KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS AND DEGENERATION
With Knee Osteoarthritis and Degeneration, the cartilage at the ends of the bones that is there to protect them gradually deteriorates, the joint fluid loses its ability to absorb shock, and bones may begin to rub against each other. All of these issues can cause knee pain.
SHOULDER OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA) AND DEGENERATION
Shoulder osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that consists of two primary processes – the breakdown of the cartilage in the bones and abnormal bony growths in the joints. These bone growths are typically referred to as osteophytes (also known as bone spurs). Both processes are painful to the patient and require the assistance of a pain management facility.
ROTATOR CUFF SYNDROME
Rotator cuff syndrome occurs when there is a tear in the tendons around the shoulder joint. Frozen shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis) can cause pain and stiffness in the shoulder. Over time, it can becomes difficult to move the shoulder. Frozen shoulder has about a 2% occurance rate in the general population, it generally affects people between the ages of 40 and 60, and affects women more often than men.
HIP OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA) AND DEGENERATION
Osteoarthritis is caused by degeneration of cartilage; a slow process that occurs over time. The pain associated with osteoarthritis increases as time goes on. As the cartilage wears away it becomes frayed and rough and the protective joint space between the bones decreases. Bone spurs (Osteophytes) may begin to form in an attempt to make up for the loss of cartilage. If a hip is affected by osteoarthritis and left untreated, it can lead to disability. Often times requiring surgery to correct. This is why it is of utmost importance to seek nonsurgical treatment by an ACGME certified pain management specialist when experiencing hip pain, before surgery is your only option.
