ARTHRITIS what is it? Represents 5 decades of management and treatment of arthritis with an exciting future. Dr. Ralph Argen with over forty years of clinical experience treating arthritis writes for patients and medical personal. Most writings on arthritis in the past were descriptive analysis of symptoms. From these came the notion of what is frequently described as 25 or as many as 100 kinds of arthritis. ARTHRITIS what is it? suggests it may be one form of arthritis with many individual expressions of joint inflammation. The cortisone period began modern management and all that followed by damage and devastation. It altered treatment of arthritis forever; Argen covers the decades of evolving treatment and new ideas about DJD. Diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis gives no insight regarding the stage and involvement individually and Argen suggests new descriptive staged names as in diabetes. Rheumatology is now on the cutting edge of medicine with the use of new biological drugs opening new vistas of treatment and understanding of the disease, The author in ARTHRITIS what is it? covers all phases of arthritis including carpel tunnel and back pain demonstrating almost nothing works but in time almost everything works.
