Although there are numerous kinds of arthritis, the arthritis treatment in Richland addresses osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, the two most prevalent types. The common arthritis symptoms of pain and stiffness are usually caused by degenerative joint arthritis (osteoarthritis) while rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive disease with symptoms of tender, stiff, and swollen joints. RA often starts in smaller joints, like fingers, and gradually progresses to larger joint structures. Patients suffering from arthritis can benefit from many aspects of arthritis management. Our experts will treat your arthritis pain and assist you with improved joint function, increased muscle strength, and an improved fitness level. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. It is a condition we have vast experience treating. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of the fingers and the bases of the thumb and big toe. In healthy joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. This cartilage allows the joint to smoothly glide during movement and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. As OA worsens over time, bones may break down and develop growths called bone spurs.
Our office will work with you to develop an arthritis treatment in Richland for your specific arthritis condition. We will provide information to help you understand how the disease develops, how it is diagnosed and what can be done to reduce your painful inflammation and stiffness. Our rehabilitation is a hands-on form of care and relies on your participation and effort. It involves exercising, rest, heat, electrical stimulation, aquatic therapy, learning how to care for sore and swollen joints, and figuring out ways to minimize the stress on your joints. Let our compassionate team of experts help you get back in the game.
