Arthritis Q & A

What are the symptoms of arthritis?

When you have arthritis, you already know about the inflammation and joint pain associated with the condition. What you may not have realized is that arthritis can manifest in other signs and symptoms, including joint:

  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Aching
  • Limited range of motion
  • Redness

These arthritis symptoms result from a degeneration of the cartilage (slippery tissue that covers the ends of your bones) in your joint. In rheumatoid arthritis, the lining of your joint, called the synovium, is attacked, leading to severe inflammation.

What causes arthritis?

Osteoarthritis, the most common form of the disease, results from wear-and-tear to your joint, which slowly deteriorates your cartilage. After some time, the cartilage disappears, and the ends of your bones begin to grind against one another.

Osteoarthritis can be caused by injury, repetitive movements, or as a result of aging. 

Rheumatoid arthritis, the second most common form of the condition, is an autoimmune disorder that involves your immune system attacking the lining inside your joint, causing inflammation, pain, and, in progressed cases, deformity.

The root cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown.

How is arthritis treated?

Arthritis is a chronic condition and has no cure, but your doctor at Advanced Medical Physicians can manage your symptoms and, perhaps, slow the disease’s progression. Depending on where your arthritis is located and the severity of your symptoms, they may suggest a range of treatments, including:

Regenerative Medicine

With cutting-edge regenerative medicine, the Advanced Medical Physicians practice uses your body’s natural healing mechanisms to reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, and restore function in your joints. In some cases, this enhanced healing process can even regenerate tissue, healing the joint and reducing the need for surgical intervention.

Regenerative rehabilitation

By using state-of-the-art technologies, the practice takes a multidimensional approach to regenerative rehabilitation. By combining the latest breakthroughs in regenerative medicine with traditional approaches like chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage, and physical therapy, they work to address the root cause of your problem, not just manage your arthritis symptoms.

Adjunctive therapies

Through specific therapies, traditionally done by chiropractors, you may find arthritis relief. The Advanced Medical Physicians offers treatments like:

  • Ultrasounds
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Gentle adjustments
  • Electrotherapy
  • Impulse therapy
