Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the protective cartilage that covers the ends of the bone joints. Including the lower back, hip, knees, hands and neck but can affect any joint in the body. This is also referred to as degenerative arthritis or the “wear and tear” arthritis.
This occurs where the protein that forms the cartilage deteriorates and forms flakes or tiny cracks. This eventually results in partial to total cartilage loss. Once there is loss of cartilage, there’s friction between the bones and this can trigger to bony growths to develop around the joints and cause pain.
Regenerative medicine has been known to treat arthritis in many areas with sometimes as little as only 1 treatment.
