Frequently Asked Questions

Osteoarthritis (OA)

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis, causing joints to feel stiff and painful. It primarily affects older adults but can also occur in younger individuals, especially following a joint injury. OA can cause joints to swell, change shape, and produce creaking or cracking noises.

The symptoms of osteoarthritis vary widely. Some people experience little to no pain, while others endure severe pain that makes movement difficult. Muscle loss around the affected joints can also occur, leading to weakness. While almost any joint can develop osteoarthritis, the most commonly affected areas are the fingers, thumbs, knees, hips, lower back, and neck.

Osteoarthritis can be caused by a combination of factors, including ageing, joint injuries, repetitive stress on the joints, obesity, and genetic predisposition. Wear and tear on the cartilage over time contributes to the development of osteoarthritis.

Regenerative tissue medicines, such as those offered by Arthregen, are innovative treatments designed to repair damaged cartilage, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the affected joints. By stimulating the body’s natural regenerative processes, these therapies can help alleviate pain and improve joint function.
