Degenerative Joint Disease

  • Understanding Degenerative Joint Disease

    Degenerative joint disease (otherwise known as osteoarthritis) has long been considered a normal part of the aging process.  After all, over 20 million Americans suffer from degenerative joint disease pain – but that doesn’t mean that you have to accept the pain that comes hand-in-hand with osteoarthritis.

    This joint disease impacts the cartilage within the spine, joints, and anywhere else where bone joints meet. The cartilage is comprised of a springy soft tissue that’s designed to absorb everyday impact, much like the shocks on a car. Cartilage also helps the bones effortlessly slide against each other, which minimizes any discomfort or pain.

    Degenerative joint disease causes a breakdown in the cartilage, which means that bones are more likely to rub against one another.  What’s more, a loss of cartilage makes it much more uncomfortable to move around, as your bones are experiencing more of the shocks that would have otherwise been absorbed by cartilage. The end result can produce the most common symptoms of degenerative joint disease, including the following:

    - Pain
    - Discomfort in the joint
    - Swelling of the joints
    - Joint stiffness
    - Loss of motion
    - A crunching sensation in the joints (bones rubbing against each other)
    - Decreased quality of life

    Surprisingly, research has shown that degenerative joint disease doesn’t have to be considered a “normal” part of the aging process.  The following risk factors are more likely to increase your odds of suffering from degenerative joint disease:

    - Genetics, or family history
    - Lack of exercise
    - Being overweight
    - History of joint injuries

  • Spinal Nerve Compression: What Is It, and How Can It Be Treated?

    Spinal nerve compression – otherwise known as spinal cord compression – is a condition that develops when there’s too much pressure being placed on your spinal cord.  As your spinal cord is comprised of a bunch of nerves that help pass information from your brain to your muscles, this means that the spine can be subject to nerve pain and discomfort due to injury, improper posture, or even the aging process.

    The symptoms of spinal nerve compression can be painful, and lead to a decrease in a person’s quality of life.  Some people may immediately experience symptoms, while others may not notice nerve pain or damage for several years.  Generally speaking, the symptoms of spinal nerve compression include the following:

    - Pain
    - Stiffness in the back, neck, or lower back
    - Burning pain, especially in the buttocks and legs
    - Tingling or loss of sensation in the feet
    - Numbness
    - Cramping in the hands and legs

    If you experience symptoms that include a loss of bladder control, severe numbness between the legs, and severe pain that makes it difficult to walk, it’s important to get medical attention right away (it’s recommended that you go to the emergency room).

    With regards to spinal nerve compression, the condition typically develops as a result of degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthritis.  This disease is usually thought to be a result of the aging process, but it actually can be a result of genetics, obesity, lack of exercise, and other risk factors.

    If left too long, spinal cord compression can only be treated via invasive surgery, which has high readmission factors.  That’s why if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it’s recommended that you seek out Posture Pump® therapeutic products first.

    Posture Pump® is a doctor-trusted online retailer that specializes in neck and back pain products which can treat the most common symptoms associated with spinal cord compression and degenerative joint disease.  Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can ease nerve pain.
