How Arthritis Affects People

Joint health is an important part of every person’s sense of wellness, potentially impacting productivity, quality of life and independence. Taking steps to protect joints from ongoing pain and permanent damage caused by uncontrolled inflammation is important to everyone, and early diagnosis and treatment can actually save more than just joints. In this regard is may be helpful to know that NCMA’s Rheumatology provides comprehensive diagnostics, treatment and management of a full spectrum of rheumatologic health conditions for patients in the Santa Rosa region.

It is important to understand that arthritis pain affects people differently. Factors that can add to the pain a person may experience include the amount of swelling within the joint, the extent of heat or redness present and the damage that has occurred within the joint. Some patients report pain in their joints first thing in the morning while others may develop pain only after prolonged use of the joint. Everyone has a different threshold and tolerance for pain, and physical and emotional factors can also contribute to the sensations of pain.
