Osteoarthritis

Arthritis, or inflammation of the joints, can be tested for in a variety of methods. Furthermore, X-rays can be used to see bone spurs, bone deformities, and decreased joint spaces, which can determine the severity of the arthritis. In addition, blood tests can also be used to rule out or confirm the presence of rheumatoid arthritis, or other rheumatologic diseases.  It is important that you see an Orthopaedic Physician if you think that you have arthritis in one of your joints.

Often, medications can help stop the progression of many forms of arthritis.  It is important to maintain good muscular strength in the joint that is affected.  The strength of the muscles can decrease the stress on the joint which is involved.
