This combined suite of offices, located at 47-647 Caleo Bay, Suite 200, in La Quinta, is now referred to as JFK Bone & Joint Institute and focuses on the diagnosis, management, and treatment of patients with orthopedic, arthritis, osteoporosis, bone & joint disorders, sports medicine problems and rheumatoid pain.  For information on JFK Bone & Joint Institute physicians or for appointment scheduling, please call 760-777-8282.  Building shown below.

Arthritis-Related Diseases

There are many types of arthritis.  Some types, like rheumatoid arthritis, almost always affects multiple joints, so it is not unusual for these types of arthritis to spread from one joint to another.  Osteoarthritis does not “spread”; however, other joints may be affected, especially if you change your gait (walking pattern) to compensate for pain and lack of motion.  Arthritis causes the muscles and tendons to become tight with inactivity, which can cause stiffness.  Physicians on staff at JFK are experienced and knowledgeable to assist our patients’ best manage their own arthritis symptoms.

Every day we perform simple tasks and participate in activities that bring us joy. It is easy to overlook the role that good health and ease of mobility play in allowing us to enjoy these simple activities. The difficulties associated with arthritis pain, degenerative joint disease and orthopedic injuries don’t just cripple our bodies – they can cripple our ability to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.  Clicking on this link will take you to information regarding our frequent free community lectures on various orthopedic and joint pain topics, and to see the schedule of arthritis prevention and management classes offered on our campus.
