CHARLOTTE, NC, July 08, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- An estimated 30 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It's a painful, often debilitating, a condition caused when the cartilage or cushion between our joints breaks down, leaving bone to rub on bone. Osteoarthritis is a leading cause of hospitalization, resulting in over 600,000 joint replacement surgeries annually.
Baby boomers want to stay active, but there is an added factor to developing osteoarthritis from prior injuries. You have an increased risk of developing arthritis from injuries, such as a cartilage tear in the knee, even minor ones, in your 20s or 30s.
Once osteoarthritis sets in, common treatments include over-the-counter pain relievers, prescription medications, physical therapy, or chiropractic adjustments—none help improve the joint's quality. When the pain gets too great, the last option is joint replacement.
For years, orthopedic surgeons have used regenerative medicine, such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), to help patients recover faster. As the field of regenerative medicine has grown, experienced physicians are emerging.
Dr. James Altizer, MD, is a board-certified medical doctor who has performed thousands of stem cell and PRP procedures since January 2016, making him the most experienced doctor in the Carolinas.
Osteoarthritis and Regenerative Medicine Treatment
Typically, traditional osteoarthritis treatment aims to control the symptoms and cover up the pain until it's too late to save the joint. Dr. Altizer treats underlying arthritis by stimulating the body's natural healing process using regenerative medicine.
Regenerative medicine deals with the process of replacing or regenerating human cells or tissues to restore normal function naturally. This new therapeutic strategy helps prevent osteoarthritis from advancing by stimulating tissue regeneration in the joints and reducing inflammation, which leads to a significant reduction in pain and improved physical activity levels.
