Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of cartilage, the soft cushioning tissue located between joints. More than 50 million Americans have some form of arthritis with osteoarthritis being the most common.
Arthritis is also the leading cause of disability in the United States.
Age, injury, lifestyle, and heredity can all play a role in who will develop osteoarthritis. As cartilage wears away the bones will begin to rub together (LinkedIn). This weakens joints and causes pain and swelling. Over time the joint can wear to the point that surgical intervention is necessary. However, if started early, there are nonsurgical pain solutions and physical therapies that can help prolong or even prevent the progression of the degenerative joint disease. If you have osteoarthritis or chronic joint pain you should seek expert medical help. With the right treatments, it is possible to restore mobility and quality of life.
The Osteo Relief Institute in New Jersey specializes in joint and knee pain. As a multidisciplinary clinic, the Osteo Relief Institute can help you avoid surgery with the latest FDA approved technologies. Many treatments have little or no downtime.
