Degenerative joint disease, also known as osteoarthritis is due to the loss of articular cartilage within your joints. The articular cartilage is the cushioning that is present at the ends of our bones. When we mature or finish growing, that cartilage is fairly thick, it is firm and rubbery … and smoother than glass. For many reasons we start to lose the strength and flexibility of our cartilage or we may suffer an injury which causes us to lose the same. Articular Degenerative Disease treatment includes back education and back school exercise, medications, physical modalities, and injections.Treatments and recommendations vary depending on how severe your pain is, your age, your activity level, and any other medical problems you may have. Initially there may be joint stiffness, usually lasting more than 15 minutes, and typically following any activity of the joint. Later you may feel pain when you move the affected joint, which can become worse with activity or carrying weights but relieved by rest. Typically OA improves with rest and does not remain symptomatic at night time. It is usually better in the morning, and it worsens as the day progresses. OA is not usually associated with inflammation, although swelling of the joint does frequently occur in OA. This type of arthritis is called osteoarthritis, OA, degenerative joint disease, DJD, or osteoarthrosis. Other forms of arthritis (rheumatoid, degenerative arthritis, post-traumatic, and other inflammatory disorders) frequently may lead to OA as the end-stage, making differentiation difficult. The orthopedic surgeon may suggest surgery as a treatment called arthroscopy. An arthroscopy refers to the “scope” to “clean out” an arthritic joint. The results are typically poor, and the research is fairly clear that arthroscopy has a very limited role in management of degenerative joint disease.
