Understanding the underlying causes of arthritis and recognizing its symptoms are crucial in managing the condition effectively.

What Causes Arthritis? 

According to the CDC, one in four adults – or more than 58 million people – suffer from painful arthritis. There are several factors that can contribute to the development of arthritis, including genetics, age, obesity, joint injuries, and autoimmune disorders.

In some cases, arthritis may be triggered by an infection or other medical conditions. Understanding the root causes of arthritis is essential in developing effective treatment strategies and improving quality of life for those living with this chronic condition.

Can Regenerative Medicine Remove Arthritis Pain?

Regenerative medicine utilizes cutting-edge techniques to stimulate the body’s own regenerative capabilities and repair damaged tissues. By introducing growth factors and other biologics into the affected joints, regenerative medicine can promote tissue regeneration and reduce inflammation. This innovative approach not only targets the underlying cause of arthritis but also helps to restore function and mobility in the affected joints.

Unlike traditional treatments that focus on managing symptoms, regenerative medicine addresses the root cause of the condition by promoting healing at a cellular level. This means that patients may experience significant improvements in their symptoms and overall quality of life, without the need for ongoing medication or invasive procedures.

Physical Therapy for Arthritis

Physical therapy helps relieve arthritis pain by focusing on strengthening the muscles surrounding the affected joints. By building up muscle strength, individuals with arthritis can better support and stabilize their joints, reducing pain and improving overall function. Our physical therapists work with patients to develop personalized therapeutic exercise programs that target specific areas of weakness or imbalance, helping to alleviate discomfort and enhance mobility.

In addition to strength training, physical therapy also incorporates flexibility exercises to help improve range of motion in arthritic joints. Stretching tight muscles and increasing joint flexibility can reduce stiffness and make movements easier and less painful. Physical therapists may use techniques such as manual therapy or passive stretching to gently manipulate the joints and soft tissues, promoting increased flexibility and reducing joint stiffness.

Medical Massages can Soothe Your Arthritis Pain

By applying gentle pressure and targeted techniques to the affected areas, massage therapists can help increase blood flow and lymphatic circulation, which in turn helps to decrease swelling and discomfort. This can lead to improved mobility and range of motion in the joints, making everyday activities easier and less painful for individuals with arthritis.

Medical massages can also help relax tense muscles and alleviate stiffness in the joints. Arthritis often causes muscles to tighten up as a protective mechanism, which can exacerbate pain and limit movement. Through techniques such as kneading, stretching, and deep tissue massage, therapists can release tension in the muscles and improve flexibility, allowing for greater ease of movement and reduced discomfort.
