Arthritis of the KneeYour knee joint is where your thigh bone (femur) and your shin bone (tibia) meet. It allows the bones to move freely but within limits.
There are three different types of arthritis that can occur in your knees. The most common type is osteoarthritis, a progressive disease that slowly wears away joint cartilage. Gradual Increase in Pain | Swelling or Tenderness | Buckling and Locking | Cracking or Popping Sounds | Poor Range of Motion | Loss of Joint Space | Deformities of the Knee
Club FootClubfoot is a deformity in which an infant’s foot is turned inward, often so severely that the bottom of the foot faces sideways or even upward.
Cerebral PalsyThe term cerebral palsy refers to any one of a number of neurological disorders that appear in infancy or early childhood and permanently affect body movement and muscle coordination but don’t worsen over time.
Even though cerebral palsy affects muscle movement, it isn’t caused by problems in the muscles or nerves. It is caused by abnormalities in parts of the brain that control muscle movements. The majority of children with cerebral palsy are born with it, although it may not be detected until months or years later. Contact us for more information on treatment.
ScoliosesScoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. When viewed from the side, the spine should show a mild roundness in the upper back and shows a degree of swayback (inward curvature) in the lower back.
When a person with a normal spine is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be straight. When a person with scoliosis is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be curved. A scoloisis brace is ussually worn under clothing and is one method used to try improve the exaggerated curvature of the spine as seen in scoliosis.

Compression StockingsWeakness of the veins [phlebasthenia] is a frequent disease. Roughly one man in five and one woman in four have this condition. There can be many causes for it.
Patients are often genetically predisposed, and a lack of movement – due to activities carried out mainly in a seated or standing position – can also lead to various diseases. Wearing compression stockings regularly will improve your health and quality of life decisively. Thanks to targeted compression exerted on your legs, your veins will be brought back into shape naturally and their functioning will be supported.
