Arthritis causes wearing away of the joints. Some of the common arthritic symptoms are joint pain, stiffness, swelling, stiffness, and fatigue. One of the main types of arthritis is osteoarthritis (OA), also referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis. With OA, wear and tear damages the cartilage in the joints causing them to lose their smooth gliding action and results in friction or rubbing of the ends of our bones. Greater than 120 million people in the US have arthritis.
When arthritis affects the neck, back, hands, feet, or hips, difficulties arise when trying to get through even the most menial daily tasks. The surrounding muscles may begin to tighten as they try to overcompensate for the pain and protect the injured area. These tight muscles can create tension headaches and limit range of motion. Most people may find that there is little to no relief with over the counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen. However, many people require muscle relaxers or higher dosage NSAIDs that are only available by prescription.
If you are experiencing pain from arthritis, Quick Care Med Urgent Care can treat your symptoms promptly and prescribe the right medications for you to help you get back to living your life with less pain and inflammation.
