The Arthritis Foundation reports that about half of all women and one-fourth of all men will likely suffer from hand osteoarthritis by the time they reach age 85. Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent form of arthritis, and the 29 bones of the hand and wrist provide plenty of areas for it to develop. Dr. Roy Nini and Dr. Paul Lee at Full Range Spine & Ortho in Los Angeles approach arthritis treatment with regenerative medicine techniques.
Arthritis, and osteoarthritis, in particular, occurs as the cartilage between joints wears away with repeated use over time. This allows the bones to rub together with movement, producing pain and inflammation, and even deformity. The most common forms of arthritis in the hand are osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis (after an injury) and rheumatoid arthritis. There is no cure for arthritis, but non-invasive treatments are available to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
Cutting-Edge Regenerative Therapy for Hand Arthritis Pain and Inflammation
The team at Full Range Spine & Ortho uses state-of-the-art regenerative medicine treatments to foster healing and provide pain relief from hand arthritis. Some regenerative medicine techniques have been proven to strengthen remaining cartilage to slow its deterioration, and in some instances, to actually regrow cartilage to replace damaged material.
Some treatments we use for arthritis pain and inflammation include platelet-rich plasma injections, stem cell treatment, peripheral joint injections and physical therapy. Your orthopedic physician at Full Range Spine & Ortho may recommend a combination of these or other treatments in your customized treatment plan.
