Get Help for Your Arthritis Pain

At Baptist Health System, our orthopedic specialists know that arthritis is more than just a pain — it can deprive you of being able to do the things you like to do. Whether it’s walking the dog, cooking in your kitchen or just being able to put on your own socks and shoes, we can help you get back to your daily life.

Our arthritis specialists treat more than 100 types of arthritis diseases and conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis — the most common type of arthritis that affects the wrist and small joints of the hand — and psoriatic arthritis, a form of arthritis that affects people with the skin condition psoriasis.

Arthritis Symptoms

Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are characterized by pain, swelling, and limited movement in joints and connective tissues in the body. Although arthritis and rheumatic diseases can affect anyone from children to older adults, arthritis is the leading cause of disability among people ages 65 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Diagnosing arthritis and other rheumatic diseases can sometimes be difficult, as many symptoms are similar among the different diseases. To make an accurate diagnosis, your doctor will review your medical history, perform a complete physical exam and possibly order laboratory tests, X-rays or other imaging tests.

No matter what form of arthritis you’re suffering from, the arthritis specialists at Baptist can help. We understand that your condition is as unique as you are, so we treat your arthritis in a personalized way. Your doctor will work with you to find the most appropriate treatment options for your particular arthritis.
