What is Arthritis?

ARTHRITIS

Arthritis is an acute or chronic inflammation of the joints that causes pain and structural changes. It can be caused by an injury or infection, a genetic predisposition, or systemic issues. Among the most common forms of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, and juvenile arthritis. About 50 million people in the United States live with some form of arthritis. Current conventional medical treatment often is inadequate when dealing with the more debilitating symptoms.

 

How will we determine if I have arthritis?

Dr. Cohen believes that patients suffering from arthritis can find relief through integrative treatments. With Dr. Cohen’s evaluation and guidance, patients may be able to mitigate the symptoms of arthritis by adopting an anti-inflammatory diet, increasing their intake of fish oil, adding supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin, and adopting a gentle exercise routine that includes stretching, motion and heat.
