Love Your Joints

January 19, 2024

At Hancock Health, we hope to make health possible for all of the patients who walk through our doors. One of the areas we see people suffering immensely is joint injury and pain, especially when it begins to impact everyday functioning. Hancock Orthopedics providers are skilled, knowledgeable and care about helping patients to get back into the swing of things through preventative measures, conservative treatments and surgery when necessary, so you can love your joints again.

We want to help you LOVE your joints

Joint pain is nothing to brush off, especially if it seems to be getting worse year after year. Staying active is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not to mention the mental and emotional benefits of participating in activities you love. Loving your joints can happen in many ways and one is seeing your Hancock Health provider to discuss any pain, discomfort or lack of mobility you may be experiencing.

You may be referred for a consultation with one of our orthopedic specialists, who are trained to provide a full range of orthopedic care to keep you moving. These providers can treat many conditions, including but not limited to pediatric issues, rheumatoid arthritis, carpel tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, dislocations, sports injuries, nerve injuries, rotator cuff tears, hammer toe, plantar fasciitis and more.

Joint replacements and spine services

No one wants to be told that they need surgery, but when conservative interventions don’t work, joint replacements can help you to live pain free and regain your mobility. Hancock Orthopedic specialists offer total joint replacements for hips, knees and shoulders. Like everything else we do, we take a holistic approach and value our patients input. You will be an important part of your pre-op, post-op and recovery process. We even offer classes and support groups for those who are receiving or have received joint replacements. Rehabilitation services are an important part of all of our surgeries and vital for full recovery of motion after joint surgery.

Orthopedic surgery

Similarly to joint replacement surgery, other surgeries are only used when absolutely necessary. Our specialists skillfully perform a wide variety of surgeries to help patients feel better, including bone fusion, carpel tunnel release, intramedullary nail and rod surgeries and pediatric surgeries such as ankle fusion, bunionectomy, Ganglion cyst removal, metatarsal osteotomy and more.
