Non-Surgical Treatment Services for OsteoArthritis and Degenerative Joint Disease

Symptoms of OsteoArthritis and DJD include:

  • Any cracking or grating sounds during joint movement.
  • Joint swelling.
  • Limited range of motion.
  • Pain during regular movement (such as during short periods of light walking)
  • Traditional analgesics (tylenol or advil) are working less and less.

FDA Approved Hyaluronic Acid Treatment

We address joint stiffness and the associated mobility issues tied to OA and DJD with non-invasive procedures and immediately follow up with therapeutic sessions to make sure the application of Hyaluronic Acid is spread evenly over the surface of the affected cartilage. This FDA approved procedure replenishes the viscous fluid that the osteoarthritic joint is lacking.

The cartilage is that tough, rubbery material that absorbs the shock of the thigh and shin bones colliding against each other. This material is vital because it keeps these two bones from rubbing together and wearing away. If this material degrades and the bones begin to rub against each other one begins to experience the stiffness and lack of mobility in the joint. The earlier one responds to the onset of these symptoms the more effective this therapy becomes.

Causes of OsteoArthritis and DJD

Osteoarthritis runs along genetic lines so if your parents suffer, prepare yourself for the possibility of dealing with the condition. For the geriatric sufferers, the condition is part of the body's normal wear and tear. There is a 50% likelihood of eventually being affected by this condition. For those that experience the early onset of OA/DJD there are various reasons:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Normal Wear and Tear for Seniors
  • Playing sports that require squatting or kneeling or really any regular, direct impact on the joints.
  • Being overweight increases likelihood of damage knee, hip and ankle and foot joints.
  • Old injuries localized around the area of affectation can also be linked to subsequent OA/DJD.

87% Success Rate

Overall, an 87% success rate has attracted the attention of the medical community and has raised awareness among many patients who are suffering couldn't afford to undergo a lengthy recovery time of up to half a year. Best of all this FDA approved process is covered under most insurances as well as Medicare. This process is enhanced with X-ray imaging for more precise application methods than any other provider.

The effects of adding Hyaluronic acid directly to an affected joint can alleviate pain and reduce swelling and inflammation for the sufferers of osteoarthritis and Degenerative Joint Disease. The freedom this procedure can provide brings the invaluable gift of mobility and togetherness with your family.
