In-Depth Muscular Balance Evaluation

Eliminate Stiffness, Improve Mobility, Decrease the Adverse Effects of Arthritis

An Unbalanced Body Leads To Osteoarthritis
THE PROBLEM: Documented scientific research shows that muscle imbalances lead to functional joint impingement. Over time, improper biomechanics can wear down joints and inflammation develops. This is one of the leading causes of osteoarthritis.

    BIOGRAPHYDr. David Felson, who has received the Osteoarthritis Research Society International’s Lifetime Achievement Award, states that the two main issues when treating osteoarthritis are the mechanical component and inflammation. Mechanical injury can come from weak muscles and old injuries. (Nutrition Action October 2017, pg 3)Medicare spends several billions of dollars a year on knee replacements for its beneficiaries, and the demand for total knee and hip replacements are growing significantly.The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which affects an estimated 31 million Americans.
    According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States. This number is expected to be two million annually by the year 2030. The average hospital charge for a total knee replacement (TKR) in the United States is $49,500. A partial knee replacement (PKR) typically costs about 10 to 20 percent less than a TKR.According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 300,000 total hip replacements are performed each year in the United States. For patients without health insurance, a total hip replacement usually will cost between $31,839 and $44,816.
