Knee Inflammatory Arthritis Treatment
There are many different causes of inflammation in the knee joint. Injuries to the ligaments, tendons, cartilage or bone can result in inflammation, as well as degenerative conditions, like osteoarthritis. Another possible cause of knee inflammation is an autoimmune disorder, which causes the body to attack itself. Knee inflammatory arthritis is a group autoimmune-related knee disorders that can cause knee pain and dysfunction. Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA offers knee inflammatory arthritis treatment at our medical clinic in Beverly Hills.
Arthritis is an incurable disease that involves inflammation in the joint. Osteoarthritis is the most common to affect the knee joint, caused by injuries and wear on the knee joint. The category of knee inflammatory arthritis includes diseases that are impacted by autoimmune disorders. These include rheumatoid arthritis and gout, and both can cause painful swelling in the knee. Unlike degenerative arthritis, inflammatory arthritis can affect individuals of all ages, causing pain and limiting mobility.
Relief from Arthritic Knee Pain
Knee inflammatory arthritis treatment can include a variety of therapies to reduce inflammation within the joint. Since these types of arthritis are caused by an unnatural autoimmune response, treatments can include medications to manage this condition. Physical therapy and interventional treatments can be used to control pain and swelling in the knee joint. If the inflammation has caused damage to the knee joint or surgery may be recommended to repair or replace cartilage.
