TREAT HIP & KNEE PAIN
Hip arthritis is the loss of the normal healthy cartilage that allows smooth, painless motion of the hip joint. Without normal cartilage, the rough underlying bone rubs against bone causing inflammation and pain. This worsens over time to cause stiffness, osteophyte or bone spur formation and even wearing away of the underlying bone.
Similar to hip arthritis, knee arthritis is the wearing away of normal healthy cartilage of the knee. Loss of this cartilage causes the rough underlying bone to rub against bone and cause inflammation and pain. The knee often wears more on one side of the joint which can lead to the knee bowing out or in.
