Arthritis Care

Arthritis symptoms can be effectively managed and treated with a variety of medical modalities. At iOrtho, medical treatments can include oral medications, bracing, activity modifications and physical therapy. There are a variety of injectable treatments available for the joints including hyaluronate (gel injections) which is one of the more popular treatments.

In some cases, medical treatment is ineffective due to the severity of the condition and surgery is needed to effectively manage the problem. Non-reconstructive surgery is to debride the joint often arthroscopically to remove damaged cartilage, loose fragments and create smooth surfaces. Reconstructive surgery is to replace the damaged surfaces with synthetic implants- partial or total joint replacement.

In cases of spinal arthritis medications, physical therapy, medications, bracing, lifestyle modifications may provide effective relief of symptoms. Spinal injections, radiofrequency nerve ablation and other minimally invasive procedures may be effective at relieving pain when medical treatments fail. Disc replacement, spinal decompression and fusion are reconstructive options that can provide effective long lasting relief.

Arthritis symptoms include joint swelling, tenderness, painful motion and or weight bearing, deformity, loss of motion, difficulty/pain walking and/ or running, pain with activity and/ or rest.

How Arthritis Affects Your Body

Arthritis is a diverse condition that can affect various parts of the body:

Spinal arthritis can lead to stiffness and pain in the neck or back. In more severe cases, it may exert pressure on spinal nerves or the spinal cord itself, resulting in weakness or numbness in the arms or legs.


Arthritis in the shoulder often manifests as stiffness and painful motion, making overhead activities, lifting, and carrying objects challenging. This can significantly limit your range of motion.


Elbow arthritis tends to cause stiffness and pain during physical activities, affecting your ability to perform tasks that involve the use of your arm.


Hand arthritis typically results in pain, stiffness, and swelling in the finger joints. It may also lead to joint deformity, which can impact your hand's overall function and appearance.


Arthritis in the hip can bring about pain in the hip joint, groin, buttock, and even the knee. This discomfort can make walking difficult, cause limping, and even make it challenging to put on shoes and socks.


Knee arthritis is often associated with persistent pain in the knee and leg. It may lead to swelling, limping, stiffness, and difficulties with activities like climbing stairs. Some people even experience pain at rest.


Arthritis affecting the foot or ankle can result in swelling, stiffness, limping, and difficulties when it comes to wearing certain types of shoes. This can substantially impact your mobility and daily activities.

If you suspect you have arthritis in any of these areas, it's important to consult a medical professional for a proper diagnosis and appropriate management.
