for Rheumatoid Arthritis
For many years, only the pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis (RA) could be treated and not the deterioration of the joints caused by inflammation. Now, researchers report a new way to stop the progression of the disease.
Massage Helpful, Smoking Not
Two new studies look at what helps and what does not when it comes to painful knee osteoarthritis. The first study reveals massage is beneficial for patients with the condition. The second study reveals smoking can actually make the pain worse.
Relief From Arthritis
For the first time, doctors say it may be possible to stop the joint damage brought on by rheumatoid arthritis.
Treatment, new Approach for Rheumatoid Arthritis
The study reveals the very same drugs currently used to relieve the joint pain and inflammation of RA may now work even better if administered using a different method.
Despite some controversy over its effectiveness, a new study supports the recommendation by the European League Against Rheumatism for the use of steroid injections to treat hip osteoarthritis (OA).
