Osteoarthritis Conditions

These are some of the conditions we treat but not all.

We treat PAIN.  All types of pain.

Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Overview:

Knee pain may keep you from being as active as you like. And it may come from a gradual breakdown of your knee's cartilage. That's a protective tissue on the ends of your bones. In a healthy knee, the bones glide smoothly against each other. But in a knee with osteoarthritis, cartilage begins to wear away. Bone rubs against bone. Bony bumps we call "bone spurs" may form.

Treatment:

How do we treat osteoarthritis of the knee? In the early stages, things like physical therapy, weight loss, and a knee brace may help. Medications and and joint injections may help, too. If those aren't working, you may need surgery. Your doctor will create a care plan that's right for you.

Osteoarthritis of the Spine

Overview:

If you have back or neck pain that doesn't go away, you may have osteoarthritis of the spine. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. For many of us, it develops slowly as we age. And it can keep you from being as active as you like.

Treatment:

Treatment options include medications, physical therapy and limiting activities that cause pain. If these aren't helpful, you may need surgery. Your healthcare provider can create a plan that's right for you.
