Osteoarthritis Pain Management New Jersey
Do you suffer from osteoarthritis? The first step to effective osteoarthritis pain management is finding a health care provider that will not only provide much needed pain relief, but address joint deterioration as well. Dr. Peter Ferraro has been practicing chiropractic medicine for over 12 years. His unique holistic approach will not only provide osteoarthritis pain management, but improve your joint health in the process. Give his New Jersey office a call to discuss the difference a wellness approach to osteoarthritis treatment can make.
Osteoarthritis occurs when joint cartilage begins to deteriorate after years of use. The cartilage is what cushions the ends of the bones that come together to form your joint. When the cartilage begins to deteriorate, it creates intense pain, and a host of physical challenges including the following:
- The underlying bone may to thicken, and cysts may form under the cartilage.
- The affected bone ends may begin to form boney growths, called bone spurs.
- Once the cartilage has deteriorated, bone ends rub against each other causing intense pain, stiffening and loss of mobility in the joint.
- Bits of cartilage and bone begin to float about in the joint space. Inflammation occurs in the joint lining, resulting in proteins and enzymes that further break down the cartilage and bones.
What can be done? While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, treatments do exist to manage the pain and slow down the progress of the disease.
Chiropractic practitioners, such as Dr. Peter Ferraro, can provide additional benefits in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Chiropractic adjustment restores normal joint alignment, significantly reducing the wear and tear of the cartilage. With the joint properly aligned, there is improvement in movement, and a significant reduction of inflammation and pain. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, chiropractic treatment can provide effective osteoarthritis pain management.
