What is Osteoarthritis?

 

Osteoarthritis is a normal result of aging, 
Is it also caused by 'wear and tear' on a joint.

Cartilage is the firm, rubbery tissue that cushions your bones at the joints, and allows bones to glide over one another. If the cartilage breaks down and wears away, the bones rub together. This causes pain, swelling, and stiffness. Bony spurs or extra bone may form around the joint. The ligaments and muscles around the joint become weaker and stiffer.

Often, the cause of osteoarthritis is unknown... it is mainly related to aging. But, the symptoms of osteoarthritis usually appear in middle age. Almost everyone has some symptoms by age 70. However, these symptoms may be minor. Before age 55, osteoarthritis occurs equally in men and women. After age 55, it is more common in women.  For more information follow me...

KNAP Program

Get knee pain relief -
no surgery necessary!

Do you experience stiffness or pain in your knees when you get out of bed? Are you avoiding activities you love just to avoid knee pain? If so, you may be suffering from osteoarthritis, also known as "wear and tear" arthritis.

Over 10 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee. Athletes, everyday workers (especially those who spend a lot of time on their feet) and those who have a family history of arthritis can be affected. Until recently, extended relief from severe knee joint pain caused by osteoarthritis could only be attained through knee replacement surgery. Now, ICPR Family Practice offers an alternative to knee joint replacement surgery that helps limit the pain, not your activities.  For more information follow me...

Hyalgan Injections

HYALGAN is a solution that contains a natural substance called hyaluronate. Hyaluronate is normally found in the fluid that lubricates and cushions your knee joint. HYALGAN is injected into your knee to relieve pain, and is a treatment option for people who do not get adequate pain relief from simple painkillers (like Tylenol or Advil) or from exercise and physical therapy. HYALGAN injections can be used in addition to prescription pain relievers (like Celebrex).  For more information follow me...
