The new guidelines for treating knee osteoarthritis involve exercise and conservative management (according to the Osteoarthritis Research Society International 2018). What is osteoarthritis? Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common condition seen by GP’s and physiotherapists. It affects the articular cartilage and meniscus that protects the bone surfaces between the tibia, femur and patella. Over time, this cartilage can break down and wear. What are the risk factors? Age, increased body weight, previous history of joint trauma, family history and heavily physical occupations can contribute to OA. Common symptoms: ain and stiffness in the morning diculty using the stairs, pain with prolonged walking and standing, joint swelling, clicking and locking are some of the symptoms of joint osteoarthritis. How is it treated? Knee OA is a chronic condition, and symptoms can uctuate over time depending on activity. There is good evidence that physiotherapy, education and modification o activities can be as effective as arthroscopy (key JOHN BYRNES & ASSOC.

G G G Wednesday 11 April, 2018 THE WEEKLY TIMES 13 Seniors Festival 2018 I m p lant innovation: D ental im p lants and r eg ener ation, m inu s the discom f or t and post-surgical side effects THERE was a time when having dental implants was an unpleasant experience, causing discomfort, swelling and time o work for days or even weeks with postsurgical issues. Now, a select group of dentists in Australia offer an alternative. The revolutionary All-On-4 procedure is a great alternative to dentures or deteriorated teeth. It uses four titanium dental implants to anchor the teeth in the upper and lower aw. This provides a strong foundation for prosthetic teeth, which are added afterwards to complete this permanent procedure. Your entire treatment is done while you sleep. To aid speedy regeneration and recovery the procedure is ideally complemented by the latest in stem cell technology which can also be used on single implants, reducing healing time by hal. State-of-the art stem cell technology is based on obtaining a concentration of healing proteins derived rom your own blood. These growth factor proteins have biological activity which not only stimulate the acceleration of tissue regeneration and healing but also reduces inammation pain and the risk of infection or post-surgical complication. When we suffer an in- ury the human body’s natural response is to release proteins that stimulate the process of repairing that in- ury. At Chatswood Dental Centre we isolate and concentrate these growth factors rom the patient’s own blood placing it in the area where we need it so we can deliver you a uicker recovery. This pioneering, scientifically supported process is 100 per cent biocompatible versatile and sae. When used in conjunction with dental implants, the plasma concentrate creates a much more avourable biological environment for osseointegration as a protein interface is achieved that ast tracks bone healing significantly increasing the success rate. Dr Anthony Wasserman rom Chatswood Dental Centre says “Since starting to incorporate the concentrated plasma in our regenerative and implant cases, our results have been eceptional. It has assisted us to achieve great results in both tissue and bone regeneration with minimal post-operative complications and higher success rates. The accelerated wound healing, combined with decreased discomfort, without any side effects has really differentiated us from other implantologists in our region. Chatswood Dental Centre is at the forefront of the dental industry with a comprehensive dentistry program. isit To atend an upcoming seminar phone Chatswood Dental Centre on 912-380.

