Osteoarthritis Information

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis caused by osteoporosis. It is also the most common joint pain condition in the United States, including worldwide. It is estimated by studies that more than 21 million suffer from OA in either one or both of their knees. This pain is often severe and puts severe strain posture which can lead to other types of arthritis, as well.

In cases of OA the cartilage surrounding the joints in the knee slowly wears away and the fluid there called synovial fluid loses its ability to absorb shock. Bones begin to rub against one another causing pain and discomfort and even stiffness and inability to move the joints at all. The stages of OA are mild, moderate, and severe. It is up to your physician to determine the level of osteoarthritis present in your condition.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis such as pain and stiffness and depending on the level of pain can also help determine the stage at which your osteoarthritis has reached. X-rays will be definitive in showing the amount of wear on the joints and bones in the knees. Cartilage wear is also a large factor in the determining the level of severity your OA has reached. There are many ways to also prevent knee pain associated with OA along with the help of Synvisc-One

Many health care professionals all state the same thing: putting stress on your knees can cause larger problems. Many factors such as weight and strenuous exercise are the key factors in knee pain. Keeping a healthy weight is essential in order to prevent pain from OA and also from making the condition worse. Synvisc-One can only relieve the pain for up to six months, but it relies on other factors. People who are obese or overweight cause the most wear on the cartilage and joints in the knees which lessens the chances of Synvisc-One lasting to its optimal potential. There are many ways that knee pain can be eliminated even with Synvisc-One.

Exercising is important to everyone, but more importantly as you age and become more prone to arthritis, osteoporosis, and other age related health problems. Maintaining a healthy weight, eating right, and walking are just a few great ways that all doctors recommend for those suffering from OA. In conjunction with Synvisc one, these things enable the injection to work as its maximum potential and last longer than people who do not do any of these things. Overall health affects the entire body, especially those with OA.
