When it comes to joint disorders, in addition to pain, you may be experiencing other symptoms such as:

  • stiffness
  • limping
  • muscle weakness
  • limited range of motion
  • swelling
  • All of these symptoms can dramatically impact quality of life for those with joint conditions. You may find it difficult to perform everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs, grocery shopping, or even getting in and out of bed.

    Why does this happen?
    Joints can become damaged over time from injuries, overuse, or conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. When more conservative non-surgical treatment methods do not bring significant relief, the best option to alleviate chronic or reoccurring symptoms may be joint replacement surgery.

    What is joint replacement?
    Joint replacement surgery is considered the last line of treatment, when everything else –including medications and physical therapy – haven’t helped. When performing joint replacement surgery, damaged cartilage is shaved off and a metal replacement is put in its place. The most common joints replaced are the hips, knees and shoulders.

    For Finlayson residents, FirstLight orthopaedic surgeons have the expertise you want and expect when considering a hip, knee or shoulder replacement.
