For most people, arthritis is inevitable as you age. Every joint in your body is susceptible: knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, ankles, wrists, fingers, and back.
Arthritis is a slow, degenerative process. Over time, the cartilage within your joints, which cushions and lubricates the joints to facilitate movement, wears down. As this occurs, the bones begin to rub together, causing friction and pain within the joint. The pain makes it harder to do everyday tasks, from walking and climbing stairs to reaching overhead and grasping items.
At Regenerative Orthopaedics & Spine Institute (ROSI), our surgical team specializes in treating joint problems such as osteoarthritis. We understand that you probably want to put off joint replacement surgery for as long as possible, and there are treatment options that can alleviate your pain.
We may first recommend no-surgical therapies such as cortisone injections, regenerative PRP therapy, physical therapy, or prescription anti-inflammatories.
