A General Overview
The services of Arthritis Associates are specialized and are available by physician referral only. If you feel you are in need of these services, please consult with your physician or contact our office for assistance with the referral process.
Areas of specialization include:
- Arthritis - Over 120 diseases which affect the joint are commonly referred to as arthritis. While the causes may vary, all result in symptoms which affect the joint. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout and fibromyalgia are the most common forms.
- Osteoporosis - One of the more common conditions we treat, osteoporosis is a disease that gradually weakens bones, causing them to become brittle and prone to fractures. Osteoporosis and its associated fractures can rob you of your mobility and independence. We have developed a program of testing, diagnosis and treatment for osteoporosis called OsteoCare.
