What Is Arthritis?

Each day, more than 50 million people in the U.S. deal with chronic joint pain from arthritis. Arthritis is inflammation that occurs in one or more joints, which leads to pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited range of motion in the affected joints. Arthritis tends to be worse when first waking up in the morning. The pain and discomfort often prevent individuals from being able to comfortably perform tasks, such as housekeeping, exercising, driving, typing, and caregiving. If you're seeking arthritis treatment in Lawrence, KS, the compassionate physicians at Lawrence Family Practice Center can help. We offer professional, high-quality care for osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), fibromyalgia, gout, lupus, and more.

Diagnosis and Treatment for Arthritis

During an appointment at Lawrence Family Practice Center, your physician will perform an in-depth exam and may order a blood test. A sample of your joint fluid may also be taken as part of a joint aspiration test, which helps determine the cause of your joint pain. To treat arthritis, a customized treatment plan will be created based on you as an individual. We can provide a number of therapies for arthritis, including oral medications, joint injections, and osteopathic manipulation medicine (OMM). Sometimes lifestyle recommendations, physical therapy, or surgery may also be recommended. The goal is to provide as much pain relief as possible and help promote your body's natural healing mechanism.
