This could include rest, reducing activity, stretching and strengthening exercises, and splinting and bracing. These techniques are designed to alleviate your pain, regain strength, and also help prevent future injuries.

Every bone and tendon plays an important part in the movement of your hand.
The hand consists of eight bones in the wrist (carpals), five bones in the palm of your hand (metacarpals), and 14 bones in the fingers (phalanges) – 27 bones altogether. With this complexity and fragility, it is vital to seek help in order to alleviate pain and increase function.
Foot pain can have a profound impact on your quality of life.
Half of all adults say that foot pain has restricted their activities—like walking, exercising, working, or playing with grandchildren—in some way. We treat common problems such as heel pain, plantar fasciitis, and nail fungus, as well as diseases, injuries and deformities of the foot and ankle.

Our physicians played a pivotal role in United Regional earning the Joint Commission’s Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement.
To receive this advanced certification, Joint Commission experts observe and evaluate compliance with advanced specific care standards and total hip and total knee replacement requirements.
What this Certification Means for Our Patients
Patients can be confident that they will receive excellent care at every stage – beginning with the orthopedic physician consultation, through the pre-surgical, surgical, in-hospital care, and post-surgical follow-up care, as reviewed by Joint Commission experts.

The addition of the Mako Robot demonstrates United Regional’s commitment to precision medicine and expands our regional leadership in robotic surgery.
