What is arthritis?

Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects your joints. While there are over 100 types of arthritis, Dr. Baron treats three of the most common:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
    Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to mistakenly attack the healthy lining of the joints. This leads to inflammation in the joints that causes pain and reduces your range of motion.
  • Osteoarthritis
    Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that causes the protective cartilage covering the ends of the joints to break down. Without this cartilage, your bones rub together, causing friction that results in persistent joint stiffness and pain.
  • Psoriatic arthritis
    Psoriatic arthritis is a type of autoimmune disease and a common side effect of the skin condition psoriasis. Due to dysfunction in the immune system, the body overproduces skin cells and causes scaly, itchy patches to form on the skin. The immune system can also attack healthy joints, leading to chronic joint inflammation and pain.

When should I seek treatment for arthritis?

Dr. Baron recommends scheduling an appointment as soon as you notice that the pain and stiffness of arthritis begin to interfere with your quality of life.

How is arthritis treated?

As a specialist in autoimmune disorders, Dr. Baron offers a variety of holistic, non-surgical treatments for arthritis. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for all types of arthritis. This time-tested, natural therapy reduces inflammation and improves circulation to effectively treat your arthritic pain.

Acupuncture is used to stimulate nerve-rich areas of the skin, which sends signals to the brain to improve blood flow and reduce inflammation in the joints. Acupuncture also stimulates the release of endorphins, the natural painkillers in your body, to restore your quality of life.

Acupoint injection therapy is also available and involves injections of high-quality vitamins, herbal supplements, and other homeopathic solutions to boost your overall health. Dr. Baron can provide recommendations for other Chinese herbal medicines that naturally ease pain and boost your overall immunity.
