"I was told by a different doctor six months ago that my foot issue (hallucinations rigidus) required surgery within the year or it would get so bad that the surgery would be MUCH worse. I’m so thankful that he wasn’t Tier I on my insurance, as it forced me to get a second opinion from Dr. Blevins yesterday. He could have so easily agreed with the other doctor after I told him about it. But instead he discouraged me from choosing surgery. He spent a great deal of time discussing other ideas that I should try first. It was one of the best, most comfortable conversations I’ve ever had with a doctor. It didn’t feel rushed, as it so often feels with too many doctors these days. I’m so glad I’ve found Dr. Blevins and will trust him to continue to guide me if the alternatives to surgery we discussed do not work! He was courteous, caring, kind and really talked WITH me, not at me!"

"I can seriously say that I have never been treated by a better doctor. Dr. Price was very knowledgeable about my very difficult surgery and the equipment I needed. He really took the time to go over every aspect so that I understood exactly what was going to happen before, during and after surgery. Dr. Price is so funny and made me feel very comfortable on every appointment. A huge thank you to Dr. Price and his whole staff, I can see why he was voted most compassionate doctor!"

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a painful disease of the joints. There are many different kinds of arthritis with various causes, but they all lead to pain and inflammation of joints such as the hip, knee, or wrist. Arthritis affects people of all ages, races, and genders, but it is more common in women and older people. It is the leading cause of disability in the United States.

Symptoms of arthritis include swelling, pain, and stiffness. They can occur in a single joint or throughout the body. It is common for symptoms to come and go, known as flares. In some kinds of arthritis, flares may be caused by specific triggers, such as exercise, stress, or an allergic reaction.

By far the two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis happens when wear and tear on joints breaks down the cartilage between two moving bones. In a healthy person, cartilage cushions and lubricates the bones so they can glide over each other as they move. When the cartilage becomes thin or tears, the ends of bones rub and cause pain. In rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s own immune system becomes confused and attacks joint cartilage, weakening it and causing inflammation.

Treatment for arthritis depends on the specific type, but it may include:
  • Avoiding arthritis triggers
  • Hot or cold therapy, such as ice or hot packs
  • Oral or injected medications, such as corticosteroids, NSAIDs, and biologics
  • Physical therapy and gentle exercises
  • Surgery to repair or replace damaged joints

In many types of arthritis, early treatment can prevent more serious damage to your joints, keeping your symptoms in check. Whatever stage you are in, help exists to let you stay active and manage pain. There are many options to get you moving again.