West Ryde family appeal for cat A West Ryde family has desperately appealed to readers of The Weekly Times to find an owner for a lost little cat, pictured. Jeanette and Aaron Standley o Gaa Road recently ound the cat - named Maggie May - under a car but despite a desperate search her home and owner remains a mystery. She is a small black cat with green eyes who came running up to us from under a car on a very hot December day they told The Weekly Times.. She was hungry and thirsty and we brought her food and water and we took her to West Ryde et Clinic where she was checked. We are members o the World League for Protection of Animals at Gladesville and we put up posters with her photo all around West Ryde and Meadowbank searching or her owner and had no response. She is only about one year old and is very lively and wants to play all day. Do you Have Sleep Apnoea? We would love to keep her but we have three other cats we live in a townhouse, and she chases our cats around. She is loving and we would love or someone to adopt her. We have toys and ood and kitty litter or her if someone would like her. To adopt her contact the amily on 01 827 628 . •A ccredited S pecial ists in W E x pert A dv ice in W il l s, E n durin g P ower of A ttorn ey, A ppoin tmen t of E n du uardian s, •A ccredited S pecial ists in W il l s & E state L aw E x pert C•A E A dv ompl state ccredited P ice in imen l an n in W il l s, E tary g n durin S , Rpecial ev W iewin g P il ower l s ists g f of or R etiremen A ttorn in S en W ey, ior il Al s t ppoin CV & il itiz l ag tmen E state e en A g t of s reemen E * n L durin aw ts a g E x uardian pert A dv s, ice E state in A W g P iled l an l s, n EC in n are g durin R esiden , R ev g iewin P ower cy g R of A A g ttorn reemen t ey, V il l ag A ts *Non-complex Wills for Senior Citizens over ppoin e A 65 g reemen tmen years t ts of an E nd duri * Please uardian contact s, E state our office PA lg ed n Cin to are g , speak R R ev esiden iewin to cy Lucille g AR getiremen reemen Lees, ts t Accredited V il l ag e A g reemen Specialist ts an and upon production of ID * Please contact our A office g ed C to are speak R esiden to Lucille cy ALees, g reemen Accredited ts Specialist * Please contact our office to speak to Lucille Lees, Accredited Specialist •A ccredited S pecial ists in F amil y L aw To take advantage •A of this S pecial offer please ists in telephone F amil y L our aw office on P roperty, R esiden ce, C on tact, D e- f acto rel ation ships an d D iv orce 98 1 6 P 1 roperty, 1 2 2 •Abefore Rccredited esiden 1 ce, 6 A C pril on Stact, 2 pecial 0 1 D 8 e- f acto ists make rel ation in an ships F appointment amil an d y D L iv aw orce and * Please * Please contact P roperty, contact our R esiden our office office to ce, Cto speak speak tact, to to D Lucille Lucille e- f acto Lees, Lees, rel ation Accredited Accredited ships Specialist Specialist please mention this advertisement. an d D iv orce * Please contact our office to speak to Lucille Lees, Accredited Specialist •S pecial isin g in C on v eyan cin g an d P roperty T ran saction s We can also offer assistance with Enduring Powers of A ttorney, S al es an S d al es purchase an d purchase of property, C S trata T itl e, P urchasin g f rom P l a •S pecial of isin property, g in C C on ommercial v eyan cin premises, g an d PS trata roperty T itl e, T P ran urchasin saction g f r A * ppointments Speak to our licensed of Enduring conveyancer Guardian, Lauren Dennis Estate about your Planning sale or purchase and * S Speak al es an to d purchase our licensed of property, conveyancer C ommercial Lauren premises, Dennis about S trata your T itl e, sale P urchasin or purchas g f ro contesting Wills P hon e: 981 6 1 1 22 P L hon ucil le: e J 981 L ees 6 1 1 22 Lucille J Lees, A ccredited Specialist Lucille J Lees, il l s & Lucille E state J Lees, A ccredited Specialist L aw A ccredited Specialist •S pecial isin g in C on v eyan cin g an d P roperty T ran sacti * Speak to our licensed conveyancer Lauren Dennis about your sale or purchase P hon e: 981 6 1 1 22 Lucille J Lees, A ccredited Specialist 243 V ictoria R oad, G L A D E S V I L L E N S W 21 1 1 A ccredited 243 V E mail : in f o@ l eesan dg iv n 243 ictoria Specialist V ictoria R oad, in R oad, Wills G L G A& L D Estate A E D S E V S I V LLaw I L L L E E and N N S S F W W amily 21 21 1 1Law 1 1 E mail Please also E see mail : in f our : o@ in website: f o@ l eesan l eesan dg dg iv iv n n P hon e: 981 6 1 1 22 Please Please also also see see our our website: 243 V ictoria R oad, G L A D E S V I L L E N S W 21 1 1 E mail : in f o@ l eesan dg iv n Please Benefit from our local knowledge experience Please also also see see our our website website: Benefit from our local knowledge and experience Benefit from our local knowledge and experience Benefit from our local knowledge and experience RISK FACTORS Family History Overweight Thick Neck Aging Medications Deviated Septum Enlarged Tongue Enlarged Tonsils SYMPTOMS Waking up Gasping Air Snoring Fatigue Morning Headaches Irritability Sore/Dry Throat Nocturia MAY CAUSE Heart Failure Stroke Hypertension Diabetes Death Depression Motor Accidents Impotence Sleep Screen Available at Chatswood Dental Centre Chatswood Dental Centre is at the forefront of the dental industry with a comprehensive dentistry programme.
