  • degeneration
  • Joint degeneration does not happen suddenly, and identifying a progressive problem and reversing this degeneration is very important to avoid a very stressful and debilitating outcome. (acupunctureintegrated.com)
  • Restoration of healthy joint and disc tissues is possible, and unless these underlying factors are addressed, large studies show that even surgery may not prevent the continuing degeneration, and prosthetic joints will also degenerate, and cannot be regrown like human tissue.

  • hard
