Arthritis

Manage Pain, Move More Easily 

Arthritis can make it difficult to walk, clean your house, or take part in fun activities with family and friends. It can even rob you of a good night’s sleep. But arthritis doesn’t have to slow you down. Our health care providers can relieve your symptoms, improve your mobility, and limit the damage to your joints.

When you have arthritis, your joints become inflamed, swollen, and painful. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It’s important to know which type you have so your health care provider can offer the right treatment.

Your family doctor will work with rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, occupational and physical therapists, and other specialists skilled in diagnosing and treating arthritis to help ensure that all your health needs are met.

Treatments may include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Pain relievers
  • Exercise and physical therapy
  • Joint protection

If surgery is necessary to treat damaged joints, our board-certified surgeons perform thousands of joint replacements, such as hip and knee replacements, each year. We also offer rehabilitation services, including physical and occupational therapy.

If you're experiencing difficulty with your joints, make an appointment with one of our specialists. Call 888-847-8823.
