What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a general term that refers to inflammation and stiffness in the joints. There are over 100 types of arthritis, each with unique symptoms and underlying causes. The two most common forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that cushions the joints wears down, leading to pain and stiffness. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joints, leading to inflammation and damage.


  • Pain or stiffness in the joints, especially after periods of inactivity or overuse
  • Swelling or tenderness in the affected joints
  • Limited range of motion or difficulty moving the joints
  • Warmth or redness in the joints
  • Fatigue or malaise
  • Fever or other signs of inflammation
  • Bony growths around the affected joints (in advanced cases)

Diagnosing Arthritis

Diagnosing arthritis typically involves a physical examination and diagnostic testing. During a physical exam, we look for signs of inflammation or joint damage and assess the range of motion and muscle strength. Diagnostic testing, such as blood tests, X-rays, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), may confirm the diagnosis and identify the type of arthritis present, based on which we curate a personalized treatment plan.
