Our experienced medical staff responds to a recent patient question:
“Can You Help My Arthritis Pain?”
There are many types of arthritis, but the most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness and decreased range of motion. With these symptoms it is hard to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Even though symptoms may dissipate, or just occur periodically, it is important to understand all of the available treatment options and discuss the benefits and risks of each of them with your doctor. Together, you can come up with an individualized treatment plan that will achieve the best results for you. The ultimate goal for treating arthritis is to control pain, minimize joint damage, and improve activity of daily living. And with the right treatment plan, it’s definitely possible. Under Dr. Sakai’s care, I have seen great success with lots of our patients living with arthritis.
