One of the common diagnoses that patients have been given before they come to AROmotion is known as “bone on bone”. This refers to joint space narrowing.
However, many physicians who give this diagnosis don’t tell patients that this narrowing joint space is not the actual cause of their pain. When you have been diagnosed with “bone on bone”, the pain is actually coming from the protective cartilage in your joint deteriorating. This cartilage, called hyaline cartilage, which is found on the tips of the actual bones. When it starts to degenerate, the blood vessels and tiny nerves underneath that protective cartilage coating are exposed. Then every time you put pressure on them by rotating or moving the joint, inflammatory proteins are produced, which further increases the pressure in that area and causes you tremendous pain.
If you have received this diagnosis, and you are in pain, Dr. Haghighi and the board certified physicians at AROmotion offer you a free consultation to determine if you are a candidate for our nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatment.
