Do you suffer from joint pain? If you do, you're not alone, as this is a common problem for 15 million other adults. Fortunately, many people with joint pain have found relief by getting a total joint replacement. As a result, they're able to get back to a pain-free life and enjoy their everyday activities. Here's what you need to know about total joint replacement and why you should choose Boise, Idaho surgeon Dr. Miers Johnson, to do the procedure.
What is Total Joint Replacement?
Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure that involves removing damaged or arthritic joints and replacing them with metal, ceramic or plastic devices known as a prosthesis, which are made for replicating healthy, regular joint movements.
By getting a new joint, you can significantly reduce your pain or may even be pain-free. Your joints will be able to work normally, again, and you can enjoy a full range of motion. Therefore, it will be much easier to walk and perform your everyday tasks. Some people can even play sports, such as golf, cycling, and other low-impact ones that they couldn't do before their surgery.
