Knee Osteoarthritis (Oa) And Degeneration
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) happens when the cartilage protecting the ends of bones gradually deteriorates, and the joint loses its shock-absorbing qualities. The bones begin to rub against each other. This may cause daily pain and limit mobility and range of motion in the knee.
Treatments for Knee Osteoarthritis include:
- Physical Therapy
- Joint injections
- Radiofrequency ablation of the knee
- Stem cell treatment
- Anti-inflammatory medication
Shoulder Osteoarthritis (Oa) And Degeneration
Shoulder osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that involves two primary processes. The cartilage in the joints breaks down, and abnormal bony growths called osteophytes or bone spurs, develop in the joint. This causes a great deal of pain and reduced range of motion.
Treatments For Shoulder Osteoarthritis (OA) And Degeneration Include:
Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) can develop from arthritis, rotator cuff tears, and adhesions in the shoulder. The patient will have pain when raising the arm and will experience a reduction in range of motion. Frozen shoulder occurs in about 2% of the general population and commonly affects people between the ages of 40 and 60. This condition occurs in women more often than men. Early diagnosis and treatment is required for a full recovery.

Hip Osteoarthritis (OA) And Degeneration
Osteoarthritis develops due to degeneration of cartilage. This happens slowly over time and causes pain which worsens gradually. As the cartilage wears, it becomes frayed and the protective joint space between the bones decreases. To make up for the loss of cartilage, the damaged bones may begin to grow outward forming bone spurs known as osteophytes. A hip damaged by osteoarthritis that is left untreated may lead to disability and/or surgical intervention. This is why it is crucial to seek nonsurgical treatment by a certified pain management specialist when you begin to experience hip pain.
Treatments for Hip Osteoarthritis (OA) and Degeneration include:
