Arthritis Pain Q & A


"Arthritis is a general term encompassing more than a hundred tissues that cause swelling and restricted movement of joints and connective tissue anywhere in the body. It strikes someone in virtually every family-one in seven Americans. Treatment can take two routes: pain-relieving drugs alone or in combination with physical therapy to root out painful symptoms, and for the autoimmune variety, drugs that restrain or slow the cannibalizing of joint tissues" — Dr. Scott Fishman
