Arthritis is caused by inflammation of the joints causing pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased range of motion. The most common type of arthritis by far is Osteoarthritis, which is essentially degenerative joint disease and wear and tear. Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, is the second most common type of arthritis.
Arthritis effects people of all ages and may start very early, sometimes triggered after an injury. Arthritis is also a progressive disease but we are getting better and better in delaying or even helping stop its progression with early treatment.
In our clinic, we see both young and elderly patients suffering from arthritis. We take a proactive approach to manage and treat arthritis early in order to avoid surgery in the long run. If treated early, Regenerative Medicine options can have great results and help slow down the progression of arthritis. Just like other type of diseases, the earlier you diagnose and treat, the better your chances of avoiding costly and invasive procedures in the long run.
