Degenerative Joint Disease Treatment in India

Degenerative Joint Disease most commonly known as osteoarthritis is a painful degenerative condition that results in the deterioration of cartilage tissues that support the weight-bearing joints in the body. Once the cartilage is thinned or lost, the constant grinding of bones against each other causes pain and stiffness around the joint . Abnormal and excess bone formations called spurs grow from the damaged bones, causing further pain and stiffness. Statistics show that degenerative joint disease affects 80% of people over the age of 60.

Causes for Degenerative Disc Disease

In most patients, degenerative disc disease will develop slowly over time. When degenerative disc disease develops slowly over time, it is usually caused by repeated daily stresses and minor injuries to the discs in the spine. Daily stresses involve activities like minimal impact sports and lifting and carrying heavy objects. Minor injuries to the disc may occur and not cause pain at the time of the injury.
