Hattiesburg Clinic offers specialized care for patients suffering from various types of arthritis.

Arthritis Overview

Arthritis is a general term referring to joint disease and joint pain. People with arthritis usually experience swelling, tenderness, pain and stiffness in their joints. Arthritis pain can often be debilitating, making it near impossible to carry out daily activities. There are many different types of arthritis, and symptoms can vary from patient to patient. If you have arthritis, it is important to see a rheumatologist to develop a customized plan of care that addresses your symptoms.

Types of Arthritis

While there are many types of arthritis, the most common types include:

Each type of arthritis has its own causes and symptoms. If you are experiencing regular pain and body aches, either across the body or in localized joints, it is important to see a specialist to perform an evaluation and diagnose the specific type of arthritis. Once the specific type of arthritis is known, your rheumatologist can create a treatment plan to provide relief.

Arthritis Symptoms

Arthritis symptoms can present themselves in different areas of the body, including the ankle, back, fingers, hands, neck, wrist and more. Each type of arthritis will have its own specific symptoms, but in general, signs you may have arthritis include:

  • Bumps on the fingers or toes
  • Stiffness, swelling or tenderness of the joints
