Your Movement Is Our Mission
For those whose lives have been interrupted by injury or diminished by the pain of a chronic condition, St. Clair Medical Group Orthopedic Surgery is here for you. Because you’ve still got a life you want to live without limitations.
Ligament or meniscus tears in the knee. Carpal tunnel syndrome. Arthritis of the shoulders, hips, and knees. Ankle sprains. These are just a few of the common injuries and conditions that Shaka Walker, MD, and his partners regularly treat at St. Clair Medical Group Orthopedic Surgery.
If you’ve experienced one of these injuries or conditions, you are not alone. According to Dr. Walker, “Over the course of everyone’s lifetime, the chance of having a problem with their bones, joints, or muscles is about a hundred percent. It’s just really a question of what type of problem they will have and when they will experience the problem.”
Kids playing at the playground or jumping on a trampoline can fall and break their wrists or arms. Adults who play pickle ball or tennis can develop shoulder or elbow tendonitis or tear their Achilles tendon. Older adults can fracture their hip after a slip and fall on ice, or they can develop arthritis because of natural wear and tear over the course of their lives. Almost anyone can experience neck strain or “tech neck” if they spend a lot of time looking down at their smartphone or computer.
