Osteoarthritis is a prevalent type of arthritis that causes symptoms such as pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of flexibility. It is widely recognized as the most common form of arthritis, with millions of cases diagnosed globally each year.
The California Regenerative Clinic in Burlingame strives to alleviate osteoarthritis in patients. We assess each case individually, taking into account their particular issues and needs to develop a suitable treatment plan.
Arthritis is a medical condition that affects the joints of the body, leading to inflammation, discomfort, and limited mobility. Joints are the linking points between bones, such as those found in the knees, elbows, wrists, and shoulders.
Cartilage covers the ends of bones in joints, providing cushion and facilitating easy movement. Osteoarthritis develops when the cartilage deteriorates, leading to bones rubbing together and causing inflammation due to friction.
Osteoarthritis impacts the joint by altering bone structure, breaking down connective tissue, and inducing inflammation in the joint lining.
What Causes Osteoarthritis?
Cartilage becomes worn out due to natural wear and tear, as well as repeated use over many years. This can cause deterioration and expose the joint’s bone. Trauma, often from sports injuries, is a common cause of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can affect people of different ages.
Some factors may increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis, such as gender, with women experiencing a higher incidence.
