Now that the temperatures are going down, we will see a lot more complaints of arthritis symptoms in the clinics. As you may be aware, arthritis is a very common joint problem affecting any joint in the body especially the knees, hips, hands and shoulders. Commonly it’s treated with over-the-counter pain relievers including Tylenol and ibuprofen, however symptoms can sometimes be a little more severe and require additional evaluation. So if you are having any worsening, chronic or acute joint pains, please book a reservation at CentraCareKC.com.
