FAQ

What is arthritis?2018-12-31T13:32:18-04:00

Arthritis is a medical condition characterized by joint inflammation. It’s a common condition that affects many adults. The different types of arthritis include:

  • OA
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout
  • Psoriatic arthritis
What is Osteoarthritis?2018-12-31T13:36:13-04:00

OA, or osteoarthritis, is one of the most common forms of arthritis that develops from the wear and tear of life that leads to the thinning of the protective cartilage in-between your bones. It tends to occur as you get older and is more common in women. Excess weight and genetics may increase your risk of developing OA.

OA can affect any joint in your body, but it most commonly causes symptoms in the hips, hands, knees, and spine.

How do I know I have osteoarthritis?2018-12-31T13:46:20-04:00

Common symptoms of OA include:

  • Joint pain and tenderness
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Feeling stiff, especially after waking in the morning
  • A grating sensation as your joints rub together

You may also develop bone spurs, which create hard lumps around your joints.

How is osteoarthritis managed?2019-02-12T23:56:40-04:00

There is no cure for OA, but the team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine may be able to help manage your symptoms to improve your quality of life.

Common treatments for OA include:

  • Anti-inflammatory and pain relieving medication
  • Physical or occupational therapy
  • Gentle exercise that involves breathing and stretching such as yoga or tai chi
  • Non-steroidal joint injections

The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine may also recommend home treatments to help relieve pain, including heat and cold therapy, anti-inflammatory creams, and weight loss.

If the more conservative treatments can’t improve your symptoms, the team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine may suggest surgery, such as an osteotomy to realign your bones or a joint replacement.

What Are Non-Steroidal injections?2019-02-12T23:55:29-04:00

A non-steroidal injection lubricates the joint to relieve pain and discomfort. The injection contains hyaluronic acid, which is similar to the fluid naturally found in your joints. The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine provide the injection in-office.

While the non-steroidal injection may help improve your pain, it’s only recommended after other less invasive treatments, including medication and therapy, have failed.

For joint pain relief, call the location nearest you or book an appointment online.
