Osteoarthritis

osteoarthritisOsteoarthritis (OA) is caused by aging joints, injury, and obesity. OA symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Treatment depends on the affected joint, including the hand, wrist, neck, back, knee, and hip, and involves medication and exercise. If you are overweight, weight loss may improve OA symptoms.

osteoarthritisTreatment

Exercising and achieving a healthy weight are the most important long term ways to treat osteoarthritis. Our team of clinicians can help you safely achieve these goals – finding the right balance between activity and rest – for more effective management of the condition.  We can also provide you with immediate and in some cases long lasting relief from the pain you are experiencing.  Our facilities use the latest in therapeutic laser technology. These lasers can reduce the pain and inflammation caused by OA.  They even have the potential to repair some of the tissue damaged by OA – giving longer lasting relief.  Talk to our laser specialists for more information.
