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.
