Osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease occurs when the cartilage of a joint breaks down and causes the bones to rub against each other. This leads to pain, stiffness, swelling and difficulty moving the joint. The condition can affect the fingers, thumbs, spine, hips, and knees. Common risk factors include aging, obesity, previous joint injury, overuse of the joint, weak muscles, and genetics. At HealthQuest, osteoarthritis pain treatment modalities range from non-invasive to minimally invasive and advanced surgery. Our goal is to help patients manage chronic joint pain, improve mobility, and enhance quality of life.
At our multispecialty center in Brooklyn, the osteoarthritis treatment team includes health professionals such as medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, rehab specialists and orthopedic physicians. This integrated approach promotes effective osteoarthritis pain management and better function improvement.
Non-surgical options are the first line of treatment to help alleviate the pain and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis. These include:
Diagnosis of osteoarthritis includes evaluation of personal and family medical history, physical examination and blood tests. Imaging tests such as x-ray and MRI may be performed to confirm diagnosis.
Our team will develop a customized treatment plan for you after assessing various factors such as the severity of the condition, nature of symptoms, which joints are affected, age and lifestyle. In most cases, treatment will include a combination of these options. Orthopedic surgery will be recommended only if these non-invasive options fail to produce the desired results.
