DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

aka OSTEOARTHRITIS and DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE

As we age, injuries that were sustained in earlier years seem to effect us more and more. Accidents, fall, and general bumps throughout life create an unstable situation in joint - especially of the spine. This is a gradual condition marked by the degeneration of cartilage of the joints. When the body is out of proper alignment, it will sense an altered state of structure and try to stabilize the best it can.

Since bone is one of the strongest substances in the body, the natural tendency is to create extra bone formation to stabilize an otherwise unstable area. This will produce bony prominences that may pinch on nerves, create cricks in the spine and reduce joint play and overall flexibility. Dr. Kimberly Woudsma is best qualified to assess your spine for these instabilities and correct them before they become debilitating.
