Treatment for Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis 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 , 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. Our minimally invasive model involves a
combination of knee-joint injections, physical therapy, and an unloading knee brace.
Our treatment for osteoarthritis is also covered by AARP and Federal Medicare.

Viscosupplementation

Our healthcare professionals will administer GenVisc 850 by inserting a needle into
the space in your knee joint. Patients treated with GenVisc 850 have been shown to
experience improvements in knee pain. GenVisc 850 knee joint injections have been
FDA approved since 2015 to treat osteoarthritis.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a critical component of the Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol (AARP). It helps you find the balance of keeping your knee joints moving just enough so they’re strong and healthy. Our team will develop a custom treatment plan specific to the nature of your condition and your goals, which may include:
  • Muscle strengthening
  • Range-of-motion exercises
  • Manual therapy
  • Therapeutic modalities
  • Activity recommendations

Unloading Knee Brace

An adjustable unloading knee brace helps reduce the pressure on the kneecap and knee cartilage. This knee support device increases the joint space and allows the viscosupplement injection to work with greater ease. Unloading knee braces are highly durable and cushioned to avoid skin irritation from extended wear time.

Incorporating these components into a patient treatment program results in better
overall patient recovery in treating pain from osteoarthritis.
