Chronic Pain Therapy: Helping Those with Bone on Bone Diagnosis

Arthritis is one of the leading causes of tissues and cartilage degeneration that causes chronic pain in various parts of the body. When tissue degeneration becomes advanced, it is often referred to as bone on bone arthritis. Patients with bone on bone arthritis have complete joint space narrowing as a result of cartilage loss. This means that the bones (of the knee, shoulder, hip, or wrists) are rubbing together which causes extreme pain. The purpose of cartilage is to support and cushion the movement of joints and bones. Loss of this tissue therefore leads to chronic pain that can disrupt mobility and every day activity. Bone spurs are often present in patients with bone on bone arthritis as the bone grows out in attempts to make up for the lost cartilage. In addition to extreme pain, bone on bone arthritis may also cause locking or sticking of the affected joint, clicking noises when moving the joint, and decreased range of mobility. Bone on bone patients are told that their last hope is complete joint replacement surgery as they have no cartilage left to save. Joint replacement surgeries, however, don't always have such positive outcomes and may lead to further complications.

Alternative Medicine Options For Bone on Bone

The truth is, if you are able to move your joint at all, then there are still live tissues present in the joint. Recent research into chronic pain has shown that even those who suffer from bone on bone arthritis can experience tissue regeneration. While those with bone on bone arthritis may have very little tissue left and extremely thinned out cartilage, they still possess microvessels that contain oxygen and red blood cells within the joint. These microvessels are essential in healing - cortisone shots and surgery destroy these microvessels, meaning that those treatment options are actually detrimental to the natural healing process. Our treatment, on the other hand, supports your body's natural ability to heal itself. This chronic pain therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free option that is available at Chronic Care of Richmond.

Are you tired of hearing that surgery is your only option? Surgery can lead to complications, infections, and long recovery times. The risk of complications also increases with age. At Chronic Care of Richmond, we believe in therapies that support healing and require minimal recovery time. Don't let degenerative, chronic arthritis take over your life. With the help of Chronic Care of Richmond, you can have your life back. With our chronic pain treatment, you can finally experience freedom from your degenerative chronic joint pain.
