What Causes Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is one of several types of arthritis. The other two most common types include psoriatic and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis primarily affects the fingers, knees, shoulders, and hips. This condition is caused by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. This breakdown can occur after an injury or as we age. It’s common for elders to be affected by this condition.
Treatment for Osteoarthritis
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) uses growth factors extracted from your blood to heal your body. The treatment begins with a routine blood draw and placing the blood sample into a centrifuge machine. There, the blood is spun, and the growth factors are separated. Once separated, they are injected into the joints that are causing you pain. This process can typically be done in less than an hour, providing much-needed relief.
What Results Can I Expect?
A single session can provide you with some relief from your condition. However, several sessions may be necessary to sustain results. While osteoarthritis can’t be cured, CIT can alleviate symptoms and help you regain your comfort and mobility. Dr. Aronowitz can discuss the process in greater depth and set up a treatment schedule during your initial consultation.
