There are many types of arthritis, and among the most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage that protects your joints diminishes over time, which causes pain, discomfort, and stiffness. Rheumatoid arthritis on the other hand, is caused by an autoimmune disease in which your body breaks down the protecting tissues and bones around your joints, resulting in excruciating pain and inflammation.

Let’s talk about gouts now. Do you know what gout is? Well, gout occurs when you have an excessive accumulation of uric acid in your body, which results in sharp crystal deposits forming in your joints and tendons. While this condition is most frequently associated with men, it can also affect women. Does this sound like you? If the answer is yes, you are at great risk of developing arthritis. So, if you have gout, come to the Health & Spine Wellness Center to get screened for arthritis and if you have arthritis, the good news is that we can help you get relief!
