What Treatments Are Available?
Arthritis affects people in different ways, so most people suffer from joint pain in different ways as well. That’s why we offer a range of different treatments to help you find the relief that you need.
Many medications can help with certain aspects of your pain. Some of the more common options include:
- Painkillers: Many painkillers can help you find relief from pain, but these medications won’t do anything for the actual inflammation.
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): Over-the-counter and prescription NSAIDs can reduce both pain and inflammation. This is a great option for some people.
- Counterirritants: Creams and ointments that interfere with pain signals in your joints may help you find relief.
- Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs): These drugs specifically stop rheumatoid arthritis from attacking your joints.
We can help you find the medication that best helps your joint pain.
Depending on your type of arthritis and your type of pain, therapy could be of great help. Exercising and strengthening the muscles around your joints could be just the joint inflammation treatment that you need.
If your joint issues are severe enough that medication and therapy don’t really help, surgery is always a treatment option. Joint repair surgery, joint replacement surgery, and joint fusion surgery are all options that we can help you consider.
With years of experience, our clinics offer dependable relief from joint pain. If your joints cause you pain or irritation at all, contact us today at (801) 818-1940 for an appointment.
