Managing Arthritis Pain: Specialized Care at Our Clinic

Arthritis is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the joints. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and managing arthritis, offering comprehensive treatment options to help our patients find relief from pain and improve their quality of life.

Understanding Arthritis

Arthritis is a term used to describe inflammation of the joints, and it encompasses more than 100 different types of joint disorders. The most common forms of arthritis include:

Osteoarthritis: This is the most common form of arthritis and occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones wears down over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling in the affected joints.

Rheumatoid arthritis: This is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the lining of the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and joint damage.

Psoriatic arthritis: This form of arthritis occurs in some people with the skin condition psoriasis and can cause joint pain, swelling, and stiffness, along with skin and nail changes.

Gout: Gout is a type of arthritis characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, redness, and swelling in the joints, often affecting the big toe.

Symptoms of Arthritis

The symptoms of arthritis can vary depending on the type and severity of the condition but often include:

Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling

Reduced range of motion

Joint deformities


Warmth and redness in the affected joints

Difficulty with daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs, or gripping objects

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer a variety of treatment options for arthritis to help our patients manage pain, reduce inflammation, and improve joint function. Treatment may include:

Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), and biologic agents may be prescribed to help reduce pain and inflammation and slow the progression of the disease.

Physical therapy: A customized physical therapy program may be recommended to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the affected joints, as well as to teach proper body mechanics and joint protection techniques.

Joint injections: Corticosteroid injections or viscosupplementation injections (hyaluronic acid) may be administered directly into the affected joint to help reduce pain and improve mobility.

Assistive devices: The use of assistive devices such as braces, splints, or orthotics may help support and stabilize affected joints, reducing pain and improving function.

Lifestyle modifications: Making changes to your diet, exercise routine, and daily habits can help manage arthritis symptoms and improve overall health and well-being.

Surgery: In severe cases of arthritis that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical interventions such as joint replacement surgery may be necessary to repair or replace damaged joints.
