Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis affects the cells that line and normally lubricate the joints. Stiffness, swelling and pain are all symptoms. Our goal is to relieve pain and restore function through treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications, oral steroids or cortisone injections. Other disease-modifying treatments are also used that will help suppress the body's immune system to reduce inflammation and pain.

Treatments for arthritis include hand therapy, adaptive devices, or surgery. Whatever the best treatment is for you, our team approach to your arthritis will help manage your symptoms and provide relief for your pain.
