Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, which is a breakdown of the cartilage and soft tissues that surround joints in our inner body. Osteoarthritis degenerative joint disease is just one of many joint diseases of arthritis that people suffer from today. Millions of aging adults, especially women, in the United States alone have some type of arthritis, whether from aging, family history, excessive weight or past injuries, says Matthew CiRullo, D.O., Morrisville Tribune online, June 29, 2017. He says that osteoarthritis is degenerative (deterioration of the tissues) and incurable, and therefore, people who suffer from this type of arthritis do light exercises and stretches before bed, avoid sitting long hours, manage weight and do not smoke as a daily routine to relieve the pain of this disease.
Because some people who have osteoarthritis degenerative joint disease suffer from daily pain and struggle to just get around, there are medical institutes that treat osteoarthritis pain, such as knee osteoarthritis. The Osteo Relief Institute Jersey Shore in Wall Township, N.J., for instance, is a group of board certified physicians and physical therapists that help individuals reduce knee pain without the possibilities of knee surgery.
The symptoms of knee osteoarthritis may not only include knee pain but stiffness and swelling in the knees as well. Therefore, people with knee osteoarthritis may struggle with everyday walking, climbing and even sitting or getting up from a chair, couch or bed. At Osteo Relief Institute Jersey Shore, the board certified physicians and physical therapists only use the most up-to-date technologies to help patients with long-lasting pain relief.
In addition to treating knee osteoarthritis pain, the Osteo Relief Institute Jersey Shore group helps patients with different musculoskeletal (muscles and skeleton) pain like osteoarthritis of the hands, thumb, and fingers (HealthGrades). They treat patients with advanced biomechanical (movement of bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons) bracing (support) and provide natural joint lubrication (natural anti-inflammatory) injections. Other osteoarthritis techniques used at the Osteo Relief Institute Jersey Shore are non-grueling (not exhausting) to help strengthen both knee and spine osteoarthritis, among other osteoarthritis techniques to relieve pain and maintain healthy joints.
