Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

Life’s simplest activities can pose a challenge when you’re suffering from joint pain. Osteoarthritis can prevent you from participating in the things you enjoy most, affecting your overall happiness and well-being. Our compassionate care professionals take a whole-body and whole-being approach to diagnosing the source of your pain and creating a treatment regimen that alleviates pain and builds more confidence in movement, so you can get back to doing what you love.


What Causes Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is one of several types of arthritis. The other two most common types include psoriatic and rheumatoid arthritis. This disease primarily affects the fingers, knees, shoulders, and hips. This condition is caused by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. This breakdown can occur after an injury or as we age.
