Finding Long-Term Relief From Arthritis Pain | Atlanta, GA


Osteoarthritis, also known as OA or degenerative joint disease, occurs when the cartilage that is located at the end of the bone begins to wear down. This form of chronic arthritis is one of the most common conditions of the joints and can appear in any joint, although it is commonly found in the knee, hips, lower back, neck, and smaller joints of the fingers and toes. When osteoarthritis is found in the spine, it is referred to as degenerative disc disease.

Treatment & Diagnosis of Osteoarthritis

At The Physicians, we take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating osteoarthritis. In order to get an accurate diagnosis, our team will review your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and order imaging tests if necessary. Once we have a clear understanding of your condition, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

There are many different treatment options available for osteoarthritis, and the right one for you will depend on the severity of your symptoms and your overall health.
