What is arthritis?

People often refer to their joint pain simply as “arthritis,” but there are actually more than 100 different kinds of arthritis and related conditions. The most common type is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative condition that causes the cartilage on the ends of bones to gradually break down. Without the protection of cartilage, the bones begin rubbing directly against one another, causing pain and other unpleasant symptoms. Some other common types of arthritis are psoriatic arthritis (an inflammatory condition affecting some people with psoriasis) and rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disorder that develops when the immune system attacks the lining of joints).

What are the symptoms of arthritis?

Symptoms will vary depending on the type of arthritis and how far the condition has progressed. With that being said, some of the most common symptoms of arthritis include:

  • Decreased range of motion
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Warmth

Patients with psoriatic arthritis may experience a number of additional symptoms, including conjunctivitis, foot pain, lower back pain, and nail pitting.

How is arthritis treated?

Doctors often recommend that arthritis patients begin treatment using conservative techniques, which may include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Exercise
  • Heat/cold therapy
  • Pain medication
  • Periodic rest
  • Physical therapy

In some severe cases, however, joint repair or replacement surgery may be required to relieve the symptoms of arthritis.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"
