Step up…PRP Now Recommended For Osteoarthritis
Posted on: July 20th, 2018 by Lloyd Tapper

If you’re a young adult with hip or knee arthritis, you know how limited your treatment options can be. When weight management, physiotherapy and medications don’t provide relief, you may be required to wait until age 65 to qualify for a joint replacement. The time between non-surgical treatment failure and the time when patients qualify for a joint replacement is often referred to by doctors as the “treatment gap“.  Now, thanks to a new […]

Groin and hip pain You’ve got that nagging pain in the front of your hip.  It’s sort of in the groin region, but a bit more in front.  When you sit, it’s basically somewhere along the fold your skin makes between your leg and your lower belly.  It’s been there for months, really, when you […]
