Degenerative Arthritis

Degenerative Arthritis, also known as Osteoarthritis, is a condition that occurs when the protective cartilage in joints begins to wear down over time. This can lead to bone-on-bone friction, inflammation, and pain. The condition is most common in the hands, hips, knees, and spine.

Causes

The exact cause of Degenerative Arthritis is not known, but it may be related to aging, genetics, injury, or wear and tear on the joints. Certain risk factors, such as obesity, previous joint injuries, and repetitive stress, can also increase the likelihood of developing Degenerative Arthritis.

Common Issues

Degenerative Arthritis can cause chronic pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the affected joint. Over time, the condition can worsen and lead to joint deformity and disability.

Treatment Options

At Texas Spine & Pain, we offer a range of treatment options to manage Degenerative Arthritis symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Medications: Certain medications can help manage Degenerative Arthritis symptoms, such as pain relievers, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and corticosteroids.

Physical therapy: Exercise and physical therapy techniques can help reduce pain and improve joint mobility.

Joint injections: PRP Injection into joint.

Surgical Treatment Options

If non-surgical treatments are not effective, surgery may be recommended. Joint replacement surgery can replace the damaged joint with a prosthetic joint, which can improve mobility and reduce pain.



Recovery and Rehabilitation

Recovery from Degenerative Arthritis treatment varies depending on the severity of the symptoms and the treatment approach used. Our team of experts will work with you to create a personalized recovery and rehabilitation plan to ensure the best possible outcome.

Dr. Iqbal is the best pain management doctor I have ever had and will have. She does her homework first which I think makes the difference in diagnosis. She is the total package, a very smart and beautiful doctor, wife, and mother. Hand on Bible she changed my life, and I will forever be in debt to her. I can't say thank you enough. I appreciate her staff; they are all awesome as well. I laughed and cried in her office, but her smile and staff always made me feel welcome like part of their family. I would and will drive across country to see her. The referral to a new knee surgeon to fix a bad knee replacement was the best. I got a new knee, and it has been a huge blessing as well. Thank you, Dr. Iqbal and staff you all are 5 stars, in my life.

I visited this facility in January for severe back pain I was experiencing. The whole ordeal from beginning to end was amazing. I wish I had known about this place years ago before suffering from so much pain. Dr. Mehreen Iqbal, her assistant Michealle Dooley and their staff is the best. I had a procedure done on 1/17/24 and I no longer suffer from back pain and I'm able to walk again. I highly recommend this facility, 10 Stars!!!

My PCP recommended Dr. Mehreen and she was wonderful through out the entire injection process. She took her time explaining everything and was patient through out the process. In my opinion, she is the best pain management doc around.
