Arthritis Treatment

Causing inflammation, reduced mobility, and pain, arthritis is the most common condition affecting the joints. This condition typically occurs as a result of normal wear and tear; however, injuries, illness, and infection can also cause arthritis to develop. Our board certified orthopaedic surgeons are highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of all forms of this disease. At the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey, we are dedicated to helping our patients living with arthritis regain strength, mobility, and comfort. Our state-of-the-art techniques and time-tested methods are designed to enhance health and achieve results. Additionally, we can engage your primary care physician and/or rheumatologist as part of our helpful team approach. When you arrive for your initial consultation, we will discuss the treatment options available and recommend the ones we believe can offer you the best chance to alleviate discomfort and enhance your quality of life.

Treatment Options

The primary goal when treating arthritis is to relieve pain, increase motion, and improve strength. Just as there is an extensive variety of arthritis forms, there is also an expansive array of treatment options, and the right method or combination of methods for you will depend on your unique symptoms and needs. Some of the techniques we use include:

  • Over-the-counter and prescription oral medication
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Arthrocentesis
  • Viscosupplementation
  • Splints, canes, crutches
  • Physical therapy

Occasionally, surgery will be recommended if all other therapies prove ineffective. Your orthopaedic physician will discuss your treatment plan with you to determine the approach that optimizes your results.
