Arthritis and Rheumatism

Can Arthritis and its Pain be Cured?



Can arthiritis be cured? Can the pain in joints be lessened without alopethic medication? Is knee replacement always the solution, and by how far is it successful? 


Keep in mind that there are many different types of arthritides. I am not certain what type of arthritis to which your questions pertain. In general, allopathic medicines may help control pain and/or induce disease remission. My training is as a Rheumatologist. An Orthopaedist would be able to provide answers about outcomes following a knee replacement surgery.
