If a person is having knee pain with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis, what are the treatment options available?
Some people think that surgery is the only option, but it is not valid. Treatment depends on the grade of osteoarthritis. Get your knee X-Ray done, if a patient’s knee condition is below Grade III (Kellgren-Lawrence), then he has a chance to preserve the knee and can avoid surgery. Alignment of bones and joints and the degree of deformity also play a significant role in selecting the best treatment.
Today, you can preserve your joint without any surgery; regenerative medicine is the best option where you don’t need an invasive procedure or any other foreign body implantation. Go for the joint preservation option before your knee degrades to Grade IV (severe).
There are some cells in our body that are capable enough to regenerate the cartilage, and the degeneration of this articular cartilage is the root cause of osteoarthritis. Regenerative medicine makes use of this capability of the cells and helps in the repair of articular cartilage.
Early diagnosis and cure will keep you away from invasive surgery.
But ignorance and negligence will lead to surgery.
If on your X-ray, knee condition is below Grade III, don’t wait for its further degradation, consult with your doctor and go for the right solution.
Once your knee has reached Grade IV, none of the joint preservation measures will help; you have only one option i.e., total knee arthroplasty.
