What is the most effective treatment for arthritis thus far? And are we any closer to finding a cure for auto immune diseases?
Yes: It depends on the type of arthritis. When i was in medical school in the 1970's, about one person in 150 would have their life ruined by autoimmune arthritis. The immunomodulators produced by biotechnology have greatly improved the outlook for severe disease and have proved surprisingly safe. It's still a rough and frustrating disease but progress continues. Stay proactive -- and good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My grandaunt has severe knee and feet pain.She doesn't have arthritis but has osteoporosis.Is there a treatment and cure for it.She can hardly walk.

Full ortho eval: Initial radiographs would need to include weightbearing views: Bilateral standing AP, PA Rosenberg, full extension lateral and bilateral sunrise views. If any hint of poor alignment noted, then proceed with full hip-knee-ankle bilateral mechanical axis views to determine where weightbearing line from center of femoral head to ankle crosses at the knee joint. This will help determine if an osteotomy in such a young patient is indicated or should be considered. After imaging and a full examination for motion strength, and laxity, an MRI would help finalize any plans for potential surgery by delineating the degree of any cartilage or meniscal and ligamentous pathology. With history of hyperextension, a definite concern is whether posterolateral corner (LCL, popliteus and popliteofibular ligament) is also involved or injured/loose. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
