What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a degenerative disease that occurs at your joints. There are two common types of arthritis:
- Osteoarthritis is the most common form and is the result of cartilage around your joints wearing away.
- Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease in which your immune system attacks the lining around your joints.
Symptoms of arthritis include pain, stiffness and loss of mobility. Your body’s inflammatory response can also contribute to the pain and movement issues that arthritis causes.

Dr. Odom’s Approach to Arthritis Treatment
What causes arthritis?
Some of the causes of arthritis include age, lifestyle, genetics, injuries and obesity. The reasons you have it may be completely different than another patient.
Who gets arthritis?
Anyone can get arthritis and it’s more common than you might think. Most adults will start to develop arthritis as a result of daily living, life choices and normal movements. Simply getting older is a cause we can’t avoid and not all arthritis is symptomatic.
What does arthritis feel like?
You will feel pain and stiffness in joint areas like your knees, hands, hips and ankles. Stiffness is especially prevalent in the morning when you first wake up. You may also experience swelling. Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms might include fever, shortness of breath and chest pain.
When should I seek treatment for arthritis?
Seek arthritis treatment as soon as it begins to affect your daily life. If joint pain keeps you awake at night or if you’ve begun to use pain medication as a result, please contact us.
Is arthritis hereditary?
It can be. If your parents and other family members have arthritis, you’re probably at greater risk. Age, previous injury and obesity are also factors.
Is arthritis curable?
Unfortunately, no. There is no cure for arthritis but we’ve developed some very effective means of reducing pain and improving the mobility issues caused by arthritis. Many of them are non-surgical and can restore your quality of life.
Can you slow the onset of arthritis?
Yes. Many of the treatments we perform in our clinic are effective at slowing the onset of arthritis. These include HA injections, PRP and stem cell therapies.
Can you rebuild cartilage?
We can slow cartilage loss and potentially restore your lost cartilage through the use of PRP and stem cell therapy.
Is physical therapy good for arthritis?
Physical therapy for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis can be an effective way to reduce pain and improve your mobility in the affected area. A good therapist will understand how your body works and will prescribe a routine that matches your needs.
What is the best treatment for arthritis in the lower back?
Lower back arthritis can be crippling. It affects your daily function, your sleep and your ability to focus. Every case is unique and should be diagnosed by a doctor. The benefit of Odom’s clinic is that you have access to treatments in a multitude of disciplines.
