If routine activities like taking a stroll in the park or climbing up the stairs are causing discomfort and taking its toll on you, you could be suffering from arthritis then. Arthritis or joint pain is a disorder that causes inflammation of one or more joints and can cripple your ability to enjoy all the activities that you love. You may feel pain for no apparent reason in and around your hips, hands, knees or other joints throughout your body.

Though we normally associate joint pains and arthritis to old age, surprisingly, it is not just restricted to senior citizens alone. With our modern and fast-paced lives coupled with unhealthy dietary patterns, a lot of people have started falling prey to such pains. There are basically two kinds of arthritis; the first one is osteoarthritis, where the cartilage wears down and the bone starts rubbing on another bone causing it to wear out while the second one is Rheumatoid arthritis, which is caused due to an autoimmune disorder and triggered by a faulty immune system. In addition, Arthritis also causes the immune system to attack the healthy body cells. Either way, the negative impact of arthritis on a person’s quality of life cannot be ignored at any juncture.

We have expertise in treating all types of arthritis. Our expertise includes treating rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, lupus, reactive arthritis, and seronegative Arthritis
