What treatments can help my arthritis?

Dr. Sekhon is an internal medicine physician who can manage any health condition, including treatment for arthritis, which is a common health complaint characterized by pain in your joints.

Treatment for your arthritis may depend on the type you have. Common types of arthritis include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout

To ease pain and inflammation, Dr. Sekhon may recommend over-the-counter anti-inflammatories. If you’re carrying excess weight, Dr. Sekhon can help you lose weight with her medical weight loss program, which may also help relieve pain. A referral to a physical therapist may also be recommended.

How do I know if I have osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a bone condition that causes your bones to weaken and be more susceptible to fracture. Dr. Sekhon orders a bone mineral density test to determine if you have osteoporosis, which is a special X-ray that measures the density of your bones and risk of fracture.

If you have osteoporosis or you’re at risk, Dr. Sekhon may recommend lifestyle and diet changes to improve bone health and prevent fractures. She may also prescribe medications that help rebuild bone.
