What is Joint Osteoarthritis?


Osteoarthritis, commonly known as wear and tear arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis. It is associated with a breakdown of cartilage in joints and can occur in almost any joint in the body. It commonly occurs in the weight-bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine

Medications, physical therapy, and sometimes interventions can help reduce pain and maintain joint movement.
Cartilage is a firm, rubbery material that covers the ends of bones in normal joints. Its main function is to reduce friction in the joints and serve as a “shock absorber.” The shock-absorbing quality of normal cartilage comes from its ability to change shape when compressed (flattened or pressed together).

Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage in a joint to become stiff and lose its elasticity, making it more susceptible to damage. Over time, the cartilage may wear away in some areas, greatly decreasing its ability to act as a shock absorber. As the cartilage deteriorates, tendons and ligaments stretch, causing pain. If the condition worsens, the bones could rub against each other.

What are some treatments of Joint Osteoarthritis?


At the Ramos Center we offer multiple treatments for osteoarthritis. We always want to start with the most conservative treatments first, such as physical therapy, behavioral health, or clinical hypnotherapy. Interventional treatments would include injections and radiofrequency ablations. Your provider will go over different treatment options with you and figure out what the best step is for you depending on your pain type and anatomy.
