Quality Treatment With Super Affordable Price
Osteoarthritis is the form of arthritis that is most common. All structures that support the joints—cartilage, ligaments, bone, and muscles—are affected. OA happens when the cartilage, a flexible, shock-absorbing tissue that cushions joint surfaces, deteriorates. When cartilage is damaged, a joint may swell and hurt.
Your physical therapist will explain your condition to you and help you understand:
We will address any unique physical problems hip OA brings. They may also take care of problems in nearby body parts, such as the spine and lower extremities, to improve overall health and physical function.
Although the exact cause is unknown, several factors may increase the risk, including past injuries, obesity, advanced age (typically over 50), a family history of OA, recurrent gout attacks or septic arthritis, participation in high-impact sports, and the fact that it affects more women than men.
Symptoms include discomfort, poor mobility, stiffness (worse in the morning), swelling, and disturbed sleep.
It is very unusual for treatment to fall short of reversing this condition. In these situations, we will recommend injection therapy immediately or refer you to do more research.
