Arthritis Treatment


Arthritis is inflammation of the joints that affects the musculoskeletal system of the body. There are different types of arthritis that can affect people in many different ways; patients may suffer from stiffness, discomfort, and pain. It can also make people feel weak and lead to an inactive lifestyle. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and affects elderly patients. At Atlanta Medical Institute, our skilled team of physicians offers a number of arthritis treatment methods, focusing on knees, in order to alleviate pain and discomfort for our Atlanta, GA patients. Our team is led by Dr. Elbridge Bills and Dr. Jeff Semel, who are highly experienced in effectively combating the effects of arthritis on the knees.

What is the best form of treatment for arthritis?  

Everyone’s body is different. Therefore, the correct form of treatment can depend on the way your specific body functions. During your consultation, Dr. Bills or Dr. Semel will conduct a thorough assessment of your condition before recommending the form of treatment that is best suited to your unique needs.

Is arthritis curable?    

Unfortunately, there is currently no known cure for arthritis. However, modern treatments such as hyaluronic acid injections, which are covered by insurance, as well as other techniques are constantly improving and making it easier to manage arthritis, especially when diagnosed in its early stages.

What triggers arthritis?    
Typically, arthritis flare-ups are caused by overuse or trauma to the affected joint. This is not the only motive, though, as it can also be brought on by bone spurs, stress, cold weather, infection, or weight gain.
