Is chronic joint pain interfering with your daily life? You may have osteoarthritis, a common condition often associated with the aging process. Also known as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis develops as the cushioning cartilage that protects the ends of the bones in a joint gradually breaks down and wears away. Weight-bearing joints, such as the feet, knees, hips, and spine, are most frequently affected, although osteoarthritis can potentially occur in any joint. The damage can cause varying degrees of pain, stiffness, and swelling.

Although there is currently no cure for wear-and-tear arthritis, there are effective ways to manage the symptoms and protect the damaged joint. You can explore your osteoarthritis treatment options with an orthopedic specialist at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in Louisville, Kentucky. Our highly specialized, board-certified physicians, physical therapists, and other medical professionals deliver individualized care in a state-of-the-art setting.

How Can Osteoarthritis Be Treated?

At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, we work closely with each osteoarthritis patient to develop a tailored treatment regimen. For instance, many people find that their symptoms improve when they regularly engage in low-impact exercise, which can strengthen the muscles that support a damaged joint, allowing the muscles to take on some of the force that the joint would otherwise endure. Some good options include cycling, swimming, and yoga. An added benefit of regular physical activity is that it can promote weight loss, which can reduce the pressure on large joints that help support the body’s weight. Other types of osteoarthritis treatment include:

  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Cortisone injections
  • Joint replacement surgery (for severe symptoms that do not respond to conservative osteoarthritis treatment)

In addition to osteoarthritis, Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic treats a wide variety of sports injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions, including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, bursitis, meniscal tears, rotator cuff injuries, and tendonitis.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
