Osteoarthritis In Shoreview & Shoreview & Arden Hills MN

knee pain

Do you suffer from osteoarthritis in Shoreview & Arden Hills? Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition and while it can occur in anyone, it has been found to affect about 50% of people over the age of 65.  With so many people suffering from this condition, it has put an economic strain on our health care system costing over $10,000,000 per year.  In addition to the massive amount of money spent on osteoarthritis, the disease has been cited as the number one cause of disability in older adults.

As mentioned above, osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that typically results from excessive wear and tear on certain joints.  The degeneration associated with this disease primarily affects the cartilage that covers the bones in the joints throughout our bodies.  Osteoarthritis decreases the cartilages ability to absorb stress causing it to degenerate quicker.  As the cartilage degenerates, surrounding stabilizing and supporting structures such as ligaments, tendons, and muscles is overworked resulting in the development of pain.  In the late stages of osteoarthritis, bone may even began to push against each other causing more pain and degeneration.  While this disease process can sound frightening and unavoidable, it is important to understand that you can prevent its development and Olive Me Chiropractic has the most up-to-date treatment and preventive measures available.

Osteoarthritis has a predisposition to effect joints that are commonly overworked and overused.  These are typically weight bearing joints in the body that sustained repeated amounts of heavy stress.  Therefore, the knees, hips, neck, lower back, big toes, and hands are most commonly affected.  However, it should be understood that osteoarthritis can affect any joint in the body.  Joints that have had serious trauma or repeated micro-stress due to repetitive labor and movement are more prone to the development of osteoarthritis.
