Your Little Rock, Arkansas Arthritis Pain Specialists

How long have you been living with arthritis pain? You may not know that arthritis is classified into two different types: inflammatory and non-inflammatory arthritis. Both types of arthritis require different treatments. Conventional arthritis treatment often involves the use of medication to help control the pain.  Although medication is sometimes necessary, there are many treatments that can be done  to help arthritis pain and empower you to take back your life. Just because you have arthritis in your joints, it doesn’t mean you have to live in pain.

Clearstone Medical Center Arthritis Pain Treatment

Successfully eliminating your arthritis pain starts with an accurate diagnosis. Using the latest diagnostic tools, we’re able to accurately pinpoint the type of arthritis and the severity. Different types of arthritis respond to different forms and combinations of treatments. After we determine the type and extent of your arthritis, we design and put into action an integrated arthritis treatment plan that may include lifestyle modifications, regenerative medicine, and corrective in-office and at-home treatments.

Greg Simpson
I have had issues off and on with my knees since high school. At times it was tolerable, other times not so much. About three months ago I sprained the mcl in my left knee while already dealing pain in my right knee. Dr. Roth discovered I had a baker cyst (which I had never heard of) in my right knee while treating the sprain in my left, after 12 sessions my knees felt better than they had in recent years. I am so thankful for the team at Clearstone. I would highly recommend them.

Who Usually Gets Arthritis?

Arthritis is the inflammation of a joint. A simple injury to a joint can cause arthritis, so anybody can develop arthritis regardless of age. Genetics can sometimes be a contributing factor.  The following risk factors can increase your likelihood of developing arthritis:

  • Family history of arthritis
  • Previous injuries to joints
  • Being a woman
  • Older age
  • Presence of bone spurs
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Excessive physical demands in a variety of activities like sports or job-related tasks.
  • Previous bacterial or viral infections of certain types

How Many Types of Arthritis are There?

There are over 100 different types of arthritis, so it’s very important for a doctor to properly diagnose your condition.   The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis.  This type of arthritis is often associated with aging and occurs when the protective layers of cartilage between your bones wear down.  Injuries can often accelerate this problem, causing premature degeneration of joints.

Other types of arthritis can occur when your immune system attacks your joints.  This category of joint problems is classified as autoimmune arthritis.  Rheumatoid arthritis is a good example of one type of autoimmune arthritis.  The erosion of the joints and bones caused by autoimmunity can lead to disabling pain and swelling.

Another well-known type of arthritis is Gout.  This is caused by excessive uric acid in the body, which crystallizes in the joints and causes pain and inflammation. Although both men and women can get gout, it is more common in men.

Can You Treat Arthritis with Surgery?

In some instances, surgery is necessary to relieve arthritic pain, but should always be considered a last resort after conservative options have failed.  The type of surgery used to treat arthritic pain varies depending on the nature of your arthritis.  Sometimes, surgery is used to remove damaged cartilage or connective tissue.  In cases where the joint derangement and pain is severe, replacement surgery may be needed. The most common types of replacement surgery are knees, hips, and shoulders.
