Knee problems caused by injury or disease are very common and can affect people of all ages. The knee joint allows movement in the legs while also providing stability and enough strength to hold the weight of the body, so when there is an issue it can have a huge impact. From not being able to play sports to simple tasks such as walking or rising, knee conditions can make daily life extremely painful and difficult.
Fortunately, there is something you can do about it.

- Rotator cuff pathology

- Frozen shoulder

You don’t have to be a golfer or tennis player to have painful or persistent elbow issues. Other activities where the elbow is overused can have the same effect. Arthritis, nerve conditions and fractures are some of the other reasons for an elbow or forearm problem to flare up or be consistently present. Stiffness is also a very common condition after trauma or injury. Fortunately, the elbow is somehow a forgiving joint and the shoulder and wrist can compensate for its stiffness; however, if you’re experiencing this condition and are unable to cope, Kalhor Orthopaedic is happy to assist you.
Elbow conditions and treatments Kalhor Orthopaedic looks after include:
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, partial and total elbow replacement
- Cartilage damage
- Ulnar nerve compression (cubital tunnel syndrome)
- Medial and lateral epicondylitis (golfer and tennis elbow)
- Elbow arthroscopy
