A certified physical therapist and nutritionist, Dr. Grace Walker is also a registered occupational therapist. Dr. Grace Walker offers care through the Walker Physical Therapy and Pain Center in Orange, California. As the owner and principal therapist, she provides treatment for outpatient disorders, such as joint pains, and rehabilitation for sports injuries.

The Walker Physical Therapy and Pain Center utilizes advanced technologies to care for tendonitis, back pain, arthritis, carpel tunnel syndrome, and bursitis. Among the equipment available to treat joint pains is the ML830 laser.

Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, the ML830 is a cold laser that repairs injured tissues by sending photons of light directly to the affected area. The light penetrates two inches into the body without affecting blood, fat, or skin. It then stimulates cells to encourage rapid repair of tissues. Following a treatment with the ML830 laser, patients generally notice less inflammation and pain. At the same time, tissues become stronger, and with proper preventive measures, a person can keep pain from returning.

An Explanation of Osteoarthritis

The owner of Walker Physical Therapy and Pain Center, Dr.Grace Walker brings over 35 years of experience to her work as an occupational and physical therapist, consultant, and lecturer. As part of her work, Grace Walker treats a number of ailments that cause lower back pain, including sprains, strains, disc issues, and arthritis.

A joint condition, osteoarthritis causes the cartilage that protects bones from rubbing against one another to wear down and start degenerating. Over time, this can lead to back pain, the development of bone spurs, and osteophytes, which are bony growths that form around the affected joints as they become more damaged.

The condition predominantly affects those over the age of 45, though younger people can also experience it if they have injured their spines or have a genetic defect. The pain experienced varies depending on the patient and severity of the condition, with most finding that the symptoms are relieved when they lie down.

Even so, because osteoarthritis restricts flexibility, it can prevent people from doing simple daily tasks. In addition to the pain associated with the condition, some find that the frustration caused by this lack of mobility can lead to other issues, such as depression and anxiety.
