Arthritis is a medical condition that causes inflammation and stiffness in the joints, leading to pain and reduced mobility. It can affect people of all ages and can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, genetics, and lifestyle factors. While this condition can limit your ability to perform simple daily tasks and keep you from doing the activities you love most, you can find relief and regain your independence when you seek personalized arthritis treatment at Premier Bone and Joint Centers in Riverton, Wyoming.

What Causes Arthritis?

Arthritis is caused by a combination of factors, including genetics, age, and lifestyle. Some types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, are caused by an autoimmune response, where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues. Other types of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, are caused by wear and tear on the joints over time.

Treating Arthritis

Treating your arthritis will depend on the type and severity of your condition. For mild cases, we may recommend management through lifestyle changes such as exercise, weight loss, and physical therapy. However, more severe cases may require medication or surgery.

At Premier Bone and Joint Centers, our arthritis doctors will always explore conservative arthritis treatment options before recommending medication or surgical intervention. If surgery is deemed necessary, our orthopedic specialists will utilize the most advanced techniques available to perform the procedure with minimal invasiveness.
