meets the spinal cord in the center of seven cervical vertebrae. Many things can go wrong in the cervical spine, from text neck to whiplash to stenosis. Treatment could involve […]

Arthritis word cloud

In a previous post, I discussed the causes of arthritis, which is not only the leading cause of disability in America, but also has a serious emotional impact on how people feel about their health. The exact cause of autoimmune arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, is unknown, although research suggests smoking, obesity, […]

My 40s were challenging. As a father of five children under the age of 10, I was navigating the development of my practice and allowed a bit too much stress in my life. I wasn’t feeling so well in my later 40s, so I did a complete overhaul.  Since I turned 50, I’ve been aggressive […]

Tendonitis in elbow

In the previous blog post, I discussed the most common causes of tendonitis. Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon that causes pain, tenderness, and mild swelling. Overuse and repetitive movements are often the culprit, whether those movements involve lifting objects overhead, throwing a baseball, swimming, playing golf, running, painting the ceiling, or yard work. Of […]

We sometimes use the suffix “itis” in a joking way to describe someone who has unusual tendencies, obsessions, or aversions. For example, someone who thinks computers are the answer to every problem might have computeritis. A manager who wants to have nonstop, pointless meetings could have a bad case of meetingitis. When it comes to […]

Shoulder Pain

Like the hip, the shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint. Although the shoulder doesn’t support nearly as much weight or force as the hip, it’s still a complex structure of bone, muscle, and other soft tissue, all of which can contribute to shoulder pain, stiffness and weakness. The collarbone (clavicle) and shoulder blade (scapula) form the […]

In the previous post, we discussed the various injuries, diseases and conditions that cause pain in the hip, the strongest joint in the human body. From hip bursitis and osteoarthritis, to car accidents and sports injuries, to herniated discs and gynecological issues, there are dozens of causes of hip pain, some of which aren’t always […]

skeleton x-ray focus on hip pain

The knee may be the largest joint in the human body, but the hip is the strongest joint. Unlike the knee, which is a hinge joint designed to move in one direction, the hip is a ball-and-socket joint, capable of moving front to back, side to side, and around in a circle. To enable these […]

Painful knee

Years ago, if you wanted relief from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, you would get a prescription for medication, cortisone shots, or ointments. Of course, those treatments only mask the pain without fixing the problem. The next step typically would be surgery. In some cases, knee surgery is the only option, especially for severe cases […]
