Treatment for Osteoarthritis of the Knees
Osteoarthritis of the knees is when the natural cushioning between the knee joints, known as cartilage, wears away. When this happens, the bones of the knee joint rub more closely against each other, resulting in pain, decreased ability to move, stiffness, and swelling.
While osteoarthritis can occur in young people, the chance of developing it rises after age 45. When it comes to treating osteoarthritis of the knees, the primary goal is to relieve pain and return mobility.
At Advanced Regenerative Medicine, we take pride in providing pain relief for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Our minimally invasive model involves a combination of knee-joint injections, physical therapy, and an unloading knee brace. Our treatment for osteoarthritis of the knees is also covered by AARP and Federal Medicare.
