What We Treat


The word arthritis means inflamed joint. In modern day medicine, arthritis is used to describe a group of diseases affecting joints of the body. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, and stiffness of the joints.  Arthritis can affect one or many joints over time, depending on the particular type.  Symptoms may be constant or intermittent and can last a long time.

A diagnosis of arthritis does not mean that a patient has to suffer chronic pain.  There are many treatment options to slow the progression of the disease and lessen pain.  Therapeutic treatments, such as physical therapy, medications and injections, can improve the quality of life.
