Degenerative Joint Disease

Do You Have Degenerative Joint Disease?
Do You Have Degenerative Joint Disease? Are you experiencing leg pain within your hip, knee, or ankle? The physicians and rehabilitation specialists at Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute can help.
You may be experiencing symptoms consistent with osteoarthritis, which is also known as degenerative joint disease. Degenerative joint disease (DJD) is the most common form of arthritis. This affects the cartilage lining the ends of your bones. Furthermore, the cartilage is a smooth surface that allows bones to glide easily upon one another. Also, it can also act as a shock absorber within your joints. With time, and wear and tear, the surface layer of cartilage can begin to break down leading to painful joints.
The physicians at JOI can help create an individualized plan that best suits your needs. If physical therapy is necessary, the rehab specialists at JOI can help maximize what your body will allow. This includes exercises to increase movement and strength around your joints. Furthermore, if you are experiencing leg pain, choose the team at JOI to provide the professional services you need.
