What causes osteoarthritis? Osteoarthritis is caused by the gradual deterioration of the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones in your joints. As the cartilage continues to wear down, bone rubs against bone when you move the affected joint, causing pain. It can happen in virtually any joint in the body, but the most commonly affected areas are the knees, hips, spine, and hands.
At our medical clinic, we have treatments available to help ease your osteoarthritis pain naturally and help you regain your quality of life.
Osteoarthritis Pain Relief
Treating your osteoarthritis pain naturally, without using pain medication or surgery, is the only way to get the long-term relief you are looking for. The pain and discomfort you feel are just by-products of the degraded cartilage, and simply covering up the pain will never address the real cause.
Our injection treatments containing growth factors are an effective way to relieve the pain, stiffness, tenderness, lack of mobility, swelling, and loss of flexibility associated with osteoarthritis.
We prefer these types of injections to treat your arthritis symptoms because they are strong and potent and contain powerful healing factors that haven’t diminished with age like your own healing ability.
When injected into your painful joints, they begin to help heal damaged cells and tissue quickly and efficiently to provide you with long-lasting pain relief.
Types of Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, but it isn’t the only one. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where your own immune system ends up attacking healthy tissues, organs, and joints. In some cases, it can cause permanent damage to a joint.
After an injury like a fracture, torn ligament, or tendonitis, you may end up with what is known as post-traumatic arthritis. This type of arthritis often occurs in a hand, elbow, or wrist.
The skin disorder known as psoriasis can also affect your joints, creating a condition called psoriatic arthritis. If you have osteoarthritis or one of the other common forms of the disease, we have treatment programs that are right for you.
