Arthritis Screening

Arthritis Screening

Arthritis symptoms can be vague and confusing, but they are important to recognize. It is incredibly common for people who have joint pain and other early symptoms to think that they have injured themselves. Often, they spend some time trying to self-treat the symptoms with over-the-counter treatment options. Hopefully they don’t this for long. It’s important to recognize early symptoms of arthritis and consult your doctor for an examination and assessment.
