Arthritis causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and inflammation in one or more of your joints and worsens as you get older.
There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, but some are more common than others.
Treatment may depend on the type of arthritis that you have, but Dr. Madapati may first recommend over-the-counter medications that help reduce pain and inflammation. If these medications fail to improve your symptoms, she may recommend:
Joint replacement may also be needed if the more conservative treatments can’t seem to improve your overall quality of life.
Dr. Madapati uses joint injections to place medication directly into the joint to relieve your symptoms. These injections usually consist of anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing medication. The injections may keep you pain free for up to a year.
If your pain is more muscle related, Dr. Madapati may recommend a trigger point injection. A trigger point is a muscle knot that may cause radiating pain and discomfort. A direct injection of medication into the knot relaxes the muscle and relieves your pain.
Dr. Madapati uses trigger point injections to provide immediate relief from pain in your back, legs, arms, or neck. If needed, she can provide multiple injections during one visit.
