Semaglutide Injections for weight loss
Better known as Ozempic/Wegovy. This is heavily advertised on television by the brand name
Ozempic or Wegovy but the injectable we are offering is a generic bio-identical version of these
drugs. If you are looking to lose weight easily with minimal effort, this weight management
treatment is right for you and we would love to invite you into one of our Southwest Florida
locations for a medical weight loss consultation.
YOUR JOURNEY TO WEIGHT LOSS STARTS NOW
We, at Physicians Rehabilitation, have always taken a multi-modality approach to treating chronic joint pain and osteoarthritis by offering various types of injection therapies, physical therapy, bracing, and interventional pain management, but now we are also offering medical weight loss options to help you with your long-term health goals. We are focused on not only helping you to gain mobility, improve your strength, and to live a pain-free lifestyle, but also getting you to look and feel your best!
Yes, there are many available therapies to treat chronic joint pain from osteoarthritis such as oral anti-inflammatory medications, injectable steroids, hyaluronic acid treatments, and physical therapy, but one of the best treatment options for long-term pain relief is weight loss. As you lose weight, the pressure on the joints lessens and inflammation decreases, leading to less pain.
Degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis and overweight all go hand in hand.
Degenerative joint disease is a term used to describe the “wear and tear“ that occurs to a joint. This includes damage and loss of cartilage (which lines and protects your bones), changes in bone composition such as sclerosis and spurring, and damage to ligaments and other soft tissues in the joint. Osteoarthritis is a term to describe the pain and inflammation that occurs from the damage to the joint, which can become a chronic problem. Being overweight can exacerbate osteoarthritis and can expedite the degeneration of a joint, especially weight-bearing joints, like the knees, hips, and ankles. For every pound of excess weight carried, 4 pounds of extra pressure is applied to a weight bearing joint. For example, if you are 10 pounds overweight, that equates to 40 extra pounds of pressure that is applied to the knees. Having your joints, like your knees, absorb all that extra pressure over time can cause significant and irreversible damage to the joints.
