Arthritis is a common disease afflicting millions of people. When a person has arthritis, the cartilage in the joint breaks down leading to bone-on-bone friction. Such friction causes joint pain, inflammation, and disability. The cure for this disease is currently unknown but there are ways to reverse the degenerative process of arthritis and significantly reduce joint pain and disability.
Arthritis is a painful degenerative condition with no apparent cure and as such, many people with severe arthritis are recommended to get joint replacement surgery. This surgery is extremely invasive and long-term consequences are an unknown. Some patients are left with permanent weakness, stiffness, and disability after their surgery. As a Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation physician with over 30 years of experience, I help patients with arthritis find pain relief and avoid joint replacement surgery.
The cartilage between the joints act as a shock absorber for the joint allowing easy movement. When this cartilage breaks down, bone on bone friction occurs causing constant pain, inflammation, and disability.
