    January 17, 2019


    According to the American Osteopathic Association, over 30 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis, known as degenerative joint disease, is most common in individuals over the age of 45, but it can affect many people. Osteoarthritis commonly impacts the larger, weight bearing joints within your body such as the knees, hips, and ankles. Although many Americans suffer from osteoarthritis, many may not realize the cause of their pain.

    Here are some common warning signs to watch for:

    – Early morning stiffness

    – Frequent pain or tenderness in any joint

    – Inability to move a joint normally

    – Grating, grinding and cracking in joints

    – Back or neck pain

    Most patients who have osteoarthritis manage their pain through exercise and over the counter pain relievers. Patients who have long-term pain should consider asking their physician about a referral to a pain management specialist.

    The Three Rivers Health Pain Management Group team members and Dr. Orlando Landrum are trained to develop balanced treatment plans to help get you back to your daily life activities.

    If you are suffering from pain that you suspect is related to osteoarthritis, ask your physician about a referral to the Three Rivers Health Pain Management Group.
