By visiting a variety of specialists looking to resolve their pain in the lumbar spine, gluteus muscles, and hip and thigh areas, patients often remain without accurate diagnosis and therefore satisfactory treatment.

The most frequent cause of loss of function and pain is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and traumatic arthritis are the most common forms.

Rotator cuff injuries can be very painful and interfere with daily activities that include lifting the arms, carrying heavy objects, and performing tasks that require a lot of arm movement. The rotator cuff consists of four tendons that hold the head of the humerus (the upper arm bone) in the socket of the shoulder joint.

The shoulder is the most mobile, but also the most unstable joint of the human body. Great mobility is necessary in order to be able to perform all daily tasks, be it work, recreation or sports. In order for this not to be a problem, it is necessary for the shoulder joint to be stable. Its mobility is enabled by an abundant articular capsule and a large disparity between the size of the head of the humerus and the joint socket of the scapula: the humeral head is 2-3 times larger than the socket.

Ankle injuries are the most common injuries in athletes, but also in people who do not play sports. Few of us have not experienced a sprained ankle in our lifetime and don’t know what problems it brings.

Treatment of foot deformities depends on the type of deformity and its cause. This may include the use of special insoles or orthotics, physiotherapy, surgery, or lifestyle changes such as wearing shoes with adequate support and exercises to strengthen the muscles. You should consult a doctor if you notice any changes in your feet or feel pain in that area.

The elbow is a joint that is not talked about too much. The reason lies in the fact that elbow injuries are not particularly common in sports that are popular in these parts, and those that do occur are treated relatively quickly.
