Conditions

Here at Best Health System our doctors are equipped to treat a multitude of orthopaedic and spine conditions.

Conditions

We can help you find long-term relief from pain in the shoulder, hip, knee, and upper/lower extremities. 

Whether it is the result of injury or the natural aging process, chronic pain can be extremely debilitating, affecting relationships, work, and hobbies. Pain and other symptoms can develop throughout the body, but are more common in certain areas due to the increased stress we place on them on a daily basis depending on the lifestyle we lead. 

In addition to the spine, load-bearing joints such as the shoulders, hips, and knees are particularly prone to the development of conditions and injuries. The upper and lower extremities, including the hands, wrists, ankles, and feet are also frequent locations for a number of conditions to develop. 

If you are dealing with chronic pain and symptoms related to an orthopaedic condition, the following overview of the shoulder, hip, knee, and upper/lower extremities conditions can help patients to learn more about the sources of their pain and the available treatment options we offer at BEST.

Overuse injuries of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are common in the hands, wrist, and elbows due to common use. Whether you need help with carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, or tennis elbow, we have treatment options.

Shoulder Conditions

The shoulder's wide-ranging mobility increases the risk of instability and other problems that cause pain and immobility. Whether you are dealing with a rotator cuff tear or a shoulder instability, BEST can help.

Neuropathy Conditions

Neuropathy, also known as nerve damage, can develop from a variety of conditions. When neurons are damaged, they are unable to communicate with one another. As a result, the brain cannot communicate with the nerves, making it difficult to do things that were once easy.
