Two of the most prevalent types of arthritis we treat are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The common arthritis symptoms of pain and stiffness are usually caused by degenerative joint arthritis (osteoarthritis) while rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive disease with symptoms of tender, stiff, and swollen joints. RA often starts in smaller joints, like fingers, and gradually progresses to larger joint structures. Patients suffering from arthritis can benefit from many aspects of arthritis management. Our experts will treat your Manchester arthritis pain and assist you with improved joint function, increased muscle strength, and improved fitness level. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. It is a condition we have vast experience treating. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of the fingers and the bases of the thumb and big toe. In healthy joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. This cartilage allows the joint to smoothly glide during movement and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. As OA worsens over time, bones may break down and develop growths called bone spurs.

Whatever your orthopedic needs are, if you need treatment for Manchester arthritis and want an orthopedic surgeon with craftsmanship and tremendous skills, look no further. Dr. Vipul Dua is board certified and here to help you resume an active lifestyle.
