Osteoarthritis (commonly referred to as arthritis) is one of the most common orthopedic conditions. If you are experiencing arthritis, you understand the pain and discomfort involved and how it can negatively impact your quality of life and enjoyment of daily activities.
Historically, many patients over 40 with pain due to osteoarthritis have been advised to try physical therapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), or other injections that can be harmful to the long term health of the joint. In many cases, surgery or joint replacement is often recommended.

As we age, pain or discomfort related to osteoarthritis becomes more common. Previous surgeries earlier in life often create a degenerative cascade in joints due to the removal of important tissues that support the joint’s health. Some of the most common surgeries, like meniscectomy, may lead to a rapid decline in joint health and associated pain due to arthritis.
If you’re suffering from pain related to arthritis, you’re not alone. We help our patients get back to doing the things they love.
