ArthritisThis type of arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks parts of the body – in this case, the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of the joints, causing chronic inflammation, which may lead to joint damage and deformity. The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are more severe than osteoarthritis. In addition to joint pain, stiffness, aching and swelling, sufferers may experience fatigue, appetite loss, difficulty sleeping and pain in other parts of the body besides the joints.
Weight ManagementThere is no cure of osteoarthritis. Treatments to reduce pain and restore movement may include weight loss, physical therapy, occupational therapy, cortisone injections, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

A variety of procedures are offered on an outpatient basis to diagnose and treat many disorders associated with the skeletal system, including arthritis, osteoporosis, injury and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Joint ReplacementRheumatoid arthritis cannot be cured, so treatments are focused on controlling pain and slowing joint damage. NSAIDs or corticosteroids may be prescribed to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs can slow disease progression to preserve the joints. In more severe cases, surgery for joint replacement or joint fusion may be required (Source: Mayo Clinic ).
