Help Available for Osteoarthritis

With baby boomers beginning to age, there has been a surge in the number of arthritis cases reported in the United States. Arthritis covers a broad spectrum of conditions. Although arthritis is an extensive category of conditions, the number one type of arthritis affecting the population is osteoarthritis.

 

 

Osteoarthritis is the breaking down of cartilage in the joints. This breakdown causes a ‘bone on bone’ rubbing which can cause excessive pain. Although there is no cure, several methods of managing the pain have been identified (HealthGrades). The Osteo Relief Institute can help.

 

 

The doctors and therapists at the Osteo Relief Institute will work with clients to educate them on preventative measures which can also provide relief. Exercise and stretching, along with behavior modifications can reduce the impact of osteoarthritis. Excessive weight can also add additional stress to the joints, in turn, causing more pain and discomfort.

 

 

At the Osteo Relief Institute, our board certified doctors and physical therapists are able to help patients reduce, manage and often times eliminate the pain from Osteoarthritis. Using non-surgical methods, patients are instructed on how to strengthen their joints to naturally eliminate pain. Other treatments include:

 

 

  • Injections of all natural lubricants to ease the pain
  • Videofluoroscopy – an x-ray to monitor motion, similar to that used for swallowing tests
  • Strength exercises
  • A variety of other techniques

 

The Osteo Relief Institute has proven treatments and techniques which can provide:

 

 

  • An increase in the amount of lubrication in the joints
  • Maintain joint mobility
  • Maintain and improve the range of motion for the joint
  • Increased joint strength
