Approach to Arthritis

The approach to arthritis involves a systematic evaluation to identify the type and cause of joint inflammation. A comprehensive assessment, including patient history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests, helps differentiate between various arthritic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or psoriatic arthritis. Treatment strategies aim to alleviate symptoms, slow disease progression, and improve overall function. These may include a combination of pharmacological interventions, lifestyle modifications, and physical therapy. Personalized care plans, often in collaboration with rheumatologists, focus on managing pain, reducing inflammation, and enhancing the patient's quality of life. Regular monitoring and adjustments to the treatment plan contribute to a holistic and effective approach in addressing arthritis.
