Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes pain, swelling, and joint stiffness. While there isn’t a cure for rheumatoid arthritis, treatment can decrease pain, improve function, and slow joint destruction.
Our board-certified rheumatologists have been successful in helping many rheumatoid arthritis patients find relief, often with a regimen of medication, physical therapy, and exercise.
It’s best not to delay seeing a physician if you experience unexpected pain, swelling, or stiffness in your joints. Diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis early and starting treatment right away can significantly slow, and sometimes stop, disease activity and joint damage.
