Non-Invasive Treatments for Osteoarthritis Pain
Osteoarthritis is diagnosed when cartilage at the ends of bones has become worn down by wear and tear and/or the aging process. Healthy cartilage acts as a shock absorber for joints, as bones move against one another or are affected by daily activities. Knees and hips are especially vulnerable to osteoarthritis. Once diagnosed, patients should make extra accommodations to prevent further knee or hip injury from occurring.
