Do You Suffer From Bone On Bone Knee Pain?

Osteoarthritis Explained

Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative joint disease and is the most common type of arthritis. When osteoarthritis occurs, the surface layer of cartilage around the knee breaks down and wears away. The bones that connect at the knee joint then rub together with no cushion resulting in pain, swelling, and loss of motion in the joint. While the disease can progress quickly, in most people it develops gradually over a period of years.

Osteoarthritis is Not Your Fault

It’s not your fault that you have osteoarthritis. There are many reasons why this disease afflicts people. Heredity can be a major cause of osteoarthritis. If a parent or grandparent had osteoarthritis, it may be passed down to you. Other reasons for developing osteoarthritis include:

  • Being overweight (medical factors can impact this, not just over-eating)
  • Aging (wear and tear)
  • Joint injury (falls, sport injuries)
  • Joints aren’t properly aligned or are imbalanced
  • Genetic defects in the joint cartilage
  • Undue stress on joints from work, sports, etc.

Our Treatment is Non-Surgical!

Our treatment has been thoroughly tested by the FDA over many clinical trials and is designed specifically for those with knee pain. Its effectiveness is proven and is improved through the use of state-of-the-art live motion fluoroscopy which allows doctors to see exactly where the problem is occurring.

Here’s How Our Treatment Works…

Our advanced technology allows our doctors to see the exact location in the knee where the greatest damage is. This is done through special imaging called flouroscopy. Once the affected area is located, an FDA-approved viscosupplementation gel is injected at the exact point where it will do the most good. From there, the healing process begins. The gel bonds with the existing natural fluid in the knee to create a lubricating and cushioning layer in the knee between the bones. This reduces pain, swelling and inflammation in the joint. Most patients feel improvement quickly and can resume activities they hadn’t previously been able to do because of the pain.
