Understanding Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is an all too prevalent degenerative joint disease that affects millions needlessly. It occurs when the protective cartilage cushioning at the ends of your bones wears down and degenerates over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling in the affected joints.

In its most advanced stage, OA can result in the complete loss of joint space, causing severe pain as the bones rub against each other. Early identification and treatment of OA are essential for maintaining a life of comfort and vitality.

At Regenerative MD, our team specialises in research-backed joint preservation and rejuvenation therapies for osteoarthritis. Our approach combines cutting-edge science with a healing environment to offer treatments that are not only effective but also promote your overall
well-being. Let us guide you on a path to renewed health and well-being.

Knee Osteoarthritis

Friction and overuse of the knee joint are unavoidable occurrences in our lives that can sometimes lead to knee osteoarthritis. This condition can affect anyone, and its incidence increases with age as years of use wears out the cartilage. Trauma, sports, and even poor alignment can contribute to knee degeneration, potentially causing significant disability and impacting the recreational activities we enjoy.

At Regenerative MD we specialise in the most advanced joint rejuvenation and preservation techniques available for knee osteoarthritis. In fact, regenerative biologic treatment for the knee
joint is the most well studied area of this fast emerging field. The latest evidence suggests that regenerative biologics (PRP) should actually be the first line of treatment strategy for knee OA
(insert reference), and is most effective when used in the early stages (insert reference).

Types of OA we typically treat:

  • Knee Joint
  • Shoulder Joint
  • Elbow Joint
  • Wrist/hand Joints
  • Facet Joints
  • Sacroiliac (SI) Joint
  • Ankle Joint
  • Small joints of the foot

Facet Osteoarthritis

Friction and wear-and-tear in the small joints that allow the spine to move can lead to facet joint osteoarthritis. This condition is often characterised by localised lower back pain, and can arise due to factors such as ageing and degenerative disc disease. Discomfort in the back that is truly from facet joint degeneration has been shown to have a remarkable response to regenerative biologics (insert reference).

Distinguishing facet joint discomfort from other forms of back pain can be challenging, but is crucial prior to engaging in any treatment strategy. At Regenerative MD, we are experts in advanced techniques for rejuvenating and preserving joints affected by facet osteoarthritis.
