All people will experience the degeneration of joints as they age, and all joints are susceptible to degenerative diseases, especially arthritis. Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of the joints. The main symptoms of this disease are joint pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, and the disfigurement of the joints. The first step in treating arthritis is finding the source of joint pain. Our interdisciplinary approach involves therapies and treatments that will improve the function of the joints in order to reduce pain. Working with your primary care physician’s medical management plan, we typically do not advise the use of further narcotic medications. Our treatments can include regenerative medicine like stem cell or PRP injections, combined with physiotherapy and many other advanced joint treatments.
The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage to break down, while rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the joints, beginning with the lining of the joints. Osteoarthritis is caused by the wear-and-tear damage to the joints’ cartilage that occurs over time. People in physical occupations such as carpentry, mechanics, or sports use their joints more than most people; thus, they are more likely to suffer from osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that progresses over time to destroy cartilage and bone within the joints. All types of arthritis can stem from family history, joint injury, and obesity.
Finding effective treatment for arthritis is something millions of Americans struggle with. Most physicians choose a medication treatment for arthritis, and while medications can be beneficial, they do not offer a complete regimen. At Medici Spine & Pain, our comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to treating joint pain has helped thousands of patients find relief.
