Arthritis-Related Diseases

Managing the pain of arthritis

There are many types of arthritis. Some types, such as rheumatoid arthritis, almost always affect multiple joints – so it is not unusual for it to spread from one joint to another.

Osteoarthritis does not “spread.” However, other joints may be affected, especially if you change your gait – or walking pattern – to compensate for pain and lack of motion.

Arthritis causes muscles and tendons to become tight with inactivity, which can cause stiffness. Physicians on staff at Desert Care Network are experienced and knowledgeable about arthritis symptoms and conditions and are ready to help you best manage them.
