Treatment for All Types of Inflammatory Arthritis 

When inflammatory arthritis strikes, your immune system begins reacting as if your body is under attack. It begins to fight against your body’s own tissues, causing serious inflammation in your joints that results in pain, discomfort, and even a loss of mobility.

Inflammatory arthritis comes in a few key types, including the following: 

Each of these conditions have slightly unique symptoms, but nearly all of them are associated with chronic pain. If you’re struggling with pain in your joints due to inflammatory arthritis, don’t let the condition progress and worsen.

Non-Surgical Inflammatory Arthritis Treatments

Because inflammatory arthritis comes in a variety of types, it’s important to remember that each kind will require a unique form of joint inflammation treatment. Likewise, no two patients are the same, and Southland Rheumatology Center is committed to providing tailor-made treatment that strives to address your specific needs.

The most common treatments for each of the aforementioned inflammatory arthritis types include:

  • Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment: Many patients struggling with psoriatic arthritis treatment opt for Ultrasound-Guided Injection Therapy
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis Relief: Those looking for relief from their symptoms respond well to rheumatoid arthritis injections, also guided by ultrasound.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis treatment: Spondylitis can be managed using injections and physical therapy. However, some patients must ultimately opt for joint replacement surgery in order to enjoy their full range of motion and live without pain.

While injections can be an effective solution to a number of problems, some patients prefer an option that requires fewer doses and offers results for a longer period of time. If this describes you, you may consider IV infusion therapy for arthritis.
