Osteoarthritis is the degenerative joint disease that where your joint’s cartilage wears out and leaves little to no protection for your bones as well as when the OA gets to a certain level then you’ll also lose the shock-absorbing aspect of your cartilage.
The knee is built to withstand tremendous force, but when the cartilage is gone then the other parts of your knees such as ligaments, tendons, and your supporting muscles are all strained and stretched in a fashion that they were not designed to do. This causes further destabilization of your knee as well as increased pains. It’s a trickle-down effect that ends up with even more pain and it may result in bone on bone rubbing which restricts movement and inflames pain.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and the symptoms can range from very severe to mild and it can, and will impact any joints in your body. But the big load bearing joints such as knees, hips, and feet seem to have the biggest impact on the quality of your life if you suffer from OA. In addition, if your hands are impacted then your restrictions in use of your hands would also be a major impact.
The snap, crackle and pop that announcing your presence before people see you are typically evidence of OA. It is not uncommon for a normal joint to also make popping sounds, but the pain that accompanies the cracking and popping is evidence of OA.
Swollen and Deformed Joints.
As OA progresses it can bend fingers and toes as well as deform other joints as the swelling contorts your joints.
Tendon, Ligament, & Muscle Weakness.
As arthritis progresses it puts additional strains on the joints because of the lack of cartilage and due to the inflammation. The end results are stretched and strained muscles. Plus, your lack of being able to move due to OA leads to not working the muscles, tendons, and ligaments which will lend toward atrophy.
The final results always lead towards, pain, stiffness,
Why Regenerative Therapy May Help Osteoarthritis.
Regenerative medicine regenerates cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and more. These are the same symptoms described above.
Regenerative therapy is NOT a cure.
Regenerative therapy reduces inflammation, and it may help to rebuild cartilage to help protect your bone. The results are less pain. The cause of OA is not resolved by regenerative therapy. But we have had a significant number of patients get relief from a lot of the painful symptoms. The lessor the pain, then the more opportunity to move, which increases your muscle strength and tendons, and ligaments.
Now you too, understand that regenerative therapy for osteoarthritis just makes sense.
Get the fact. Get the truth. regenerative therapy is helping people all around the world. regenerative therapy is helping people be able to enjoy the quality of life that they deserve. Will you be next?
