Arthritis or Something Else?

Arthritis causes pain and swelling in your joints — like your hip and knee — and can be the result of an injury or other disease like rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis sufferers often experience mobility issues that can affect their quality of life, leading them to seek the help of specialized physicians for the diagnosis and treatment of their pain.

Getting a Diagnosis

The first step in determining how arthritis impacts your joints is making sure the pain you’re feeling is actually joint pain and not another issue. For example, pain in your buttocks or back may indicate one issue while pain in your groin may indicate arthritis. A full evaluation by a Mendelson Kornblum specialist can help determine the source of the pain and begin a treatment plan.
