It’s a common misconception that if you have knee arthritis, you’re doomed to deal with it on your own, and there’s nothing you can do about it until it becomes bad enough for surgery. This is not true. We at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic know the best ways to treat knee arthritis and are happy to help. Here are some reasons why you should go to a specialist for your knee arthritis.
- Properly diagnose the issue: There are three main types of knee arthritis, and sometimes arthritis isn’t even the true cause of your knee pain. At our clinic, we can do examinations, imaging testing, and more to accurately diagnose the cause of your specific knee arthritis and determine the proper treatment.
- Get effective short-term and long-term treatments: Another great part of working with a specialist for your knee arthritis is that we can recommend effective short-term and long-term treatments. We understand that every case of arthritis is different and that everyone has different lifestyles, so we can tailor the treatment plan to your needs rather than you having to play a guessing game of treating your knees on your own.
- Find real relief: The best part about working with a specialist rather than trying to handle your knee arthritis on your own is that we can help you find real relief. We will try a variety of approaches to proactively treat your pain until you can find some real relief.
