What Is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a term used to refer to inflammation, pain, and stiffness in the joints. The two most well known forms of arthritis are Osteoarthritis (OA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). However, there are many forms of arthritis that are less commonly known.

Arthritis affects people of all ages and races, and it is more common among women and as we age. According to the Arthritis Foundation, “… it is the leading cause of disability in America.” Arthritis pain can severely inhibit one’s quality of life leading to less activity, chronic pain, deformed joints, inability to grasp items and care for oneself, and even depression.

Osteoarthritis (OA)

Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease that affects some 27 million Americans. OA is characterized by the breakdown of cartilage – the part of a joint that cushions the ends of the bones and allows easy movement. As cartilage deteriorates, bones begin to rub against one another. This can cause stiffness and pain that make it difficult for you to use that joint.

Osteoarthritis can also damage ligaments, menisci and muscles. Over time OA may create a need for joint replacements. Osteoarthritis occurs most often in knees, hips and hands. Other joints, particularly the shoulders, can also be affected.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a form of inflammatory arthritis and an autoimmune disease, meaning that the immune system – which is designed to protect our health by attacking foreign cells such as viruses and bacteria – instead attacks the body’s own tissues, specifically the synovium, a thin membrane that lines the joints.

As a result of the attack, fluid builds up in the joints, causing pain in the joints and inflammation that’s systemic – meaning it can occur throughout the body.

Get Arthritis Help!

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in America. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have it. Over 3 million new US cases are diagnosed per year.

Conventional treatments for arthritis fail to treat the underlying cause and primarily focuses on symptom relief. Pain relievers often lead to serious complications and do further damage to the important gut lining.

Since 1997 we’ve been helping patients overcome difficult health conditions like arthritis & we can likely help you too.

Dr. Minkoff

About

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
