We thought you might like to know about a new treatment available which we are offering to older patients who may be struggling with arthritis. It works by targeting and neutralising a protein that stimulates arthritic pain so is working with the body's immune system.
Above you can see a checklist which can help determine whether this treatment may be something of interest now or in the future.
The treatment is in the form of a monthly injection and has the following benefits;
No daily medication to remember
No known side effects
No effects on the kidney or liver
Can be used in conjunction with other medication
Costs are comparable with one months supply of prescription anti-inflammatory medication. We have seen huge success with some arthritic patients who have transitioned onto the new treatment.
The feedback has been hugely positive with the patient's quality of life significantly improved.
If you would like to discuss this further or need additional information, please call the practice for an appointment.
