One of the many conditions that our Atlanta Chiropractors treat is osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that often develops as a result of the protective cartilage that exists on the tip of your bones begins to wear away due to past injuries or age.
Causes of Osteoarthritis
The cartilage that exists around your knees and hips consists of dense and slippery tissue that allows your joints to flex as you move.
For patients who are affected by osteoarthritis, their cartilage transforms over time from compact and slick to soft and bumpy.
Once your cartilage completely wears away, your bones begin to rub against each other, creating a kind of friction that can be extremely painful if left untreated.
The Effects of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis can cause significant damage to any area of the body, although it mostly affects the joints that exist in your wrists, hips, knees and spine.
Most osteoarthritis patients describe their condition as an extreme and consistent throbbing pain that leaves them feeling completely stiff.
Patients often experience significant tenderness, inflammation, soreness, and are vulnerable to bone injuries. Those who suffer from Osteoarthritis often start to notice pain in their knees, which eventually transfers to the hips. If left untreated, your joints can become permanently deformed, causing painful bone growths to grow within your fingers and toes.
