The Dr.s have told me I have osteoarthritis. But it is my understanding that there are certain things that cause it that can be treated. I know I will always have it but would like to know for sure that there is nothing I can do to keep it from getting any worse.I live in West Virginia,could you direct me to someone who could help me.
Find a rheumatologist. Although most OA is primary meaning not associated with other types of arthritis, rarely the OA may be secondary to inflammatory arthritis, in whihc case the treatment might differ.
