Joints connect the bones in our body and enable us to move freely and actively. Inflammation in the joints leads to a highly painful condition called arthritis, which affects both men and women and is common among people aged 60 or more. Arthritis can be very painful and make it difficult for the person to walk or stand for long. Eventually, a person affected by arthritis may not be able to move at all, due to constant pain and stiffness in the joints.
Pain management is an effective way to deal with arthritis, which does not have a definitive cure. Don’t let this degenerative joint disease take your life away from you. Talk to the Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute experts today.
What Causes Arthritis?
Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease that results in damaged joints. Different kinds of damage can cause different types of arthritis. While there are over 100 different forms of arthritis, the most common ones are as follows:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disease that affects the outer cover of the joint capsule
- Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis that results in wear and tear of the joint cartilage
- Lupus, a collagen vascular disorder
- Gout, which occurs when uric acid crystals get deposited in the joints, resulting in inflammation. Regardless of what type of arthritis affects you, joint pains and difficulty in moving are the common symptoms you will experience.
How Do We Diagnose & Treat Arthritis?
Pinpointing the exact type of arthritis that may have affected you is possible only through tests and diagnostic procedures. If you are suspected to have arthritis, our doctors will recommend a series of laboratory tests that can help in accurate diagnosis of the condition. Imaging and other diagnostic procedures such as an MRI and an ultrasound may also be recommended for further analysis and to determine the appropriate course of treatment.
Through the diagnostic procedures and treatment, our friendly medical supervisors will be there with you to answer any questions you may have and address all of your concerns during your stay.
