Get back to life after surgery

Joint or back pain can keep you from the simple things in life, such as climbing the stairs, walking outdoors on a beautiful day, or spending time with family and friends. Keeping up with daily tasks can be difficult when you have joint pain. If your joint or back pain is affecting your daily life, it may be time to think about orthopedic or spine surgery.

Does your joint or back pain:

  • Keep you awake at night?
  • Cause you to limp when you walk?
  • Make you feel stiff and swollen?
  • Cause you to fall? How often?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, talk with a specialist at Performance Orthopedics about what treatment is right for you.
