About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that can cause the cartilage of your joints to break down. Osteoarthritis is a common condition, affecting millions, especially the aging population.

The onset of osteoarthritis is most commonly due to chronic overuse of joints in your everyday life or a previous injury that did not heal properly.

Arthritic joints often become painful and extremely stiff, preventing a full range of motion and normal movements.

To be certain of the cause of your osteoarthritis, contact the orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine experts at Westchester Sport and Spine for specific diagnosis of your pain.

Osteoarthritis Pain Treatment Options

Osteoarthritis can be effectively treated with non-invasive procedures such as medications, bracing, injections and therapy. More often than not, surgery is not necessary to treat osteoarthritis.

If surgical intervention is necessary, the sports medicine specialists and orthopedic doctors at Westchester Sport and Spine are experts in the latest minimally invasive procedures.

The main treatment options for your osteoarthritis include:

  • Avoiding activities that make your symptoms worse
